Dear Dr. WonderVet or Office Manager:
I am contacting you regarding the veterinary technician position I saw posted on Indeed. I believe I would be a great fit for your practice and can fill the requirements listed.
From the time that I was young I have always taken an interest in animals. In high school I began volunteering at a rescue organization and since then have continued working toward my goal of being a successful veterinary technician.
After graduating from high school, I worked as a kennel technician at ABC Pet Hospital, and then went on to complete a veterinary technician program at Vet Tech Academy. Since graduating from my veterinary technician program 4 years ago, I have worked as a full-time vet tech for XYZ Pet Hospital. In addition to my experience as a veterinary technician, I am also cross-trained and can perform duties in the reception area. I am relocating closer to your hospital, and looking for a position near my home.
My skill set includes the following:
Assisting veterinarians and restraining pets in the exam rooms, helping in surgery, monitoring anesthesia, and caring for hospitalized pets (administering fluids and medications, giving injections, etc.
Performing dental prophylaxis, dental radiographs, and charting teeth
Providing excellent client communication, answering phones, checking out clients, scheduling appointments, etc.
Familiar with Avimark, Cornerstone, and PetDesk software programs
Using autoclave and wrapping and preparing surgical packs
Proficient in drawing blood, placing IV catheters, running blood machines, fecal testing, performing radiographs, etc.
I have a positive attitude and work hard to provide good service in the hospital. Attached is my resume. Please contact me if you would like to set up an interview. I look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for your consideration.
