There are always challenges and surprises in a vet tech's job. They encounter different kinds of animals with different kinds of conditions everyday. And they will have to deal with each of them in a unique way.

Euthanasia is also something that vet techs are accustomed to. They just have to do this lonely procedure in order to help end an animals suffering. They are also there to support the owners in these moments.

Vet techs are then confronted with emotional and psychological challenges after witnessing tragic deaths. But they have to exercise their professionalism in times like this. They may be affected but they won't let it show and go on with their job.

These challenges being confronted to vet techs are difficult. Indeed not everyone can be up for this, not even all vet techs.

Vet techs have shared there moments of happiness when they see animals recover. They say that is a wonderful feeling to see those animals play like they used to. It gives them a sense of fulfillment.

They also get all sorts of acknowledgments from pet owners. Nothing is just as wonderful as seeing a little boy jump in joy knowing that his little puppy is going to be alright. It is so rewarding!

And mind you that vet techs are not just for little kittens and puppies. They can deal with different kinds of animals too. This makes their job even more challenging and surprising.
