Veterinary Assistant Training Program
Veterinary assistants are critical members of veterinary practice; they are responsible for the overall well-being of animals under their care. Vet assistants work under the supervision of a veterinarian and perform a number of routine tasks. These tasks can include monitoring and caring for animals, managing surgical equipment, assisting in emergency first aid, and administering medication prescribed by the veterinarian.
Working as a veterinary assistant is a rewarding career choice that allows you to impact the lives of pets on a daily basis. In order to successfully perform the job, a vet assistant should be compassionate, able to pay attention to detail and be in overall good physical health. Because of the role vet assistants play in the medical treatment of animals, they must be able to follow instructions as directed by the veterinarian. Veterinary assistants must also be able to lift and restrain some heavier animals during examinations.
