October is RVT Month!


Why we’re celebrating RVTs (all year round)

You may already know that when you visit your veterinarian, there’s a whole team of people who help look after your pet, from ensuring your pet is comfortable after a surgery, to pedicures, to providing advice on pet care and exercise.

Some of these people are Registered Veterinary Technologists/Technicians (RVTs) who work alongside veterinarians to provide patients with the highest quality of care to animals. RVTs are formally-educated professionals who meet rigorous standards of education and experience, including:

  • Anesthesia
  • Radiology
  • Laboratory work
  • Pharmacy technology
  • Continuing education requirements

Here at Liberty Village Animal Hospital, we rely on our vet tech, Jessica, to assist in surgical procedures and anesthesia, as well as radiography, prescribed treatment and nursing, and client education.

RVTs are an essential part of any great veterinary clinic or animal hospital – thanks for all you do!
