I accept my obligations to practice my profession conscientiously and with sensitivity, adhering to the profession’s Code of Ethics, and furthering my knowledge and competence through a commitment to lifelong learning.
I AM A VET TECH
I am...A nurse, an anesthesiologist, an x-ray technician, a candy striper, a maid, a janitor, a surgery assistant, a loving hand, a pharmacist, a teacher,
a mortician, a coroner, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to cry with, a sucker for a furry face, a lover of all pets, a face to lick, a midwife, a delivery nurse,
a Lamaze couch, a dental hygienist, a mediator, a vet's best friend, a pet's best friend, a babysitter, a physical therapist, a mother, a father, a playmate,
a chew toy, a protector...
I can...Make the pain go away, save a life, see what's wrong, clean anything, fill drug orders, show the right way, end suffering, give kisses, get kisses,
clean teeth, bring someone to do the right thing...
I have...A strong stomach, a big heart, a thoughtful mind, the strength to do the right thing even if it hurts, the ability to fall in love in 5 seconds, and
the deepest love for all creatures...
I am a Veterinary Technician.
