Veterinary Assistant

Veterinary Assistants help veterinarians and veterinary technicians care for animals while working closely with their owners. The job requires lifting and holding animals, some office skills, clinical procedures, record-keeping, and more. The work setting may be in animal hospitals, clinics, and research labs. They may also be employed in animal shelters, and in some cases, pet stores. The program can be used as a stepping stone into the veterinary field.

Veterinary Assistants

This 202 hour program will prepare students for the duties of a veterinary assistant. Specific duties vary from practice to practice and the Veterinary Assistant is often responsible for:

  • Feeding and watering animals
  • Sterilizing lab and surgical equipment
  • Providing post-operative care
  • Administering medications
  • Preparing samples for lab examination
  • Working closely with Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians

This 2 course program satisfies the 200 hours needed to begin the path of a Certified Veterinary Assistant Level 1 (CVA1) for the Texas Veterinary Medicine Association (TVMA). The program includes 90 hours of classroom instruction in Veterinary Technology and a 112 hour Clinical Lab course. The Clinical Lab course will build the skills training and hands-on practical experience in a veterinary hospital off campus. Clinical labs will include shelter time.

Prerequisites: It is necessary you pass the ACC CEWD Healthcare physical and be current with immunizations. Print the  CEWD Healthcare Application
