National Vet Tech Week

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) recognized that fact and 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 17-23 to be National Vet Tech Week 2021. 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.

“This year’s NVTW theme focuses on the critical aspect of self-care,” said Ed Carlson, CVT, VTS (Nutrition), President of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians (NAVTA), the not-for-profit association behind National Veterinary Technician Week. “Veterinary Technicians and their colleagues have worked incredibly hard over the past 18 months, handling a workload and stress level never seen before. It is critically important that NAVTA emphasize the importance of self-care and a healthy work-life balance.”

NAVTA is a nonprofit organization that represents and promotes the veterinary nurses/technicians profession. NAVTA provides direction, education, support and coordination for its members. Incorporated in 1981, NAVTA is the national organization devoted exclusively to developing and enhancing the profession of veterinary nursing/technology. Pets give us unconditional love and veterinary nurses/technicians provide TLC to pets and animals.

Thinking of becoming a Vet Tech? The veterinary technician is an integral member of the veterinary health care team. Veterinary technicians have been educated in the care and handling of animals, the basic principles of normal and abnormal life processes, and in many laboratory and clinical procedures. An obvious resource is the NAVTA. However, another great resource is the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Foundation). You can find lots of information on what being a vet tech is like and what it takes to get started in the career.

Celebrate National Vet Tech Week by helping us recognize our team members providing veterinary care to the cats and dogs that come to our clinic.
