Banfield employs talented paraprofessionals all over the country. Both veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants support our veterinarians in ensuring quality care for pets. Because credentialed veterinary technicians have the added responsibility of being the extra eyes and ears of our doctors, assisting in surgery and performing procedures as their state’s veterinary practice allows, they enjoy an increased salary.
Many people on our veterinary health care team move into hospital leadership positions like lead veterinary technician or practice manager. Others provide regional support as field trainers, or come to our headquarters to work on medical advancement initiatives.
