The only Veterinary Clinic that uses sign language in the Washington State area to communicate with the Deaf is Four Paws! They have a Deaf employee on the staff who dreams of becoming a Vet. Joel also gets to interview the Vets well! This is just another show reminding you all that Deaf people can do anything they dream of!

  • Cool beans! We have deaf lady working as vet assistance at Petsmart store in Dallas. Also, we have deaf lady working for animal shelter at City of Arlington for many years. I believe there’s more out there…

  • First I must say I am not deaf but have met some new friends of mine who are. I have seen how difficult it can be because people do not give them a chance. I am a firm believer that given the chance people can do just about anything. This just proves it. In February the animal shelter I volunteer for is putting on a event and I have been working very hard to bring the deaf to this event. I now want this more then ever now. Good luck to the lady in the video.

  • Way to go Sam! You can do it and you will become a Veterinary Technician one day!!! I’m a certified dental assistant in Maryland and also deaf. We, deaf, can do it! Good luck in your future!
