As a veterinary technologist, you could work with veterinary specialists in a veterinary referral hospital, or with government and private organisations to help maintain and protect the health and welfare of wildlife, as well as exotic, companion, and production animals.
There is also a high demand for the skills you gain in the areas of public health and food safety.
Veterinary technologists work with pathologists, as animal behaviourists, production animal consultants, and senior advisers in regulatory industry bodies. The study of veterinary technology will teach you how to be relevant to contemporary veterinary practice.
