Veterinary Assistant Career Information

Veterinary assistants are entry-level healthcare professionals that work in many different veterinary settings. They work with Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians to provide medical care for sick or injured animals. Veterinary assistants handle sterilizing lab and surgical equipment.
