Work has been getting a little better, the girl who originally started off being a bitch to me has been a little better. The other one, however, still doesn't talk to me. Its fine by me, I just try to keep busy when I work with her.
The nice thing about work is that last week my office manager asked me to step into the back and tech for a moment because she needed to handle something. It wasn't anything big it was literally just to comfort a dog while the doctor placed an urine catheter for him. I just sat on the floor and rubbed his ears and talked to him. When I was done, one of the veterinary technician's told me I was welcome to come hang out with them anytime. I kindly thanked her and told I was interested in learning things about the back.
Then two days later the same tech was pulling blood from a dog and asked me to come over and just distract him by patting him on the head.
This week the head veterinarin came to the front and called me into the back. At first I though I was getting in trouble for something because I'm still learning how to do things and make small mistakes. Instead he asked me to hold a cat for blood withdrawl. I told him I haven't done that in a long time - since a few years back at the shelter. So he reshowed me and then explained the different vials they use for testing. After that he told me I did a good job and brought me over to the pharamacy and taught me how to fill prescriptions.
It was announced that his next appointment was there so I figured he was going to send me back to the front desk - however I was surprised again when he told me to follow him into the room. I held the cat for examination while he talked to the owner. Sadly I couldn't stay in there for the whole appointment because the other receptionist had to go pick up her daughter.
And lastly yesterday the technician's were talking about how the doctor wasnts to cross train me and they're all pretty excited to have me help in the back. So while I was back there one of them asked me to help with blood withdrawl on a dog again.
It's really exciting and interesting. I hope I can get back there more this upcoming week.
