Dear Ms. Lessard:
When I learned of your need for a new Vet Nurse to join your clinic, I hastened to send you my resume for your review. As a technically skilled and compassionate professional with more than eight years of experience providing key animal healthcare and support in busy veterinary offices, I am confident in my ability to make a significant contribution to your clinic in this role.
From assessing animals’conditions and monitoring their vital signs to collecting lab samples and restraining animals for exams or surgeries, my expertise has prepared to excel in this position. With an Associate’s degree in Veterinary Technology—complemented by superior clinical skills—I am poised to make a strong and positive impact on your practice. Furthermore, I am adept at ensuring compassionate education and support for pet owners facing challenging, emotionally demanding circumstances, and my additional strengths in team collaboration, communication, and general administrative tasks position me to thrive in this role.
Highlights of my background include the following:
Supporting three veterinarians at Ruff Day Animal Clinic in Austin, Texas, providing overarching clinical support with acute injuries and diseases, chronic conditions, and preventative care.
Assisting with a wide range of laboratory and surgical procedures, such as spay/neuters, mass removals, dental radiography and extractions, FNAs, BG curves, and blood/urine/fecal tests.
Communicating compassionately with pet owners, clearly explaining complex medical terms and conditions while educating them on proper treatments and follow-up plans.
Dispensing prescriptions, selling retail products, scheduling future appointments, and managing animal records.
Maximizing veterinarians’productivity by completing preparatory work for procedures and performing procedures that did not require veterinarian oversight.
Working effectively with office and technician staff to ensure outstanding clinic efficiency and service levels.
With my proven skill set and excellent experience, coupled with my dedication to ensuring the highest level of animal care, I am sure that I could quickly exceed your expectations as your next Vet Nurse. I look forward to discussing the position in further detail. Thank you for your consideration.
