The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Ashley Kinsley, CVT: National Vet Tech Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate our career, what we do, [and] how hard we work. Getting to show our compassion and put our heart and soul into what we do. So that's what I think that vet tech week means to me.
Get yourself enrolled in a very good technician program. It's a lifesaver. And not only does it give you the book aspect of it, but also you get to work in clinical stuff. You get the hands on with doing externships.
