Tricky question, eh? Here's the deal: if your boss asked you to do anything outside of your job description just say, "Yes!" As a vet tech you will have a wide range of responsibilities already, but there may be times when you're asked to do something an assistant typically does. You might even be asked to take care of something a veterinarian does! When asked to do something you don't know how to do, now that's a different story. "Sure, can you show me how to do it? I have an idea, but I could use a little help." While we encourage an enthusiastic YES to anything your boss asks of you, use discretion. Make sure it's a task you're knowledgeable about it enough to give it a go. If not, don't be afraid to ask for help!
