We are celebrating all of our technicians and assistants this week for National Veterinary Technician Week! Last year, I wrote an article about the credentials and skills our LVTs possess. This year, I'd like to focus on the other half of our patient care support team, our amazing assistants!
In our hospital, a technician's assistant's primary role is to keep the day running smoothly by helping our veterinarians and technicians wherever needed. You'll often find our assistants checking in appointments, restraining patients, preparing lab samples and vaccinations, and keeping our hospital ship-shape!
We're also honoring our hard-working groomer's assistants this week. These ladies pamper the dogs and cats visiting Teri for their spa day by helping with walking, bathing, brushing, drying, trimming nails, and cleaning ears. They also are in charge of keeping the groom room tidy and tackling all that pet hair!
A big thanks to all of our assistants - Erin, Mary, Vyonne, and Michelle - we couldn't do it without you!
