Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
A list of veterinary schools has recently been added to the Vet Tech Guide website. Now, those looking to accelerate their career or embark down an entirely different career path can use this online resource to find institutions to provide the precise education needed to begin a career as a veterinary technician.
For those who are unable to pursue the lengthy education necessary for becoming a veterinarian, but still posses an affinity for tending to animal health needs, a career choice as a vet tech is the perfect solution. Certification from any of the leading institutions listed on VetTechGuide.org will take only 2 years to complete.
Once completed, a certified vet tech can expect to apply their knowledge by providing immediate emergency care to wounded animals, diagnosing the condition of animals, preparing for surgeries and administering anesthesia, and explaining treatments and medications that are prescribed by the veterinarian. Consider a vet tech is to a veterinarian as a nurse is to a doctor.
In addition to the 2 year degree, many aspiring vet techs will also be expected to pass an exam, called the Veterinarian Technician National Examination, to complete their certification.
However, most schools include this exam as part of the necessary coursework for graduation.
Some looking to specialize in a specific realm of veterinary services can use VetTechGuide.org to locate schools that specialize in certain programs. A specialized vet tech can focus their studies on anesthesia, internal medicine, dental, and emergency and critical care.
