Job Outlook

The need for veterinary assistants will continue to grow as pet ownership in the U.S. is on the rise. Animal safety as well as responsible pet ownership has contributed to this increased demand. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the number of veterinary assistant jobs is expected to grow up to 19% by 2026, much faster than the average career.

According to the 2016-2017 Occupational Outlook Handbook, a veterinary assistant salary could be upwards of $37,810 annually, with the middle 50% earning as high as $25,250. Many factors are considered when calculating a vet assistant salary such as location, type of facility, education level and years of experience. Research facilities usually pay higher salaries than clinical or hospital settings.

Student Testimonial

‚ÄúI wanted to take some time to thank you, and Blackstone Career Institute for providing me with the knowledge to pursue my dream career working with animals. The program was very informative and simple to navigate. I loved being able to work at my own pace and feel as though I controlled my education. Anytime I needed assistance the staff members at Blackstone were more than eager to help, and always returned my phone calls/e-mails. As I progressed through each unit in my Veterinary Assistant program, I felt more and more knowledgeable on the trade, and was excited to move forward and see what the next unit had in store.
