From coast to coast across Canada, Registered Veterinary Technicians and Technologists (RVTs) have become an integral part of the animal healthcare team. From x-rays, anesthesia, triage and rehabilitation, to nutrition, research, education and assisting in surgery — seven days just weren’t enough to celebrate and recognize RVTs.
The RVTTC has teamed up with the provincial RVT associations (BCVTA, AAAHT, SAVT, MVTA, OAVT, EVTA) to promote, celebrate and recognize Registered Veterinary Technicians and Technologists throughout the month of October.
