What job has all the responsibilities of a nurse, janitor, secretary, receptionist with all the pay of an entry level fast food worker? A veterinary assistant. The animal care industry is not all fluffy bunnies, cute kittens, and happy puppies. This is an industry with low pay, little benefits and a high rate of burnout.
However, I love my job and I can't imagine doing another. I love all animals and like most of their humans. I've been encouraged to put my "work stories" in writing. I hope you enjoy them. If anything I say offends you, there is an X at the top of your screen, click on it.
