What are the main differences between a veterinary assistant and a veterinary technician?
Both veterinary assistants and technicians play important roles in animal care, but there are some differences in their job duties and responsibilities.
Veterinary assistants typically provide support to the veterinary technicians and veterinarians. They may help with tasks such as holding animals for exams or procedures, cleaning and maintaining equipment and facilities, and providing basic care such as feeding and exercising animals.
Veterinary technicians, on the other hand, have more advanced training and certification. They are responsible for performing many of the technical tasks involved in animal care, such as taking blood samples, administering medications, and conducting diagnostic tests. They may also provide more advanced medical care, such as anesthesia administration and surgical assistance.
Overall, both veterinary assistants and technicians play important roles in providing quality care for animals. While their job duties may differ, they work together as a team to ensure the well-being of the animals they care for.
What are the advantages of joining an AmeriVet partner practice as a veterinary assistant?

AmeriVet is unlike any other veterinary practice we know of. We are committed to valuing people and pets first—from each patient to every veterinary staff member.

What are the most sought-after skills as a veterinary assistant?
A passion for animals!
A knack for clear communication!
A set of highly dexterous hands!
There is a myriad of fundamental skills veterinary assistants should have. As a DVM's right-hand person, veterinary assistants play a critical role in any successful veterinary practice. And while nimble fingers are a huge plus, the most essential skills a veterinary assistant can have is humility, reliability, and a strong work ethic. No job should be too small to complete; no task should be too menial. Hard work paired with a desire to grow will set you up to become an indispensable member of the team.
