  • Course description
    At the Vet Tech Institute, we love our students as much as we love our animals. We are committed to helping our students succeed during school and after graduation.

    From assisting in surgery to monitoring a sick or injured animal, veterinary technicians help care for animals of all shapes and sizes. Veterinary technicians perform a variety of tasks under the supervision of a veterinarian. These tasks include:
    • Collecting and analyzing test specimens
    • Taking x-rays to detect abnormalities
    • Administering anesthesia
    • Assisting with surgical procedures
    • Performing injections and running IVs
    After finishing the program, you'll be trained in handling and restraining animal patients, office procedures, anesthesia, sterilization, radiology, pharmacology, and other procedures.

    An externship during your last semester will give you even more real-world experience.
