Hill’s Pet Nutrition To Sponsor National Veterinary Technician Week

NEW ORLEANS – Your pet deserves the best in pet care and it takes everyone on the veterinary health care team to make that happen.

         The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) recognized that fact and created National Veterinary Technician Week (NAVTW), from October 11-17, 2015.

         As a member of the veterinary healthcare team, veterinary technicians are educated in the latest medical advances and skilled at working alongside veterinarians to give pets the best medical care possible. They work closely with the veterinarians, veterinary assistants, practice managers and owners to provide essential care to all species of animals; pets with fur, feathers or scales.
