What is the difference between a veterinarian (DVM) and a veterinary technician (VT)?

Both veterinarians and veterinary technicians work hand-in-hand to take care of our pets, but there are a few key distinctions between them including education and occupational responsibilities.

A vet (DVM) is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and a vet tech (VT) is a Veterinary Technician. Vetster only has registered technicians on our platform.
