Animal healthcare offers career options at multiple education levels, from on-the-job training for the veterinarian assistant to a doctoral degree for the veterinarian. As technology has increased and the number of companion animals or pets has increased, the careers available in animal health have expanded. There is an increasing need for individuals to assist in areas that require both knowledge of science and animals. Three levels of animal healthcare careers are recognized currently: veterinary assistants, veterinary technicians and veterinarians.
