After 8 years of working as a veterinary surgical tech I finally qualified for my wildlife rehabber's permits and now I can do some stuff on my own in my home-based rescue, feeding tubes, sutures, blood draws,etc. without direct veterinary supervision. I have consulting vets come in weekly or more often for the stuff I can't handle on my own and to do general health checks, fecals, surgery, etc.

It takes a long time to convince the state and federal governments that you can provide basic care, though, and it would have been quicker, although not cheaper, to just go to vet school.
