Move Over National Vet Tech Week, it’s Time to Celebrate RVT Month!

September 30, 2017

by Heather Quilty, RVT

It is with great pleasure that the Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) will be celebrating the first annual “RVT Month” this October. The Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians, with the support of all our provincial associations, has been instrumental in developing this national campaign. Because one week just wasn’t enough, RVT Month will feature professional recognition for registered veterinary technologists and technicians.

Emphasis will be placed on the value and importance of RVTs within veterinary healthcare. Two teaser videos and one feature video were launched in August and September that highlight the many roles that RVTs play towards animal healthcare. See them
at http://rvttcanada.ca/october2017/.

RVT Month kits are available on our website for workplaces to highlight their RVT team members and educate colleagues and members of the public on these skilled members of the team. Each veterinary team is encouraged to utilize the kit materials to launch their own activities and join in on social media with the hashtags #HugAnRVT #RVTMonth, #oneweekjustwasntenough.

Check out our website or social media @RVTTC for more activities and ideas to share. Join together to celebrate RVT Month!

The RVTTC would like to thank the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians, British Columbia Veterinary Technologists Association, Alberta Association of Animal Health Technologists, Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists, Manitoba Veterinary Technologists Association and Eastern Veterinary Technicians Association in working together for this truly national campaign in support of our members. It is a testament that we accomplish great things when we work toward a common goal.
