Did you realize that, besides your veterinarian, there is another important member of your pet’s health care team that does a lot of the behind-the-scenes work? Veterinary technicians are an integral part of your pet’s care, and they deserve to be recognized.
The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) has proclaimed the third week in October to be National Veterinary Technician Week, and we are proud to celebrate this week.
“Technicians are an integral part of the veterinary healthcare team, and celebrating National Veterinary Technician Week gives them the credit they deserve. It also provides an opportunity to teach the public about what veterinary technicians do on a daily basis,” said Sandy Sponaugle, NAVTA Communications Director.
This week helps us to recognize veterinary technicians for their contributions in pet healthcare.
What is a vet tech?
Veterinary technicians are highly trained and dedicated members of the veterinary team. Having completed a degree in veterinary technology as well as passing a national board examination and maintaining continuing education requirements, vet techs are also very educated.
What does a vet tech do?
We consider our veterinary technicians to be the backbone of our practice. They are a huge part of providing the best care possible to your pets. They are responsible for the care and nursing of sick or injured patients, performing laboratory testing, taking radiographs (X-rays), assisting with anesthesia, administering medications and therapies to patients, and performing dental cleanings. They are also hugely involved in the education of pet owners on various topics.
Needless to say, our veterinary technicians play a tremendous role in the day-to-day functioning of our veterinary practice. They are an essential part of keeping the hospital running smoothly and are very important in caring for the pets that enter our doors.
