GREENIES Pet Oral Health Event! 

 Ori at Greenies

Hundreds of technicians participated in the second annual GREENIES Pet Oral Health Event on July 30 - 31, 2011, at PETCOs nationwide. Oriana D. Scislowicz, B.S., L.V.T. assisted at a PETCO in Richmond, VA. Here is her assessment of the event. 


"As the technician at the event, I was able to educate owners on home dental care for their pets, as well as emphasize the importance of proper checkups from the vet and dental cleanings. All in all, it was a successful event and was a great opportunity to reach out to the public and show the important role of veterinary technicians in their community!"


Deadline for the Bayer Technician CE Program is approaching! 


For the second year in a row, Bayer Animal Health has partnered with NAVTA to provide funds for six veterinary technicians to attend a veterinary conference of their choice. The first deadline for this program for the 2011-2012 year is September 1, 2011. Applicants must be NAVTA members and submit a CE quality article on a current parasitology topic. Visit the NAVTA website or email for more information.
