Veterinary Technician Jobs


If you are thinking or training for a new job, why not consider the benefits of training to become a veterinary technician? According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Demand for veterinary technician jobs is predicted to exceed supply in the coming years 2010 - 2020.

Veterinary technician jobs typically entail carrying out routine clinical and administrative tasks in order to free up time for a more highly qualified veterinary professional, such as a veterinarian, to focus on more complex procedures.

The health services sector, which includes veterinary technicians amongst others, is predicted to grow by 28% between 2002 and 2012. According to the Bureau of Labor, reasons the veterinary industry, in particular, is flourishing are:
  • Consumer demand for more complex procedures
  • Pet owners with higher disposable incomes
  • Demand for more advanced animal health care
As complex procedures become more commonplace, it also means that there is plenty of opportunity to become trained for a veterinary technician job in a specialized area. If you decide to concentrate on a specialty this may require further training. Examples of specialist areas include:
  • Preventive dental treatments
  • Anesthetics
  • Animal behavior
  • Surgical procedures
If you hold a baccalaureate degree you may receive a higher salary and greater job responsibility, according to AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association). Veterinary technician job stability may be good; and animals may always require medical treatment irrespective of the economic climate.
