Administer diagnostic tests and assist veterinarians. Veterinary technicians observe and monitor animal health, collect samples for analysis, run laboratory tests, and continually update patient records. They also aid veterinarians during a variety of procedures by preparing animals for surgery, restraining pets as necessary, and delivering anesthesia.
