Vet Tech Week

October 10 thru 16 is National Veterinary Technician Week.

We have some wonderful Vet Techs who help us.

They make appointments for us to see Dr B and sometimes squeeze us in fast when we get very sick or injured.

 They help Dr B take care of us when we need special attention.

 They greet us by name and that isn't always easy.

They're very gentle when they take our temperatures and pulse rates and super careful when they draw blood.

 They write down everything Dr B says so there's a good record to look  back at. And they fill our prescriptions and refills for us.

 They demonstrate how to maintain good health in between visits.

They talk with Mom about schedules and look things up for her when her memory has a blip.

We don't know what we'd do without our Vet Techs and Mom says we can do something nice for them next week.

Thanks for letting us know! I adore the vet techs at the office where I take my pups and consider them friends to me and my crew!

Thank you for the reminder that next week is Vet Tech Week! I agree that the vet tech's are nothing but a blessing and they do deserve recognition! I think you should share your blog post link with your vet tech's because I think they'd love to know that they are very famous in Blogville!

Who knew? I'll have to do something for my fabulous crew! I guess everyone needs a week - when is Mom to 10 dogs week? g

I guess my previous comment got eaten by blogger! Damn! Thor wanted to know if the Porties want you to make Frosty Paws for their Vet Tech, so you can make a mess for them to clean up.

Have a great weekend.

I LOVE my vet techs. In fact, nice Marie is the ONLY one I will let trim my delicate nails.

We have great techs at Charli's vets too. It's nice to see that they are acknowledged for all of the wonderful things they do. Thanks for the reminder.

You are such a generous person! We have been trying to stay away from the vet office these days. For Dr. Larson, no news from us is indeed good news.
