Veterinary Technician Earnings


The median annual wage for veterinary technologists and technicians was $30,290 in May 2012. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $21,030, and the top 10 percent earned more than $44,030.

In May 2012, the median annual wages for veterinary technologists and technicians in the top three industries employing these workers were as follows:

Colleges, universities, and professional schools; state: $37,190
Research and development in the physical, engineering, and life sciences: $35,810
Veterinary services: $29,920

Veterinary technologists and technicians working in research positions often earn more than those in other fields. Many clinics and laboratories must be staffed 24 hours a day, so veterinary technologists and technicians may have to work evenings, weekends, or holidays. Many technicians have variable schedules, and some must work 7 days a week
