Hey all. I've had a lifelong love for animals, and though I work in a research lab right now and make decent pay, I long to work at a vet hospital.
I've been thinking about going back to school to work as a vet tech! I'm getting married soon, and my fiancee has great benefits. However, we have been talking about having a family someday, and I always have the thought in the back of my mind, what would happen if he loses his job? What would happen if we don't have health insurance from his employment anymore?
I know that techs don't make much, and this isn't an issue for us. However, how is the benefits situation for you vet techs out there? Do techs typically have access to a decent health plan, 401k, etc? I'd love to hear from all of you about the benefits techs typically receive at different types of practices or employment.
