Vet techs are vital to our practice teams. They keep the gears turning at our practices, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that, every October, an entire week is dedicated to them.
This National Vet Tech Week (celebrated from 10/11 to 10/17), we’ll be engaging with our practice teams and vet techs on social media by talking about everything from what inspired them to enter the field to what the strangest animal they’ve treated is.
Over the years, we’ve compiled a list of the various ways our practices have celebrated National Vet Tech Week and we want to share them with you.
Here are a few ideas to experiment with at your practice:
Ask your clients to help you celebrate your vet techs. Introduce a different tech each day of the week (or all month long) on Facebook and include some fun facts about them.
Some post ideas include:
You can also call for your clients to give that vet tech a shout-out or ask them to post pictures of any pets they’ve cared for.
Find fun ways to show your vet techs how much you appreciate them. Throw a big party to celebrate National Vet Tech Week or celebrate in small ways throughout the entire week:
Food is a great way to show appreciation. There’s pizza, a hot dog bar, ice cream sundaes, a breakfast buffet, healthy snacks, and more. The list is truly endless.
Whatever you decide to do, share your pictures on social media. You’ll be able to get your clients involved and give them a better sense of what goes on behind the scenes at your practice - all while celebrating your veterinary technicians for all their hard work.
