Veterinary Assistants are Integral in Healthcare

If you have a fond love of animals, then a career as a veterinary technician may be the ideal career for you! These professionals work alongside veterinarians in private practices, emergency clinics, research labs and zoos.

Once you become certified, you become an integral part of the veterinary healthcare system!

For instance, let’s say you work in a private vet clinic. Whenever a client comes in with their cat or dog, you would take a weight for the animal, check their temperature and take down a written history to add to the chart. Depending on what treatments the pet might need that day, you may also be responsible for drawing blood and giving medications.

Vet techs are invaluable members of a veterinary healthcare team, so there’s no surprise why these professionals are in demand!

Why We love  
Veterinary Medicine

Not only is the human healthcare industry growing, but so is the animal healthcare industry. There are three main driving factors to the growth we’re seeing, namely a growing pet population, an aging pet population, and expanding pet treatment options.

We all know that pets enrich our lives and add a lot of joy. But research has also shown that having pets is great for our health. This may be why more and more people are adopting pets into their families. In fact, according to the American Pet Products Association, the number of dogs kept as pets has grown 50% between the years 1988 and 2017.

The life expectancy for dogs and cats has actually increased over the decades, thanks to more pet owners and veterinarians focusing on preventative care. But as our pets age, they do require more healthcare services that go beyond traditional routine care.

Just like people, aging pets will require more diagnostics through X-rays, CT scans and MRIs. Those with chronic illnesses and diseases will need frequent treatments and medications filled.

All of this data points to the fact that veterinarian technicians could be in high demand for years to come.

Just how fast is the veterinarian technician field growing?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://bls.gov), employment of veterinary technicians is projected to grow 19% from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations.

“Veterinary Assistant is a great choice for those who love animals…a rewarding & exciting career!”
