At Pet Vet Animal Hospitals, we are very fortunate to have our great team of veterinary technicians, aka vet techs. However, if you’re one of our beloved customers, we don’t have to tell you that. They’re the friendly faces you see in the exam room first to provide the comfort your dog or cat needs to ease into the visit. (Several of their faces you’ve actually seen for more than 15 years!) They do so much, and with it being National Veterinary Technician Week, we want to recognize them for their everyday efforts.
Vet techs set the stage for our veterinarians to do their jobs. They ask questions, get vitals, take x-rays, and collect specimens to assist in getting to the root of an issue. They administer and monitor anesthesia and assist our doctors during procedures to help get your pet ok. They give scratches and hugs for anyone that may need them. In short, they do everything aside from making diagnoses, performing surgery, and prescribing meds – they do a lot for all of us.
Happy National Veterinary Technician Week to all of the vet techs out there, especially ours. You are family, and we appreciate all that you do to help keep our customers’ fur babies safe and healthy. We invite you to visit any of our four Pet Vet Animal Hospitals locations to experience the care of our wonderful vet techs.
