Hi! I am Penny, and I was a vet nurse. I assisted a few different veterinarians over the years, but the reason I chose this job in the first place was because of my golden retriever, Bella. One day, Bella became very sick and I brought her to the veterinarian. While I was there, I found out that they were hiring a helper, and I knew that I wanted to learn more about dogs, so I took the job.
At first, it was a bit overwhelming to learn all of the new information and procedures, but I quickly became comfortable with my new role. I assisted the veterinarians with exams, surgeries, and other procedures, and I also helped with the overall care and treatment of the animals.
One of the things that I enjoyed most about my job was the variety of cases that I encountered each day. I assisted in surgeries on dogs, cats, and even a few exotic animals. I also helped to diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries. I was especially interested in emergency medicine and I took extra courses to specialize in this area, learning how to handle critical situations, such as trauma and cardiac arrest.
But, it was not just the animals that I helped, but also the families who loved them. I saw how much they loved and cared for their pets, and it was a privilege to be able to help them during a difficult time. I was always empathetic and compassionate to the families, giving them hope and keeping them informed throughout the treatment process.
As the years went by, I gained more experience and knowledge in my field and eventually became a senior veterinary nurse. I was respected by my colleagues and patients alike for my compassion and expertise. And, I knew that I had found my calling in life, as a vet nurse, helping animals and their families.
Even though I love my job, there's nothing like coming home to Bella, my golden retriever. She was the one that gave me the opportunity to pursue my passion, although she had already passed away. She was the reason that I started this journey, and I'll always be grateful for that. Her memory will always be with me, guiding me in my everyday work as a vet nurse, to help other animals and their families, and to continue to learn and improve my skills to better serve them.
