By Morgan Hunt
Tell us about your background in the veterinary field and your role.
What is a typical day like for you in the office?
What is most challenging about what you do?
Euthanasias. My heart will always break for those who go through this.
What do you enjoy most about your job as a vet tech?
Being with the animals of course!
What is your most memorable moment in your career, and why?
So far, the most memorable moment in my career was moving up to a technician level. I went from not knowing a single thing about what I do to an assistant and only in 1.5 years I became a technician and honestly couldn’t be more proud of myself.
What do you enjoy about writing for NPP?
I enjoy writing blogs for NPP because it keeps me on my toes, I am constantly being educated and I love being able to take that information to work to help my co-workers, clients, and family/friends with their pets. And because I love my NPP team !!!!
Tell us about your pets!
Tyson my smart 5 year old pittie mix, I adopted with my boyfriend when I was 19 almost 20! He was my first dog of my own and a huge responsibility to take on! At about 2 years old I found out he had a heart murmur grade 3/6 which is moderate. Tyson gets yearly echocardiograms to stay up on his heart and it’s actually much better now at a grade about 1.5-2/6. He’s my snuggle bug but do not try to snuggle too much- he’s almost like a cat, he likes to sleep all day and not be bothered but he loves a good hike and LOVES to swim!!
Pongo my loving 2 year old Dalmatian, that my boyfriend and I bought from a breeder in East Hartford. He’s my shadow and probably one of the best decisions I have made. At about 8 weeks of age he started showing signs of urinary stones which is why I became so very interested in nutrition and worked close with Nicci to find a diet that would suite him best- nutrition is huge with Dalmatians because you have to pay close attention to their purine levels as that is what causes the stone formation. Pongo LOVES hiking, tennis balls, and FOOD.
If you could give one piece of advice to pet owners, what would it be?
Pay close attention to what you feed your beloved pet, working both in a vet and with NPP I have noticed plenty of times where if diet would have improved there would be major beneficial outcomes. And, also do your research!! Do not be afraid to ask questions !!
Asking the important questions now…can we see some pictures of your pets?
