Veterinarians do not have record keeping like is done in the human medical field. In the Veterinary field records are managed mainly by the vets and vet techs and in small ways by the receptionist. Many of the smaller vets offices will hire receptionists with much or even any experience so that they can train them personally. If you have any customer service experience then you could see if any of your local vets are hiring. If none are hiring they may be looking for volunteers which would at the least get your foot in the door and let you begin seeing how things work.

The other options would be to take a Vet assistant course online or even start taking online courses for Veterinary Technician. Many of the Technician courses will allow the first year or two online but they will require that you find a clinic to do hands on work as well.
