Throughout history, the horse has played an important part in the progress of mankind. Transportation, a work partner, and, unfortunately, a war resource, we have relied heavily on the horse to help us achieve our goals. Today the horse has been replaced by the car as primary transportation, by motorized equipment on the farm and they are seldom used now in warfare. Yet mankind's fascination with, and love for, the horse is still strong.
Veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants play an important role in the delivery of quality medical services in both mixed and equine practices.
