October 14-20 will mark Veterinary Technician Week, providing veterinary technicians the opportunity to promote their profession to the public and colleagues. This year's theme, "Veterinary Technicians Speak the Language," will focus on the ability veterinary technicians have to communicate with their animal patients.
National Veterinary Technician Week is celebrated annually to recognize veterinary technicians nationwide for their contributions as members of the veterinary health care team.
Clinics and animal hospitals are encouraged educate the public by advertising the week with special posters, available through the North American Veterinary Technician Association, and to personally thank veterinary technicians for everything they do.
