Veterinary technicians are trained in the care and handling of animals, the basic principles of normal and abnormal physiology, and in routine diagnostic and therapeutic clinical procedures. Veterinary technicians work under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian, performing a wide variety of tasks. Once credentialed, veterinary technicians can also specialize in a particular discipline. Specialties include dentistry, anesthesia, surgery, emergency and critical care, internal medicine, clinical pathology, nutrition, equine nursing and zoological medicine.
