A RVT is a registered veterinary technician. While having a strong love of animals is why most of us found our way into this profession, there is a lot more to it then that.
They are educated and knowledgeable.
They have graduated from a 2 or 4 year AVMA-accredited school and has taken and passed the VTNE (a national test) and Maryland boards. Once ‘registered,’ they must complete 24 credit hours of continuing education every three years to maintain their license.
Our vet techs perform a wide range of duties. It is actually easier to define what they can’t do instead! Legally, they can do everything EXCEPT perform surgery, offer prognosis and diagnosis, and write prescriptions.
