Veterinary Technician Programs

Regardless of which veterinary tech specialty you choose, you may need to have a love for animals, basic math and analytical skills, the ability to thrive in a fast-paced and potentially grueling environment, and the capability to communicate effectively with pet owners.

Veterinary technicians may work at a private practice, under the guidance of a licensed veterinarian. Technicians may help gather medical histories, collect blood, tissue, or other specimens that might be helpful in diagnosing the patient, and assist in medical or surgical procedures.

A slightly smaller percentage of veterinary technicians may also work at research facilities to learn more about the care and treatment of animals, or to conduct other animal-related research projects.

Employment Prospects for Vet Techs

Vet tech jobs are expected to grow by 52% by 2020 according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. The growth is much faster than average with the lowest 10 percent earning less than $20,500, and the top 10 percent earning more than $44,030.
