Certified Vet Assistants in Missouri
At The Academy of Pet Careers, we educate all our vet assistance to use force-free, positive reinforcement-based methods. Our students learn to acclimate pets to examinations slowly and without extreme restraint. Using these methods, APC-educated vet assistants keep their clients happy, healthy, and comfortable.
Classroom & Hands-On Experience
Our students receive an in-depth education including both classroom and hands-on experience. By the time they graduate, our students will have learned how to and demonstrated proficiency in…
- Providing for the husbandry needs for animals in the clinic or hospital’s care.
- Assisting veterinarians in exams, surgeries, and other procedures.
- Taking patients’ vitals, administer medication, and care for hospitalized animals.
- Communicating with pet owners about their animals’ needs and health concerns.
There is no school for vet assistants in Missouri more dedicated to preparing their students for their careers.

At The Academy of Pet Careers, all of our students and instructors take the Pet Empowerment Pledge. In doing so, they promise to…
- Practice The Safe Handling of Pets.
- Treat Pets With Respect and Consider the Human-Pet Bond.
- Give Pets A Choice, So Long as They Are Safe.
- Promote Confidence and Independence in pets.

- Prevent And Minimize Fear, Anxiety, And Stress in Pets.

We believe in treating pets not as property but as members of the family. When you choose an APC-educated groomer, you can be sure they are keeping your pet’s best interests in mind.
