Employment for veterinary technicians will grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Veterinary medicine is a field that is not adversely affected by the economy, so it does offer stability. The public's love for pets coupled with higher disposable incomes will encourage continued demand for workers in this occupation. There should be strong opportunities for veterinary technicians in clinics, animal hospitals, biomedical facilities, humane societies, animal control facilities, diagnostic laboratories, wildlife facilities, drug or food manufacturing companies, and food safety inspection facilities.
