As beloved four legged friends, pets are beloved members of our family, and often a top priority. The same should be for their healthcare. The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, Inc., (NAVTA) has proclaimed Oct. 14 to 20, 2012, to be the 20th annual National Veterinary Technician Week. Since 1993, this annual event recognizes veterinary technicians for their contributions in pet healthcare, as well as veterinarians, assistants, practice managers and others involved in this care.
Technicians are an integral part of the pet healthcare team, and play an important role in veterinary care, to both the client and their pets,” said Catherine Holly, CVT, president of NAVTA. “It’s important that we take the time to celebrate technicians. Not only do they provide top-notch care to our pets, but also put in long hours as researchers, and are oftentimes specialized. We just want people to know how valuable technicians actually are.”
At AMC, we love out Certified Veterinary Technicians Jane, Cammie, Melanie, Tracey, Regan and Brandi. As members of our veterinary healthcare team, our veterinary technicians are educated in the latest medical advances and skilled at working alongside our veterinarians to give pets the best medical care possible. They are very dedicated and they really care about our clients and their pets.
