any time during the week and tell us why, in words, pictures, video—whatever
it takes to tell the world why your vet tech deserves the first prize of a $500

posts to promote your nominee. The Grand Prize Winner will be selected by a team of Wedgewood Pharmacy employees, the Runner-up Winners will be selected based on the number of

About National Veterinary Technician Week
Pets are important members of many families, yet they sometimes don’t receive
the care they deserve. Veterinary technicians are educated in the latest medical
advances and skilled at working alongside veterinarians to give pets the best
medical care possible. If compared to human medicine, veterinary technicians
perform the roles of many different human-health professionals, all wrapped up
into one extraordinary, compassionate person working with many different
species. They are key to the veterinary healthcare team delivering the best
possible care. Survey after survey shows that most people don't know what a
veterinary technician does. We do and want to help celebrate the people in this
very special profession.
The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, Inc. (NAVTA)
has proclaimed October 12- 18, 2014 to be National Veterinary Technician Week.
This annual event recognizes veterinary technicians for their contributions to
the best possible care for all animals. This year, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, a
company dedicated to helping pets reach their full potential through quality
nutrition and healthcare, is sponsoring the week-long celebration.
NAVTA is a nonprofit organization that represents and promotes the veterinary
technician profession. NAVTA provides direction, education, support and
coordination for its members. Incorporated in 1981, NAVTA is the national
organization devoted exclusively to developing and enhancing the profession of
veterinary technology. Pets give us unconditional love and veterinary
technicians give us peace of mind. For this reason they should be celebrated
during National Veterinary Technician Week. More information about NAVTA and
this special week can be found at www.navta.net.
