I currently am a receptionist at a Veterinary Clinic. It pays $15 per hour. I was looking into getting my vet tech degree, and it only pays a dollar or two more per hour than that. Why? I have no idea where to go in life. I am a yoga instructor also, I would like to do that on the side of being a vet tech possibly. I just want to learn how to live comfortably and afford my own studio so I can cook and adopt a dog that I can go running with.
