Veterinary technicians are the nurses of veterinary medicine. In Ohio, you must have a two or four year degree from an accredited college and pass a board exam to receive a degree in veterinary technology. They do more than just nursing though. If you had to list out all of their duties, you would include at least parts of some of the following fields.

Many technicians also assist with reception and kennel duties as well.
