Rose, a veterinary technician and leadership and career consultant,

and Smith, a veterinarian and career consultant, survey careers for

aspiring and practicing veterinary technicians, including positions in

general and specialty practice, industry, higher education, and

government. They describe the daily responsibilities, salaries,

qualifications, and pros and cons of careers working with traditional

and less traditional species, or jobs such as teaching, pet sitting and

grooming, wildlife rehabilitation, practice management, freelance

writing, research, inspection, and consulting, with advice from

technicians around the US. They also discuss technician programs, exams

and credentials, how to apply for jobs, and self-assessment. The book

uses the framework from Smith’s Career Choices for Veterinarians:

Beyond Private Practice.
