In most facilities, veterinary receptionists provide the services of manning the front desk and scheduling appointments. However, in many establishments, veterinary receptionists are required to do much more than just man the front desk. Apart from their usual job of providing tier one services, a veterinary receptionist will do a number of other jobs which may include setting appointments, welcome clients and animals to the clinic, assist with filling out forms and provide clients with information on clinical procedures.

While it is not necessary for a veterinary receptionist to be an animal lover, it does help if she is compassionate towards them as this tends to put clients at ease.
