Veterinary surgical technicians are qualified to assist veterinarians with a variety of surgical procedures. Daily duties may include tasks like performing pre-surgical diagnostic lab tests, preparing and scrubbing surgical sites for sterile procedures, assisting the veterinarian during surgeries, handing out necessary surgical tools during procedures, bandaging wounds, changing wound dressings as needed, placing catheters, and taking radio-graphs or x-rays.
Other duties may include operating and maintaining surgical equipment, administering fluids, giving intravenous or intramuscular injections, drawing blood, updating patient charts, filling prescriptions, assisting with regular exams when no surgeries are scheduled, and advising pet owners on post-operative care and medication dosages.
Vet techs — including surgical vet techs — may be required to work weekends depending on the schedules of the surgeon. They must also be aware of the risks inherent in working with animals and take proper safety precautions to minimize the potential for injury from bites, scratches or kicks.
