Veterinary Technician Specialists in Emergency and Critical Care

Veterinary Technician Specialists in Emergency and Critical Care

Veterinary technicians who are interested in continuing education programs may want to consider specializing in emergency and critical care for animals. There has been a fast growth in the technology and skills that are available for emergency medicine for animals. Pet owners are also more willing to pay for emergency care for their animals because they are treated as loved ones who are part of the family. In a emergency situation, a pet owner does not want to turn treatment down for their pets. Without the proper education and training it can be difficult for vet techs to keep up-to-date on the newest technologies effecting the field of veterinary medicine.

Certification For Emergency And Critical Care Vet Tech Specialists

In order to obtain certification in emergency and critical care, veterinary technicians must meet credentialing requirements of the Academy of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Technicians (AVECTT). The AVECTT has specific requirements that must be met before vet techs can apply for the AVECTT exam which allows for vet techs to become specialists in emergency and critical care. Some of the requirements required by the AVECTT include, but are not limited to:

  • Licensed veterinary technician
  • Three years of full-time work experience working in emergency and critical care
  • 25 hours of continuing education in emergency and critical care coursework
  • Continuing education must be obtained from a nationally recognized program
  • Submit a case record log with a minimum of 50 cases recorded

Vet techs must complete the specific criteria before they can apply for the certification exam. The certification exam is designed to test the education in emergency medicine for animals. By passing the certification exam, you can become a licensed specialist in emergency and critical care. A specialist in a specific field can provide numerous job opportunities as well as an increased salary for veterinary technicians.
