Veterinary Technician Week

Happy Veterinary Technician Week to all of our Vet Tech students.

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA)  created National Veterinary Technician Week (NVTW). As a member of the veterinary healthcare team, veterinary nurses/technicians are educated in the latest medical advances and skilled at working alongside veterinarians to give pets the best medical care possible.

They work closely with the veterinarians, veterinary assistants, practice managers, and owners to provide essential care to all species of animals; pets with fur, feathers, scales or skin.

NAVTA has proclaimed October 14-20, 2018 to be National Veterinary Technician Week. This annual event recognizes veterinary nurses/technicians for their contributions in pet healthcare, as well as veterinarians, assistants, practice managers and others involved in pet care.

Here at the Brecksville Campus, we will be doing the following to participate in this recognition week for Veterinary technicians:
