What is the difference between a veterinarian technicion and a veterinarian assistant?
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.
