Veterinary Technicians perform many of the same tasks for veterinarians that nurses and other professionals perform for physicians. These tasks generally include: general animal care; surgical assistance; medical treatments; laboratory tests, x-rays; anesthesia; radiology; and nursing and critical care.
Vet Techs typically work closely with Veterinarians in animal clinical health-care settings such as small or large animal hospitals or clinics.
As Vet Techs advance in their careers, many move to management and supervisory positions in animal health-care facilities and service companies.
Upon completion of Platt’s Vet Tech program, graduates of the program are awarded a Veterinary Technician Associates of Science degree.
