Veterinary technicians fill many roles in veterinary clinics. You might even say they’re the glue that holds the clinic together.
Veterinary technology programs are usually two to four years long. Then before they can practice, graduates must pass a veterinary board exam. Over time, they have continuing education and re-certification requirements.
Veterinary technicians assist veterinarians, treat animals, collect blood and other samples and run laboratory tests. They also often help with dental and other procedures, monitor anesthesia and even manage the clinic.
The demand for veterinary technicians has never been greater. So, if you know an animal lover with the compassion and determination to do the job, spread the word.
