National Veterinary Technician Week is October 16-22, 2016.

Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences is thankful for the registered veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants who help care for patients and their owners at the center’s Veterinary Medical Hospital.

These dedicated employees provide care and comfort to the more than 15,000 animals the Hospital treats each year.

“They are the specialists’ eyes, ears and patient advocates every hour of every day,” says Dr. Mark Neer, director of OSU Veterinary Medical Hospital. “Without our technicians, the level and quality of patient care would suffer immensely. The dedication they have for their profession is second to none. They truly make all of us better clinicians and specialists.”
