Veterinary Technician Salary


Pursue veterinary technician training and you may improve your salary prospects.
As a veterinary technician, your responsibilities may be greater and your clinical expertise may be more valuable to a veterinarian. You may be expected to carry out routine sampling, tests, and procedures, freeing up valuable time for a veterinarian to spend on more specialized work. The more duties you can take over and the more time you can save for your employer.

According to the U.S.United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, median annual salary of veterinary technologists and technicians was $29,710 in May 2010. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $20,500, and the top 10 percent earned more than $44,030.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Veterinary technologists and technicians may work in private clinics, laboratories, and animal hospitals. Their jobs may be physically or emotionally demanding. Many technologists and technicians may have to work evenings, weekends, or holidays.

These sectors generally use laboratory animals and therefore may need veterinary technicians to be even more highly trained. The Bureau of Labor states that employers recommend American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) certification for those vet techs seeking employment in a research facility.
