What does a vet assistant do?

Veterinary assistant

Veterinary Assistants often manage the day-to-day operations of a veterinary clinic, providing both customer assistance and patient care as part of their everyday duties.

Will I get to practice with hands-on training?

As with all courses at Oulton College, we make sure you have lots of time to practice the skills taught in the classroom. You’ll have a chance to put your knowledge to the test on sit at our Veterinary Clinic, learn to be comfortable working in a laboratory, and also take part in a four week practicum placement in a veterinary clinic. Our program will provide you with the hands-on training you require to work with Veterinary Technicians and Veterinarians.

What will I learn?

In addition to skills development, you will also learn how to manage the day-to-day operations of a veterinary clinic.

Term:September – June

Practicum:4 weeks
