Veterinary Technology

Everyone is passionate about something. We all have causes we believe in and things that matter to us deeply. For some of us, that desire involves caring for animals. Are you someone who is naturally sympathetic to the needs of others? Are you looking to improve the quality of life for animals? If you answered yes to these questions, the Veterinary Technology program could be a great fit for you.

Veterinary technicians, commonly called vet techs, typically work under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian doing clinical work. That includes tasks such as performing various medical tests, and treating animals with medical conditions and diseases. Since you will have a wide array of responsibilities, we want to ensure you have the skills and confidence necessary to:

  • Aid in medical, surgical and diagnostic procedures
  • Maintain medical records and gather patient information
  • Assist with radiography and dental prophylaxes
  • Collect laboratory specimens and aid in the analysis process
  • Take the California Registered Veterinary Technician State Board Examination upon graduation*
