Who acts as a nurse, surgical assistant, anesthetist, x-ray technician, dental hygienist, grief counselor, and also wears about a dozen more hats? A veterinary technician, of course!

Veterinary technicians are a critical part of the veterinary care team here at Westfield Veterinary Group. They serve as the veterinarian’s right hand and are also responsible for interacting with our amazing clients. To say that these hard-working professionals excel at multi-tasking is an understatement.

And, not only do veterinary technicians need a multitude of specialized skills, but they need to have a thorough understanding of different species. That’s no small task at Westfield Veterinary Group since we also treat exotic pets!

National Veterinary Technician Week is October 11-17, 2020

National Veterinary Technician Week is being celebrated this year from October 11-17. This is the time to thank each and every vet tech for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year. Veterinary technicians are an important part of any veterinary care team and deserve to be recognized during their honorary week (and every week if you ask us!).
