If so, visit our Facebook page any time during the week and tell us why, in words, pictures, video—whatever it takes to tell the world why your vet tech deserves the first prize of a $500 gift card. Three other vet techs will receive "Runner-up" gift cards for $100.

About National Veterinary Technician Week

Pets are important members of many families, yet they sometimes don’t receive the care they deserve. Veterinary technicians are educated in the latest medical advances and skilled at working alongside veterinarians to give pets the best medical care possible. If compared to human medicine, veterinary technicians perform the roles of many different human-health professionals, all wrapped up into one extraordinary, compassionate person working with many different species. They are key to the veterinary healthcare team delivering the best possible care. Survey after survey shows that most people don't know what a veterinary technician does. We do and want to help celebrate the people in this very special profession.

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, Inc. (NAVTA) has proclaimed October 12- 18, 2014 to be National Veterinary Technician Week. This annual event recognizes veterinary technicians for their contributions to the best possible care for all animals. 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 www.navta.net.
