Veterinary AssistantTom Dickson
I have always been obsessed with anything involving animals from insects to whales. Learning about all creatures has always been a passion of mine. After 6 years of working in a pet store in New York and various warehouse jobs, I finally have the chance to carry out my dreams and work with animals at VCA Tampa Bay. My ultimate goal is to return to school to enter the veterinary technician program.

Veterinary Tech School: Hillsborough Community College
When I was little I always imagined myself working with animals. I had my own pretend animal clinic where I would use my own pets as my patients. I am currently enrolled in the veterinary technician program at St. Petersburg College. Being a part of the bond between a pet and their owner as well as helping pets heal is what makes me love this job!
