What’s Wrong with My Pet?

What’s Wrong with My Pet? – Techs, Tips, & Ticks

Dr. Rossi’s returning guest this week is Andrea Works, a veterinary technician. Andrea shared with us her passion for animals and her job. She explained the requirements for becoming a veterinary technician, and gave details of her training. And she related several stories about some of her more difficult days, and shared some of her wilder stories, as well.

Dr. Rossi also discussed a recent article describing stress-inducing factors in the veterinary clinic on pets. Some of these stressors were a big surprise, and you’ll have to tune in to find out! Finally, he brought us up to date on emerging tick-borne diseases in cats, ending with some great tips to reduce the ticks in YOUR back yard.

As always, you can find more of Dr. Rossi’s pet tips in his “What’s Wrong With My Pet?” series of books, or read more about the life of a veterinarian in “All Things Cold and Slimy,” all available on AMAZON.COM and iTunes.
