My best friend is a veterinarian technician. She and her husband own an animal clinic and for years we’ve talked about taking a tour. Sadly, only now that we are about to move does it come to fruition.
We were greeted upon our arrival and we were first introduced to the receptionist. Our tour was then underway. We first visited the technician or lab room where we were shown the numerous instruments and tools that are used.
We were then able to watch in completion, a common surgery on a dog … castration. The kids were very interested … though not so much in the particulars of this specific surgery … just the process of surgery itself. It could have been any surgery.
We departed shortly after and enjoyed going out to lunch together. Later that afternoon, Buddy expressed to me, “I might like to be a veterinarian when I grow up.”
