SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi dvmjakish, I am also a vet in the process of getting my license and I am trying to work as a vet tech. How can you work as a technician without having a tech degree? The law in the state that I am at, says that you cannot work as a tech without having completed an aproved program of vet technology. And plus, the animal shelter here doesn't have a full time vet and they don't even perform spays there, they send them out. Looking forward to hear from you! Thanks!
