Char Borchers Stony Poit, NY 11/12/2010 11:21:02 AM I have been a Vet Tech for 35 years.( tho unliscenced, I missed that opportunity by two years to be grandfathered in, I still feel I qualify for this title, I earned it!) I got my start in an animal shelter , got a job at an animal hospital and started my career. I have assisted in surgery, moved on to work in an emergency clinic where I was in charge of the entire hospital over night, and have done just about anything and everything a person can do in an animal hospital. I love it, and although my dream to become a vet never came true, this is truely the next best thing!
