What is a veterinary technician?

A veterinary technician is trained to assist veterinarians in caring for pets. These professionals are equivalent to a human nurse at your human doctors office. Veterinary technicians have received extensive training and are an integral part of your pet’s healthcare experience. Responsibilities for the technicians at our animal hospital in Tampa include collecting patient samples, performing lab tests, assisting during patient exams and dental cleanings, and taking x-rays. One of the most valuable roles that our veterinary technicians perform is education.  They can answer most of your questions about your pet’s treatment plan.
