Survey: How important are vet techs?
We need your input in finding out how much veterinary technicians are worth in animal hospitals, vet clinics and other places. So, we're asking all team members-technicians and otherwise- to complete our survey. If completed, you'll receive an exclusive, free educational tool worth at least $50; plus, you'll help the profession identify just how much technicians help practices and patients. Complete the survey here.
