Your pets deserve the best in pet care and it takes everyone on the veterinary health care team to make that happen.  The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) recognized that fact and established National Veterinary Technician Week (NVTW) as the third week in October.  We certainly value our technical team’s contributions every day, but that this particular week to celebrate their contributions to the health and well-being of our patients.

When you and your pet visit Family Pet Animal Hospital, we hope you have an immediate sense of who we are – we truly care about you and your pets and we love what we do.  We pride ourselves on the amazing team members we have that embrace and embody our core values:

  • Ethics
  • Professionalism
  • Empathy
  • Energy & Focus
  • Pride
  • Team Player

 

Veterinary technicians and assistants play a vital role in the care of all our patients (and our clients).  Their jobs are similar to that of nurses in human medicine – to perform technical tasks to support the doctors and provide comfort and support to the patient as well.  Our technicians are trained to provide nursing care, conduct diagnostic laboratory work, aid in medical, dental, and surgical procedures, administer anesthesia, and much more.  We could not do what we do without their talents.

Veterinary medicine and technology is always growing and changing and we strive to be on the cutting edge to provide your pet with the best care possible.  Our technicians’ commitment to continuing education allows us to support the addition and integration of new skills, protocols, and systems to our team because your pet deserves the very best.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to our amazing technicians.  We are so grateful for their tireless work, compassion, humor, and talents.  They are crucial to the delivery of the care we provide to the pets in our communication.  Thank you, Vet Techs, for everything that you do!

Happy National Veterinary Technician Week!
