October 15-21, 2017 is National Veterinary Technician Week

National Veterinary Technician Week

VetCor has over 1,300 technicians, and we would like to take a moment recognize them this National Veterinary Technician Week for all their hard work and dedication!

Here are just some of the reasons why we love vet techs:

  1. They get their hands dirty – figuratively and literally – and get the hard work done every day to ensure the health and wellbeing of patients in their care.
  2. They are strong. Not only can they wrangle large and fractious pets, but they also provide warm hugs and kind words during some of the most emotional moments of a pet parent’s life!
  3. Vet techs are team players. Without their help, veterinarians couldn’t do their jobs. But their work doesn’t stop there – you will frequently see a tech answering phones or stepping up to help other teams in their practice when needed.
  4. They’re smart cookies! Did you know that vet techs are required to learn about the anatomy of many animals, even if their practice doesn’t treat them? They need to be quick and think on their feet, learn new tricks on the job, and often take courses and exams to continue their education.
  5. They are passionate about pets. Whether it’s a dog, a cat, a hamster or snake, vet techs are animal lovers, and provide compassionate care to every pet that they see.

Each day, our technicians help our practices to provide quality care, compassionate medicine, and tailored client education to ensure all of our pets live long and happy lives. Please join us in thanking them for all that they do!
