Job Description for Veterinary Technologist / Technician

A veterinary technologist/technician's main task is to assist a veterinarian in the diagnosis and preparation of an animal for treatment. He or she must be able to conduct tests such as X-rays, blood work, dental scans, and medical injections. While a veterinary technologist/technician does not diagnose the animal himself or herself, he or she will work to provide the lead veterinarian with all necessary information in order to make the diagnosis. As such, a veterinary technician's work is often physically demanding, as he or she must operate heavy medical machinery as well as restrain and/or lift large animal patients. While the veterinary technician does not need to possess extensive knowledge of animal injuries and illnesses, general knowledge is preferred, and knowledge of how to work medical equipment as well as the various tests performed is required.
