Salaries for veterinary assistants
Salaries for veterinary assistants depend of course on the standard of living in each country studied. Because of this, it is interesting to take into account also the legal minimum wage.
Analysis of the above chart shows that Denmark, France and Finland have the highest salaries for their veterinary assistants with 2 826 , 1 505 and 1 341 respectively. The United Kingdom, with almost 1 000 /month can also be added to this first group of countries.
In the other countries (Eastern countries, Portugal and Spain), salaries for qualified assistants remains low, below 600 even though it is around one and a half times the legal minimum wage.
In conclusion, salaries for qualified assistants are high in the first fifteen countries in the EU relative to their legal minimum wages. However, salaries remain low, below 500 in the new member countries including Portugal.
