Platt College Distance Education offers an Associates degree in Veterinary Technology that is designed to provide in-depth study and training necessary to gain entry-level employment in animal health care.

Veterinary Technicians perform many of the same tasks for veterinarians that nurses and other professionals perform for physicians.

These tasks generally include:  general animal care; surgical assistance; medical treatments; laboratory tests, x-rays; anesthesia; radiology; and nursing and critical care.

Vet Techs typically work closely with Veterinarians in animal clinical health-care settings such as small or large animal hospitals or clinics.

As Vet Techs advance in their careers, many move to management and supervisory positions in animal health-care facilities and service companies.
