Veterinary Technician Vs Client

Veterinary Technician Vs Client

Inspired by actual personal experiences during my 18 years as a veterinary technician.

    Wow. She smothered her own pet to death, with love.
    One of the most annoying types of customers are the “self-taught” aka “I Googled It” aka “I read it on Wikipedia so now I’m an informed expert”

    Okay, I will admit, I am occasionally guilty of the, “I looked up X on the internet” when taking my dog or horse to the vet. But, I always do it out of curiosity rather than actual faith in the diagnostic abilities of the internet, and I obviously immediately concede when the vet says I’m wrong. & every time I have been wrong about something when I suggest a possibility to the vet they have been very nice & informative & explained to me why X is not the case and how to tell when X is the case.

    Omg, I’m a vet tech and I have to say I laughed my ass off through this whole thing. They really hit the nail on the head with the difficult client stereotype. Love how she felt the need to educate the tech about what Dr. Google taught her.

    Haha, got it exactly right with this nightmare client! I’d like to say it’s unbelievable if I hadn’t seen it in our own practice so many times…
