Other desired skills include the ability to read intestinal parasite screens, operate laboratory equipment, and assist with radiology.  Good communication skills are vital to ensure proper treatment during a pet’s visit and being able to help at the front desk.  Vet techs are cross-trained to work at the front desk during peak times or to cover necessary shifts.  They also play a major role in assisting kennel staff in caring for and cleaning up after pets as needed during office hours and on the weekend shifts.  Prior experience and familiarity with AVImark software are preferred.

Client Care Receptionists
