Thank you for answering :) also what did you need to take in order for you to be where you are now? As in school wise.
Well. I was graduating high school when I was hired. I started as a volunteer and I worked my way up. So I’m trained on the job. I’m working towards my BA in biology currently.
I have a question to ask. I really want to work with exotic animals as a vet tech. Is that possible ? What will I need in order for this to happen. I mean I know I need to go to school obviously but what will I need to take ? Sorry to bother.
It’s never a bother when I get these questions. Honestly I’m probably not he best person to ask. I started working with exotics purely out of luck. I saw an opportunity and I lunged at it. What I have read is that it helps to have volunteered in zoos and exotic rescues. Then knowing the right people. Go to vet conferences and put yourself out there to zoo vets and zoological associations. The more people you know the more your name gets thrown around. Look into specialty clinics. They’re more prone to seeing a variety of species.
My coworkers are the best. I’m so glad I can be at school and know they’re taking great care of her.
Thank you for sending good vibes! You guys are awesome. The dr is closing up now. Her vitals are stable and the site looks good so far!
Edit: it’s grade 1 soft tissue sarcoma. It was diagnosed two years ago and partially excised at that time. It took two years to grow back and ulcerate. This time were being more aggressive.
My my 11 y/o muttski is currently on the table getting her 5th digit amputated cause the soft tissue sarcoma grew back and ulcerated. It kills me not to be there to work on her and make sure she’s ok.
