National Veterinary Technician Week: Third Week of October

National Veterinary Technician Week: Third Week of October

Veterinary technicians are critical to the day-to-day function of veterinary practices, and play vital roles in preserving animal health and welfare. National Veterinary Technician Week, first celebrated in 1993, takes place in the third week of October each year, and provides an opportunity to recognize veterinary technicians’ contributions.

Although we value veterinary technicians every day of the year, we take this week to honor their commitment to compassionate, high-quality veterinary care for all animals.

For more information about veterinary technology and becoming a veterinary technician, see AVMA’s Veterinary Technicians brochure or view their page about veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants.
