Your pet 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 created National Veterinary Technician Week (NAVTW). As a member of the veterinary healthcare team, Veterinary 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 11-17, 2015 to be National Veterinary Technician Week. This annual event recognizes veterinary technicians for their contributions in pet healthcare, as well as veterinarians, assistants, practice managers and others involved in pet care.
