Veterinarian Technician September 2008 (Vol 29, No 9)

National Veterinary Technician Week October 12-18, 2008

by Jaana Harmoinen, Jean Cao, BSc, MSc, Thomas Gore, PhD

    The Heart of Pet Wellness

    The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) will celebrate the importance of veterinary technicians during National Veterinary Technician Week (NVTW), October 12-18, 2008. By observing NVTW, which is themed "Vet Techs: The Heart of Pet Wellness," NAVTA aims to raise public awareness of the crucial role that technicians play in the care of animals.

    "National Veterinary Technician Week is an opportunity to honor veterinary technicians for the outstanding job they do. It also is an opportunity to educate companion animal owners about the benefits of working with a veterinarian who employs credentialed veterinary technicians," stated Andrea Ball, executive director of NAVTA. "When you invest in medical treatment for your pet, you should receive the best care possible, and credentialed veterinary technicians help ensure this happens."

    To help NAVTA promote NVTW, Fort Dodge Animal Health sponsored a poster campaign. More information about NAVTA can be found at http://www.navta.net/.

    How do you celebrate NVTW? Send your suggestions to edonovan@vetlearn.com, and you may see it in the next issue of TechTalk!
