Licensed veterinary technicians work under the supervision of veterinarians, just as a dental technician might work under a dentist. They may work for a variety of employers, including veterinarians' offices, pet hospitals, zoos, and animal shelters. They may also work in laboratories dealing with X-rays, blood samples, and performing other lab tests.
