Because veterinary assisting is an entry-level position with no requirements for specialized education or training, veterinary assistants generally start out making close to minimum wage. Over time the hourly wage may increase, but it will often be limited because many states limit the tasks that a veterinary assistant may perform at all or without a licensed veterinarian within line of sight.

Veterinary assistants tend to make close to minimum wage. This is an entry level-position in a veterinary facility and training is generally done on the job. Over time, veterinary assistants may increase their pay rate, however due to laws/rules in each state that limit what a veterinary assistant can do vs. a veterinary technician, veterinary assistants often do not make as much as a credentialed veterinary technician even with experience.
