Many people consider their pets to be as beloved family members as anyone else in the household. When medical attention is required, pet owners look to their veterinarian to provide exactly what is needed to promote the animal's recovery. Veterinary medicine is no less complicated than human medical care; vets must understand how to care for myriad animals for their services. Veterinary technicians work right alongside veterinarians in a way almost analogous to the ways in which a nurse would serve a doctor or physician. Vet technicians, too, must display diverse and comprehensive knowledge of many different animals.

These technicians perform tests and are trained in the diagnosis of many conditions that animals may be afflicted with. Additionally, veterinarians working in animal research may request the presence of a technician to support their work in the field. Naturally, people who love animals and long to care for them are drawn to this profession. However, veterinary technician work is sometimes arduous, requiring heavy lifting and an ability to withstand emotionally difficult and occasionally dangerous scenarios.

Vet technicians can train for either two or four years in order to earn the degree necessary to take up the job; each degree results in a slightly different job title, each calling for specific and unique demands. As pets continue to be regarded more frequently as prized family members, veterinary care will continue to augment, as will the demand for vet technicians, of whom there are actually quite few in the industry. One popular workplace for vet technicians is, understandably, the zoological and aquarium community. Entering these sectors is quite difficult, due to the great competition.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Our tuition numbers reflect data collected from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
