Let's Celebrate Veterinary Technicians This Week!
Tuesday, October 15, 2019
National Veterinary Technician Week
October 13-19, 2019
Veterinary technicians are critical to the day-to-day function of veterinary practices, and play vital roles in preserving animal health and welfare. The month of October provides an opportunity to recognize veterinary technicians’ contributions.
First celebrated in 1993, this year’s theme is “Veterinary Nursing in Action.” The theme speaks to the diversity technicians experience and animals they treat in the veterinary profession. In the training credentialed veterinary technicians receive, they must show proficiency and care of all species; with feathers, fur, scales, and skin.
The Arizona Veterinary Medical Association & Veterinary Health Care Team of Arizona honors technicians for their value every day of the year and thank them for all they do. We honor their commitment to compassionate, high-quality veterinary care for all animals. Please join us in celebrating these important team members.
