“I am a Vet Tech”
By Kelly Stone
A nurse, an anesthesiologist, an x-ray technician, a candy striper, a mail, a janitor, a surgery assistant, a loving hand, a pharmacist, a teacher, 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 Lamaze coach, 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.
Make the pain go away, save a life, see what is wrong, clean anything, ease a mind, fill drug orders, show the right way, end suffering, give kisses, get kisses, clean teeth, bring someone to do the right thing.
A strong stomach, a big heart, a thoughtful mind, the strength to do the right thing even when it hurts, the ability to fall in love in 5 seconds, and the deepest love for all creatures
