Veterinary Pharmacist Job Description
Traditional pharmacists consult with physicians when prescribing medications to patients and veterinary pharmacists work with veterinarians, but many of the job responsibilities are the same. Veterinary pharmacists dispense, prepare, and even provide compound medications to animals in need. They take inventory and work with pharmacy technicians, just like any other pharmacist would.
Before becoming a veterinary pharmacist, there are several requirements you must complete first. After receiving an undergraduate degree, an aspiring veterinary pharmacist must attend an accredited pharmacy school to receive their PharmD. Some pharmacy schools even offer courses in veterinary pharmacy. Once a degree is obtained, the veterinary pharmacist needs to receive proper licensing and credentialing for the state they intend on practicing in.

However, they still assist in dispensing and preparing medications. Veterinary pharmacy technicians also aid in taking drug inventory, compounding medications, recording patient information, and providing excellent customer service to animal caretakers.
Veterinary Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Salary
The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not provide salary information specific to veterinary pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Veterinary pharmacists and VPTs can probably expect to make similar salaries as their counterparts working in traditional pharmacies.
