October Celebrates Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians Across Canada

September 29, 2019

Ottawa, ON – The Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) is celebrating national RVT Month in October by encouraging registered veterinary technicians and technologists (RVTs) to “Carve your own path – break the mold.”

“We know RVTs/RAHTs are vital members of the veterinary healthcare team with extensive knowledge and experience,” says RVTTC President, Heather Shannon, RVT. “This year’s theme focuses on the diverse career path each RVT takes to create a culture of longevity and success in veterinary technology.”

RVTs are formally educated in a number of areas within veterinary medicine. From anesthesia to dentistry; lab animal research to industry sales; equine to avian and exotics; nutrition to radiology; large animal to shelter medicine, RVTs bring forward a diverse background to share alongside veterinarians, providing animals with the highest quality of healthcare.

Every October, RVTTC and provincial associations across Canada (BCVTA, ABVTA, SAVT, MVTA, OAVT, EVTA) celebrate and recognize RVTs with promotional items such as RVT Month kits and t-shirts. New this year is RVTTC’s partnership with UBAVET to give away two $100 gift cards each week during the month through a social media contest. To enter, participants must like UBAVET and RVTTC Facebook pages, go to a landing page on the UBAVET website to fill out a form, and be an RVT member in good standing
