Missouri Veterinary Technician Schools.
Veterinary technician programs in Missouri focus on the practical elements of animal care and working alongside a doctor of veterinary medicine. Vet techs assist in various aspects of practice, such as assistance during clinical visits and during surgery, caring for animals and, in some cases, keeping accurate records of patients’ care. The coursework in this program includes both practical and theoretical classes. Some subjects that you might find on your class list include animal medicine for large and small creatures, lab procedures, microbiology, parasitology, veterinary pharmacology, and animal care. The outlook for new vet tech grads is good, as jobs in this field are expected to increase by around 36% between 2008 and 2018.
