National Veterinary Technician Week has been an annual National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) tradition beginning in 1993. The annual event 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 is sponsoring the week-long celebration.
The activities serve these fundamental goals:
-Educate the public about veterinary technicians and what we do.
-Reinforce the value and professionalism of veterinary technicians.
-Provide an opportunity for veterinary technicians to encourage one another for excellent work ethic and team building.
-Acknowledge our quality relationship with veterinarians and other veterinary professionals.
