About this course:
Associate of Science in Veterinary Technology
The Veterinary Technology Program at the Platt School of Medical Sciences is specifically designed to provide in-depth study and training necessary to gain entry-level employment in animal health care.
Veterinary Technicians perform many of the same tasks for veterinarians that nurses and other professionals perform for physicians. These tasks generally include: general animal care; surgical assistance; medical treatments; laboratory tests, x-rays; anesthesia; radiology; and nursing and critical care.
Vet Techs typically work closely with Veterinarians in animal clinical health-care settings such as small or large animal hospitals or clinics.
As Vet Techs advance in their careers, many move to management and supervisory positions in animal health-care facilities and service companies.
