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. They act as nurses, surgical assistants, anesthetists, X-ray technicians, dental hygienists, grief counselors, and also wear about a dozen more hats every day. To say that these hard-working professionals excel at multi-tasking is an understatement.

Certified veterinary technicians are educated, trained, and tested on their skills in order to support our veterinarians. To maintain certification, they must continue to take classes throughout their career. This is a big commitment – but all of our veterinary technicians strive to provide the highest standard of patient care.

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

Here at Westfield, we love and appreciate all our veterinary technicians because of the crucial role they play at our practice. Every one of our vet techs provide the highest level of care when preserving the health and welfare of our pet patients. Please join us in thanking them for the valuable work they do by sharing images and stories of your favorite vet tech on our Facebook page. Let them know how much you love them and how you appreciate the care they provide to your fur baby. We cannot wait to hear from you!
