Texas A&M-Kingsville celebrates National Veterinary Technician Week

Posted on

Texas A&M-Kingsville staff and students of the Veterinary Technology (VETT) program will celebrate Veterinary Technician Week with events throughout the week on campus.

The public event on Wednesday, Oct. 19 will be at the pavilion outside the Memorial Student Union Building from noon to 2 p.m. Vet Tech students and staff will give visitors information on important veterinary preventatives and health checks for their pets.

Christine Hoskinson, Assistant Director of Veterinary Technology, said the week is an opportunity to bring awareness to the community about who and what licensed veterinary technicians (LVTs) are and the importance of their role in a veterinary clinic.

“The pursuit of a career in veterinary technology can at times be stressful and overwhelming, as LVTs are the backbone of all veterinary clinics. This week gives us a chance to highlight the positive aspects of a career in veterinary technology, build comradery and positivity through fun activities and show just how much they are appreciated,” she said.

“The TAMUK VETT Program is dedicated to producing well-rounded veterinary technologists with exceptional skills. Celebrating our students and VETT program graduates during Vet Tech Week is just another way we support our students in academic and future career successes.”
