Veterinary Technicians

 


 

 quote

The veterinary technician is an integral member of the veterinary health care team who has been educated in the care and handling of animals, the basic principles of normal and abnormal life processes, and in routine laboratory and clinical procedures.

All veterinary technicians work under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian.  While a veterinary technician can assist in performing a wide variety of tasks, they cannot diagnose, prescribe, perform surgery, or engage in any activity prohibited by the California Veterinary Practice Act.

In private practice a veterinary technician handles many of the same responsibilities that nurses and other professionals perform for physicians

They are trained to

  • Obtain and record patient case histories
  • Collect specimens and perform laboratory procedures.
  • Provide specialized nursing care
  • Prepare animals, instruments, and equipment for surgery
  • Assist in diagnostic, medical, and surgical procedures
  • Expose and process radiographs
  • Advise and educate pet owners
  • Perform dental procedure
