Veterinary Assistant Certificate

Veterinary assistants look after animals in animal hospitals and clinics. They care for the well-being of animals by performing routine tasks under the supervision of veterinarians, veterinary technologists, and technicians. Working as a veterinary assistant can be a good way to start on a path to other jobs in animal health.
