Thank Heaven For Our Technicians

Written By Dr. Gary Holfinger

There’s a special group of employees at our hospitals that are the core of our pet care. These key members are our veterinary technicians, who carry both tremendous responsibility and are valued greatly. The state of Ohio is extremely strict about who is allowed to provide medical care. Only techs and doctors are licensed to perform diagnostics. Just like a registered nurse in human medicine, our techs perform the following:

• Radiographic imaging
• Diagnostic testing
• Cytology and parasite evaluation
• Medicating
• Monitoring vital signs
• Maintaining anesthesia and recovery
• Plus, maintaining medical records for all procedures.

Technicians provide close monitoring of patients, and are key to seeing changes in a pet’s health status. They work as an essential partner to the veterinarian, and are critical to patient diagnosis and treatment.
