Rhode Island Veterinary Technician of the Year!

We all know that our Veterinarians rely heavily on the expertise and compassionate care shown by technicians and support staff.  Technicians are the unsung heroes in veterinary medicine, often coming to know their patients so well that they pick up on subtle changes in patient conditions that avert problems and save lives

In an effort to show appreciation to these valued colleagues, the RIVTA Executive Board members are pleased to announce the Veterinary Technician of the Year Award.  Please take a moment to nominate a veterinary technician whose exemplary efforts should be recognized with this award. 

Nominations will be accepted from October 1st through November 1st and announced in the Newsletter and at the RIVMA Annual Meeting in November in Newport.

The Vet Tech of the Year will receive one year of membership at no cost and also complimentary registration to the RIVTA Symposium in March!
