Alexandria, Virginia (Vocus) September 29, 2009
Pets are important members for many families, yet they sometimes don't receive the proper care they deserve from a certified veterinary technician. Veterinary 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, patients, and owners to provide the essential link with all involved in the care process.
The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, Inc. (NAVTA) has proclaimed the third week of each October to be National Veterinary Technician Week. This annual event, being held October 11-17, 2009, recognizes veterinary technicians for their contributions in pet healthcare, as well as veterinarians, assistants, practice managers and others involved in this care. This year, Hill's Pet Nutrition, a company dedicated to helping pets reach their full potential through quality nutrition and healthcare, is sponsoring the week-long celebration.
NAVTA is a nonprofit organization that represents and promotes the veterinary technician 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 technology. Pets give us unconditional love and veterinary technicians give us peace of mind. For this reason they should be celebrated during National Veterinary Technician Week. More information about NAVTA and this special week can be found at http://www.navta.net.
