We’re Celebrating National Veterinary Technician Week!

by Ali Oaks | October 16, 2023

National Veterinary Technician Week 2023 is October 15-21!

We love veterinary technician week and the chance to celebrate our hardworking vet techs!

First observed in 1993, National Veterinary Technician Week occurs annually during the third week of October and is officially designated by the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA).

At GlobalVetLink, we acknowledge the dedication, tireless effort, and commitment exhibited by veterinary technicians in their daily endeavors to uphold the welfare of animals. A veterinary technician plays a vital role in the smooth functioning of veterinary practices, often involving complex responsibilities. While we believe in showing our appreciation for these professionals every day, we extend an invitation to express extra recognition during this special week!

Plus, find out how you can be entered to win $50!

If you’re looking for a chance to get together and celebrate with a team event, consider hosting a special awards gala or dinner event to honor your vet techs. Create categories such as "Outstanding Vet Tech of the Year," "Most Compassionate Vet Tech," and "Innovative Problem Solver." Invite all staff members and their families for a night of recognition and celebration. Consider providing personalized awards, certificates, or tokens of appreciation to the winners. This event can help boost morale and foster a sense of pride among your vet tech team!

On behalf of the GlobalVetLink team, we sincerely appreciate all the dedicated veterinary technicians!
