Tech Salaries up 32% in the past 6 years!

We all want a job we love.  This typically means a great team that cares about proper treatment, an up-to-date hospital, and a schedule that gives us time to do other things besides just work.  It also means having a good salary.  Nobody likes to talk about money, especially in the veterinarian world where the care for the animal comes first, but lets be honest – a good salary is crucial to enjoying your job and allowing you to stay at a hospital for a long time.

Fortunately for veterinary technicians, salaries have been on the rise the past few years.  Salaries of course vary widely by state, by experience, and by expertise, but overall tech salaries have gone up 32% over the past 6 years!  That is a great increase!

I still don’t thing techs are paid as much as they deserve but at least things are heading in the right direction!
