Veterinary Technologists and Technicians

You love your cat Fluffy, or your dog Teddy, or your goldfish Seymour, or even your boa constrictor Athena. That love means you want state-of-the-art veterinary care should a pet health problem arise. You depend on a well-trained veterinarian to do his or her job. But did you know that veterinarians depend on quality veterinary technologists and technicians? These professionals do for veterinarians what nurses do for physicians. The job of a veterinary technologist or technician is to perform the routine laboratory and clinical procedures so that veterinarians can do the more complex work.
