Also in school to be a vet tech. At my previous job, I was more or less a vet assistant, as well. I'd say the hardest part, whether working with large or small animals, is when you put an animal down. I would imagine working for the ASPCA wouldn't be too enjoyable, either. But I tend to like work that pays off, working with my hands, etc. so I think being a vet tech will be just fine for me.
I know in my area of Florida, the best program is the college on the other side of the bay (St. Petersburg College). They have a two year program, as well as a four year bachelors program.
