What are some tips for being a veterinary technician assistant?

The job I have a working interview for does not call it a veterinary assistant position. They call it veterinary technican assistant, where one would be assisting the technician with fecals, blood work, monitoring anesthesia, UA's, filling prescriptions,etc. Perhaps this IS the role of a veterinary assistant and this vet is just using a different type name for it. Anyway, any tips for working this type of position? I have been a veterinary receptionist, but have never helped out in the back. I would really like this job, so any tips, or advice would be great!! Thanks.

Keep your eyes open, take notes and don't be afraid to ask why or how something is done. Then after each day's work go home and read over your notes from that day on procedures at the clinic and then review them again before you go into work. This will help you to pick up on things much more quickly... More
