With an uptick in pet adoption during the COVID crisis, there has been a monumental growth in the world of veterinarians and veterinary hospitals across the globe. While we are still in the early days of coming out of quarantine, it’s obvious that many people have soothed their stress by adding a new pet to the family. The vet industry is in high demand these days, and if you are looking to go back to school, becoming a veterinary professional may be right up your alley.
Before you jump right in, however, let’s take a look at how a veterinary practice runs post-Covid. In this video, we will follow a day in the life of a veterinary professional.
First of all, being a veterinarian requires excellent communication skills. You will be making phone calls, writing emails, and talking with clients all day long. A friendly and outgoing personality is important to making guests feel comfortable, and a smile can go a long way in the office. While Covid has enforced masking among patients as well as vets, there is still plenty of contact to make with the animals in check-ups and vaccinations. If you’re looking to become a vet, look forward to lots of puppies!
