Paraveterinary staff are those individuals who assist a veterinary medical doctor in the performance of these duties, or perform animal health steps autonomously within a veterinary attention system. The work role varies across the world, and common headings include veterinary nurse, veterinary tech, veterinary associate and veterinary technologist, and variations with the prefix of ‘creature health’.
The range of practice varies between countries, with some countries allowing suitably certified paraveterinary personnel a opportunity of autonomous practice, including minimal surgery, whilst others limit their personnel to simple assisting of the vet.
