A veterinarian technician is like what a nurse is to a doctor.

To be a vet tech it takes 2-4 years of school after high school.

They do a lot of the appointments and check ups and assist in

surgery. A veterinarian assistant is like a secretary to a vet

hospital. They do all the finicial and appointment stuff with the

owners of the animals and then when owners show up for their

appointments, a veterinarian assistant will love on the

dog/cat/other, weigh them, and then bring them to a room for a vet

tech or actual vet to look at.
