Veterinary technicians use a multitude of tools because their duties are widely varied. The task that they are performing at the moment will determine what tools they use, but they range from simple diagnostic tools such as a thermometer or stethoscope to radiographic and ultrasonographic machinery. Any tools or equipment commonly used to provide nursing care are used by veterinary technicians on a daily basis--an array of scissors, bandaging materials, fluid pumps, thermometers, stethoscopes, IV catheters, urinary catheters, blood pressure monitors, etc.
