Practice Information Meet Our Team Registered Veterinary Technicians

Registered Veterinary Technicians

139Hospitals have nurses.  Veterinary hospitals have veterinary technicians, sometimes shortened to "techs".  A Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) has completed a focused course of study, and graduated from an accredited school, with an Associate of Science Degree in Veterinary Technology.  Following graduation, the student must pass a state board, only then do they receive the title of Registered Veterinary Technician.

In addition to patient care, technicians are also educated in radiology, critical care, laboratory procedures, post-operative care, dentistry and anesthesia just to name a few.

We are proud to have some of the best technicians in the area.  Our technicans have worked with us for many years, and are encouraged to pursue their special interests, and attend continuing education.  In this way our patients get the bestcare possible.
