First of all allow me to say I love working with animals. What a challenge to be able to assess the needs of a creature that cannot speak. Animals have a way of communicating that is uniquely their own. I find great achievement when I break down this communication barrier. I worked some time as a vet tech. As well I have managed a pet grooming salon, where I was also a groomer. I own several breeds of dogs and care for a special needs pot bellied pig.
