The popularity and demand nationwide of veterinarians and trained staff have caused the industry to reach out to the high school career and technical schools to allow students the experience and under-standing of the veterinary field. Thus, Ms. Vanhorn began creating a high school–based veterinary assistant pro-gram to allow students the experience of and a basic introduction to the world of veterinary medicine.
On developing the program, Vanhorn found that the majority of veterinary-related educational materials and text books were written at a college-to-post secondary level. In an effort to allow secondary students to understand and learn about veterinary assisting as a career opportunity, this textbook was created for veterinary assistant students and as a resource for practicing veterinary assistants, veterinary receptionists, hospital managers, and technicians.
