Vet Technician Jobs

As a vet, you will be required to perform a number of jobs depending on your place of employment. Many technical skills are required, most of which have some basis in medicine. Depending on whether one is specializing in large or small animals, most techs will be expected to be able to draw blood, take temperatures (rectally as well), supervise anesthesia, administer medications and much more.

The most basic vet technician jobs require basic skills like being able to observe and record vital signs, such as heart and breathing rate. Outside of the exam room, many vet technicians will be responsible for good record keeping, including administrative tasks such as typing, filing, and billing.

In order to find a good job as a vet technician, you'll want to have stellar marks on your courses from the VT program, as well as glowing references and recommendations. Volunteering in an animal shelter or clinic is another great way to show your commitment to the treatment of animals. Combine all elements in your resume and you'll be sure to land a great job.
