National Veterinary Technician Week

This week, we recognize and celebrate those kind people that help out us and our pets while we wait for our veterinarian to make the final diagnosis. It’s National Veterinary Technician Week!

Vet techs wear many hats and work with receptionists, pet owners, veterinarians, and our pets. They handle many important tasks such as taking X-rays, weighing our pets, giving medications, assist with surgery, and assist in examination rooms. We’ve got a few ex-veterinary technicians working here at Trupanion and we will be sure to thank them for all their hard work.

If you’re making a visit to the vet this week (we hope it’s just for a check-up!) then extend a special thanks to your veterinary technician for taking such great care of your pet.

    Being a vet it is a tricky task mutually managing the requirements of business and the animal you’re caring for.
