Veterinary technicians work side-by-side with veterinarians to care for animals and perform medical tests under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian to help diagnose the illnesses and injuries of animals.

Veterinary technologists and technicians must complete a postsecondary program in veterinary technology. Technologists need a 4-year bachelor’s degree, and technicians need a 2-year associate’s degree. Typically, both technologists and technicians must take a credentialing exam and must become registered, licensed, or certified, depending on the requirements of the state in which they work.
