Veterinary Assistant vs Veterinary Technician?

I'm going for a job interview tomorrow for a Veterinary assistant but I'm not to sure on what this job entails. What exactly is the difference between a Vet assistant and a Vet Tech?? About how much on average is a Vet assistant paid?? Any information on being a Veterinary Assistant will be graciously appreciated. show more I'm going for a job interview tomorrow for a Veterinary assistant but I'm not to sure on what this job entails.

Update: I live in New Orleans Louisiana and the hospital I'm going to the interview for is pretty upscale and high tech.
Update 2: What do you do as a vet assistant?? pick up poop help with examines??
