It’s National Veterinary Technician Week! We like to take this annual opportunity to say THANK YOU to our entire technician team. They are a keystone of the hands-on care your pet receives at Blue Cross Animal Hospital. Caring for your dog or cat in hospital, they dispense medication, take x-rays, run our in-house lab, do laser therapy, and prepare for and assist in surgery and dentistry. They can teach you any of the many care techniques you can use at home, such as cleaning ears, clipping nails, or giving pills, insulin or subcutaneous fluids. They can even advise on the best way to get your cat into the carrier!
Our team also provides comfort, cuddling and care to each and every pet in hospital for treatment, illness or surgery. Their jobs are emotionally and physically demanding, but they always treat each pet with the skill and compassion you want for your family.
The RVTs and veterinary assistants at Blue Cross Animal Hospital are phenomenally devoted to their profession and to the cats and dogs in our care. Andria, Yvonne, Nejra, Elaine, and newcomers Taralee, Ashley and Meghan, we appreciate you all every day, but this week you get a special “Bark Out”: Happy Vet Tech Week!
