Veterinarians rely on the skills of veterinary technicians to provide superior animal care. These technicians do many of the same tasks for a veterinarian that nurses would for a physician. Veterinary technicians most often work with small-animal practitioners who care for cats and dogs, but they may also do a variety of tasks with mice, sheep, pigs, cattle and birds. You can choose to start your career with a vet practice or zoo, focus on research or concentrate on veterinary products sales and development.
