National Veterinary Technician Week
The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, Inc. (NAVTA), has proclaimed October 15-21, 2006, as National Veterinary Technician Week. The event is celebrated annually to recognize veterinary technicians for their contributions to the animal health care team.
“We CARE!” is the theme for this year’s NVTW activities bringing to the forefront, the very nature of this caring profession. Events scheduled nationally will focus on increasing awareness of the veterinary technician’s role. Primary responsibilities on the animal health care team include nursing care, administering medication, assisting in surgery, taking x-rays, inducing and monitoring of anesthesia, hospital management, and laboratory testing all done conscientiously with the patient in mind. “We CARE!”
