Registered Veterinary Technician

Your pet deserves the best care! That is why we have a registered veterinary technician to assist in the care of your pet. A RVT is your pet’s “nurse”. Whether she is drawing blood from your pet, placing an IV catheter, monitoring anesthesia, or assisting in surgery, our RVT offers your pet exceptional care. Our RVT is up to date on major developments in veterinary medicine through continuing education opportunities such as seminars, workshops, regional and national meetings as well as regular staff meetings. We feel very fortunate to have a RVT in our practice.
