Our Technician Staff
Our nursing staff consists of five veterinary technicians and two technician assistants. All of our veterinary technicians have graduated from accredited colleges with degrees in veterinary technology and are certified and/or licensed. Together, our technicians have a combined total of over 40 years in professional technical experience. You will often see these technicians assisting the doctor in the exam room with your pet, but this is only a small part of what they do. Technicians provide in-depth nursing care to hospitalized patients, and they obtain blood, urine, and other samples for laboratory testing. They also perform dental cleanings as well as diagnostic procedures such as X-rays and microscopic examinations of skin, ear, and fecal samples. During surgical procedures, they regulate anesthesia and are responsible for monitoring surgical patients from induction of anesthesia to recovery. Technician assistants are there to help our technicians and doctors every step of the way by preparing vaccinations, setting up and reading basic laboratory tests, and restraining patients for exams and minor procedures. Because our technical staff has such a broad range of responsibilities, they are an integral part of our daily operation.
