Our Technicians

What it means to be a registered veterinary technician:
Information obtained from http://www.ohiorvt.org/faq.htm
To become a veterinary technician in the state of Ohio you must go to a 2 or 4 year American Veterinary Medical Association (or AVMA) nationally accredited school to receive an associates or a bachelors degree in veterinary technology. You then take the VTNE (national board exam for veterinary technology) and register with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board (or OVMLB) as a credentialed veterinary technician. You must complete annual continuing education courses to maintain your license.
Veterinary technicians are involved in many different aspects of veterinary medicine and perform many of the duties vital to excellent patient and client care in a hospital setting. The term veterinary nurse has been used to help the public relate to what a veterinary technician does, but it would be more accurate to say that a veterinary technician is a nurse, dental hygienist, surgical assistant, scrub nurse, radiology technician, lab technician, microbiologist, client service specialist, communications expert, transcriptionist, pharmacology technician, manager, nutritionist, animal trainer, behavior counselor, and sanitation specialist.
