#1 Vet Tech Program In Orange County: Stanbridge University
Now, more than ever, Vet Techs are needed to care for and help animals heal and recover. Some of the tasks Vet Techs can do when caring for animals are:
- Conducting animal examinations
- Providing emergency first-aid
- Administering anesthesia and monitoring responses
- Performing x-rays and other lab tests
- Preparing animals for surgery
- Administering medications and vaccinations
Veterinary Technicians are on the front-lines of animal care and are expected to be there when the owners cannot.
