Veterinary technician

A veterinary technician (also called a vet tech), is a person trained and liscensed to assist veterinarians. Their job is similar to that of a nurse. They scan animals with various devices like X-ray machines, do blood tests, give anaesthesia, and help the veterinarian in other tasks. Vet techs are different from veterinary assistants, for the latter has no training or license to perform alot of the tests.


The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is responsible for accrediting schools with either a 2-year Associate's degree or a (rarely offered) 4-year Bachelor's degree. The organization just recently started to accredit schools that offer distance education. Different states have different regulations regarding who can practice as a vet tech. Some require one to be a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT), some require one to be a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT), and still others require one to be a Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT).
