Veterinarian Alan Green says veterinary technicians provide reliable, personal and excellent care for patients and are an indispensable resource for veterinarians. Although not all states have standards in place for veterinary technician training and certification, most clinics employ trained and certified technicians, according to Dr. Green. "Most veterinary technicians are incredibly dedicated and hard working professionals. These individuals are often the closest to the patients and feel the emotional ups and downs that occur on a daily basis," Dr. Green writes.
