This year's theme is "Linking the Veterinary Healthcare Team," a great description of our role in the veterinary profession. We work closely with the veterinarians, veterinary assistants, practice managers, patients and their owners, providing an essential link with all involved in the care process. As the national association representing veterinary technicians, NAVTA realizes that a true celebration of National Veterinary Technician Week relies on participation of state associations, student chapters, and our members. The 2009 National Veterinary Technician Week is sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition, as part of their commitment to pet health and nutrition.
Our annual celebration began in June 1993, when NAVTA's Executive Board passed a resolution declaring the third week of October as National Veterinary Technician Week (NVTW). During this special week, veterinary technicians can focus favorable attention on their profession through a variety of activities. These activities serve to:
Educate the public about this vital member of the veterinary medical team.
Reinforce the value and professionalism of veterinary technicians to veterinarians and the public.
Provide an opportunity for veterinary technicians to salute one another for excellent performance in their work.
Acknowledge veterinarians for hiring veterinary technicians.
