School of Veterinary Technology

What is a Veterinary Technician?

If working with and helping care for animals has been a lifelong dream, let the Duluth Business University School of Veterinary Technology help make it your reality. Working as a Veterinary Technician means working with a diverse group of animals as the veterinarian’s right hand to perform lab tests, draw blood samples, provide nursing care to hospitalized patients, and administer anesthesia, among other duties. Working with a diverse mix of pets also means interacting with a diverse group of pet owners. DBU will train you to perform the technical tasks plus how to manage numerous administrative functions associated with this challenging and very rewarding career.

Because this is the only accredited program in the region, students come to Duluth from other communities to train for this highly sought after degree. Much of what makes the School of Veterinary Technology program so desirable is the amount of “hands-on” experience that students gain while in the program and during the clinical training. Class sizes for the Vet Tech program are kept small, which means students benefit both from the availability of maximum time in the lab and also more personalized attention from faculty.
