Why are Veterinary Technicians important to any Veterinary Hospital?

Veterinary Technicians are the “nurses” in the animal field. Their many jobs include but aren’t limited to: preparing an animal for surgery; including anesthesia and monitoring; drawing blood for various tests; giving vaccines and educating clients under the care of the Veterinarian.

Two years of intense schooling at an accredited college prepares the technician for the final exam and practical to get a license to practice under New York law. After this, continuing education is required to keep members current with changing medical procedures. Veterinary Technicians are required to work under the supervision of a Veterinarian, allowing the doctor more time to practice medicine.
