National Veterinary Technician Week is October 17th – 23rd
The work of a veterinary technicianoften times goes unnoticed, even though a veterinary hospital could not function properly without them. That is why, every year during the third week of October, veterinary technicians are celebrated nationally to honor and recognize all of the hard work they do on a daily basis to ensure the health and wellbeing of our pets! The National Association of Veterinary Technicians (NAVTA) explains that, “Veterinary Technicians are integral players on the veterinary healthcare team. They are on the front-lines, compassionately working with clients whose beloved animals need care. They work tirelessly in exam rooms, labs, and operating rooms, putting to work their vast technical and scientific knowledge treating and caring for every species of animal. Their broad skills – both professional and personal – allow veterinarians to work more efficiently and effectively. And they do it all with love and a smile, day after day.”

Our lobby is OPEN! But, we’re still practicing curbside-care for those who wish to remain outside. Even though our lobby is open, we are still asking everyone arriving for an appointment to call us from outside so we can get you checked in. Our waiting room is small, so calling from outside allows us to cycle people through at reduced numbers. Masks are REQUIRED by ALL who enter, regardless of your COVID vaccine status.
Please be aware that our wait times continue to be longer than normal. Please bring something to entertain yourself with while you wait outside; you are NOT allowed to leave the parking lot unless you’re scheduled for that type of appointment. Use the time outside to download our new PetDesk app and join our Loyalty Program.
Have a happy and safe Halloween! Remember to keep candy away from your pets!
