Job opportunities

Career opportunities for skilled veterinary technicians are growing fast. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the employment of veterinary technicians to grow 20% from 2016 to 2026. This rapid growth is attributed to the fact that more veterinary practices are utilizing vet techs to do general lab work and hiring skilled vet techs to replace lower-skilled veterinary staff.*
