Celebrating National Veterinary Technician Week 2020

October 11-17, 2020

This week has been set aside to celebrate, recognize, and promote the valuable contributions you, as credentialed veterinary technicians, make to the veterinary profession and society. 

Veterinary technicians are integral players on the veterinary healthcare team.  You are on the frontlines, compassionately working with clients whose beloved animals need care.  You work tirelessly in exam rooms, labs, and operating rooms, putting to work your vast technical and scientific knowledge treating and caring for every species of animal.  Your broad skills – both professional and personal – allow veterinarians to work more efficiently and effectively.  And you do it all with love and a smile, day after day. 

And this year you’ve been put to the test like never before.  Deemed essential personnel, you went to work every day, exposing yourself to the possibility of contracting a virus that has no cure.  

This year, more than ever, we are proud to salute and celebrate you, the Veterinary Technicians in America!
