Celebrating Veterinary Technicians

By Amanda Esposito |

The year 2020 and the onset of COVID-19 have brought about unprecedented changes and challenges for the entire veterinary community. Putting their own health on the line, veterinarians, veterinary technicians and veterinary support staff have continued to operate under stressful conditions to ensure that their patients are well cared for and remain in good health. 

We would like to celebrate all of the amazing veterinary technicians who have endured, despite all of the challenges they have faced this year. They have worked tirelessly, oftentimes only able to communicate with their clients via telephone or as they quickly transport a patient from the parking lot into the clinic; wearing PPE for extended periods of time; protecting the safety of their clients, their team and themselves by maintaining social distance and sanitizing themselves and their environment continuously. Depending on state restrictions, some clinics are understaffed, and yet veterinary technicians show up. They have been exhausted, both physically and emotionally, and yet they will show up again tomorrow. They have dealt with more than their fair share of anger, anxiety, and grief from frustrated clients, and yet they are still there. Day after day, week after week, our veterinary technicians have and will continue to remain steadfast and we cannot possibly thank them enough. 

Veterinary technicians have always gone out of their way to make their clients and patients feel important, safe and loved. This year, they have gone the extra mile and beyond. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you to all of the highly skilled, compassionate, self-sacrificing veterinary technicians that we are privileged to work with every day. Thank you for all that you do to make the veterinary world a better place.
