When I used to teach in the UK it was quite strange that many of the children wanted to work with animals and be part of the veterinary services. The reason this though came up was I found a site that has a comprehensive list of veterinary technician jobs that come with a local twist. You just enter where about you live and it will show you all these types of jobs in your area.
If any of my old pupils are reading this and you still want to work with veterinaries, give this site a read there may be jobs there that are suitable for you. This of course applies to anyone else who want to work in this area.
