In Spain, there are around 5,300 veterinary centers and more than 20 million domestic animals. For this reason, professions related to the veterinary area and animal care are being increasingly in demand. One of these professional profiles is that of a veterinary assistant, in charge of helping the veterinarian during consultations and surgical interventions.
To practice in this profession, it is necessary to have adequate training that facilitates theoretical knowledge about the anatomy of animals. In the same way, it must provide the student with the practical skills and techniques that are used in the operating room or in the veterinary clinic.
In this sense, VetFormación is presented as a successful option, since it has veterinary assistant courses, in face-to-face and semi-face-to-face modality. In addition, students can choose the type of training that best suits their lifestyle.
What type of veterinary assistant courses to choose?
More than 700 veterinary clinics around Spain collaborate with VetFormación to train future veterinary assistants. This school makes its courses available in two modalities: face-to-face and blended training.
In the case of face-to-face, the student will be able to see theoretical classes in the location of their choice and the knowledge can be strengthened with 500 practical hours in a veterinary hospital. This training modality is ideal for those people who do not have difficulties attending classes at the defined time and place. In addition, an advantage that it presents is that the participants will be able to be in direct contact with the teacher to ask questions and resolve any doubts they may have.

Students will be able to access theoretical information online, at their own pace, from anywhere and at any time. And, to consolidate what they have learned, they will be able to take 300 practical hours at the veterinary clinic of their choice within the collaborating centers.
Some functions of the veterinary assistant
The function of a veterinary assistant is mainly focused on providing assistance to the veterinarian at all times, either during the intervention or preparing the necessary materials and instruments for it. He must also be able to carry out general check-ups on the animals, collect biological samples and perform cures. Another aspect that they can take care of is the responsibility for the care of hospitalized patients, as well as the management and administration of veterinary centers.
