My goal is to work as a Veterinary Assistant by doing on the job training. I would consider volunteering my time to gain the experience.
In a Resume do I tell them I am looking for an on the job training position or just tell them i would like to volunteer? Or do i mention both?
And, do I send a cover letter or just a Resume?

As of January of this year, you have to attend college and get your degree in order to become a vet tech. By law they are no longer allowed to train you in the office.

There is a difference between a veterinary technician and a veterinary assistant. No state in the US has education or training requirements to work as a veterinary assistant.

Many hospitals do not like accepting volunteers because of insurance reasons. I would consider joining the Pierce college pre vet or technician program in woodland hills ca. From their you can take their 181 class which will give you insurance. They also normally have hospitals that you can volunteer at to get experience. I hope this helps.

Different states have different laws, rules and regulations. Here in California a non licensed tech can do almost everything a licensed technician can do. I know one of my best technicians moved to Arizona a few years ago and when I talked to him he was upset because hew was not allowed to do anything at the hospital he was working at.
