MSC Vet Tech to Host Open House in Celebration of National Veterinary Technician Week

10/14/2016

In celebration of National Veterinary Technician Week, the Murray State College Veterinary Technology Program is hosting its annual Open House. The event is an opportunity for attendees to learn about the veterinary technician profession and the Murray State College veterinary technology program. The open house will be held on Wednesday, October 19 from 9-11 a.m. on the MSC Tishomingo campus.  The event is free and open to the public. 

As members of the veterinary healthcare team, veterinary technicians are educated in the latest medical advances and skilled at working alongside veterinarians to give pets the best medical care possible. They work closely with the veterinarians, veterinary assistants, practice managers, and owners to provide essential care to all species of animals; pets with fur, feathers, scales or skin.

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) is a nonprofit organization that represents and promotes the veterinary technician profession.  The organization created National Veterinary Technician Week , October 16-22, 2016, to recognize veterinary technicians for their contributions in pet healthcare, as well as veterinarians, assistants, practice managers and others involved in pet care. More information about NAVTA and this special week can be found at www.navta.net.
