What can a relief vet or tech get paid?

click to view our 2022 survey data on pay rates

Over 500 vets and over 100 techs responded to our 2022 survey about relief rates.

Important notes:

  • We specifically did not ask members what they charge themselves. We know people can be shy about disclosing that info, so we focused on their understanding of typical rates.
  • Participants were permitted to respond for multiple states, as relief professionals may work in multiple states.

We have so much information on this that it’s impossible to organize it neatly on this page.

So we organized a multi-page document covering Delaware Prescription Drug Monitoring Protocols (PDMP), prescriptions and dispensing, telemedicine, Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationships (VCPR), and permits.

We also include additional information on veterinary professional licensing, state licensing, recordkeeping, permits, and continuing education.

We can help you live your veterinary dreams.

Vets and techs, it’s free for you to join Relief Rover.

You want the freedom, joy, adventure, and passion that you imagined when you joined our profession. Let us help you get there!

Our mission is to empower relief veterinarians and technicians and to improve quality of life throughout the veterinary profession. (“Relief” means freelance. You can do relief work on the side or as your main source of income. Many vets use relief work to test drive clinics until they find one to call home… Others live a true relief lifestyle and never settle down.)

By the way, we’re not an employer or a staffing agency of any kind. We’re simply a platform that you can use kind of like a Swiss army knife to build your relief business. We have so many tools to help you along your journey, including access to jobs, community, support, resources, education, discounts, and more.

Employers, you can enjoy all-inclusive membership for a low subscription fee — that gives you the privilege to connect with our thousands of relief professionals across the United States.
