A veterinary technician works with veterinarians. Some areas of responsibility for veterinary technicians include general animal care, surgical assistance, medical treatments, laboratory tests and X-rays. A veterinary technician may function as an anesthetist, a nutritional counselor, and a shoulder for the client to lean on in times of stress. The work of the veterinary technician varies with the type of practice. In a small animal practice, the technician will usually be involved in all aspects of patient care and at least some office management. In larger practices and in institutions, the technician may become specialized in some area of practice such as surgery or intensive care.
