During stressful times, you will likely be asked to assist with tasks beyond your scope of expertise. You may be asked to answer phones and assist the receptionist with customers. You might be asked to assist the vet technician with a surgery. Remember your title: Veterinary Assistant. Your role may be primarily focused on handling animals and their messes, but you are still an assistant. As an assistant, you have the opportunity to learn about what it takes to be a vet or a technician, how to run an office and how to deal with customers. All of these skills will be valuable for whatever career goal you have in mind. If you were asked this question, tell the interviewer enthusiastically, "I'm happy to help!"
