Becoming a Veterinary Technician

Wednesday, May 2, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

If you’d love to be a veterinarian but can’t face eight years of college, you may want to consider a career as a Veterinary Technician.  They work in private and public clinics , in labs, on farms and in classrooms. They’re responsible for things like preparing the animals for surgery and performing routine pet exams. They monitor vital signs, take x rays and work on animal’s dental hygiene. A large part of the job is educating people about how best to care for their pets. To begin a career as a Veterinary Technician, most states require that you complete a two year program. You’ll also have to pass a national board exam. This can be a very gratifying career. It combines a love of animals with medicine and people.

Remember, your pets count!
