A veterinary assistant is a very diverse role that involves caring for animals and keeping the veterinary practice running smoothly. Under the supervision of a vet technician, you can expect to be hands-on with the animals as you conduct general animal care, grooming, monitoring and exercising as well as more specialist tasks such as helping with treatment and preparing for surgery. As a vet assistant, the roles may also require you to complete administrative tasks within the practice.
With a focus on caring for sick or injured animals, a veterinary nurse carries out treatments and mini procedures to get animals back in good health.
