I’ve been working as a veterinary assistant at one small animal place for about a year and a half (before that I worked at a different practice for a year). Since COVID had had an effect on our field, I’ve done my best to adapt and make sure that I’m really doing a good job cleaning as well as restocking the hospital and still trying to be around as extra hands in case the techs/doctors need more hands for a patient. I’m the only assistant at my current place. I’ve been told that everyone really appreciates what I do at the hospital and they appreciate me stepping up to help others with their jobs when I can. However, recently my boss spoke to me very vaguely about techs and client services having issues with the things I do around the hospital, and that I needed to fix them or I’m out. However, when I asked her what I needed to work on she said to “ask them”..... my question is if the veterinary field is usually this way? This situation has me reconsidering this whole career path, as I love the medicine and working with such awesome patients, but I don’t like this aspect of vagueness and other issues that seemingly come out of the blue.
