Veterinary Technician Jobs in Washington

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.

Veterinary technicians usually work with small domestic animals, such as cats and dogs. These technicians often need to communicate with pet owners and educate them on future care as well as medication procedures. Thus, interpersonal skills are important for this profession.
