Veterinary Technicians play a crucial role in Veterinary Hospitals. Working closely with the veterinarians, technicians are responsible for performing lab work, drawing blood samples, taking x-rays, assisting in surgery, monitoring patients under anesthesia, patient care, advising and educating pet owners on everything from nutrition to behaviour, scheduling appointments and more! To become a Veterinary Technician (sometimes called a Vet Nurse) one must complete a two to three-year Veterinary Technician program and then write and pass licensing exams that allow them to become a Registered Veterinary Technician or RVT.
Over the last few weeks, we have enjoyed have Veterinary Technician student Taylor Fedorowich for 160 hours of clinical placement. Taylor has completed two years of study at Georgian College in the Veterinary Technician program. She is now eligible to write her licensing exams which will enable her to be a full fledged RVT.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the time Taylor spent with us at Sault Ste. Marie Animal Clinic – she has a wonderful way with both people and pets, and we are certain she will be an asset to any team she is a part of in the future. We welcome her to the profession and wish her the best of luck in her career as a Registered Veterinary Technician!
Way to go Taylor!!
