Some of our feline friends respond well to treatments when offering special treats such as baby food. Just like our canine patients, sometimes slowing down and offering a little love can help ease the stress of a hospital visit. Pippin seems to enjoy the treat even though we are taking a blood sample!
For some of our feline patients, an added supplement or medication can make all the difference for their appointments. How does your cat respond to the vet? Talk to us to find out how we can help them feel a little more relaxed for their next trip.

Did you know that kennel assistants and veterinary assistants have variable job duties depending on where they work? Our kennel assistants help keep our operations running smoothly by ensuring we have clean bedding, walking patients, and providing food, water, and comfort to our patients among other tasks in the hospital! We train our kennel assistants in house and offer development pathways into the veterinary assistant positions. The kennel assistant position is a crucial role in the hospital and is a great position for individuals looking to come into the veterinary industry with little to no experience.
We appreciate all the hard work they put in every day and we know our patients sure do love the extra attention!
#AssistantWeek #EmployeeAppreciation #Vetsrus #PetLife

Freya had a laparoscopic spay with us on Monday with Dr. Luce. Her owners sent a picture of her with her new "Feel Better Froggy," who unfortunately is no longer with us due to his recent de-stuffing by Freya. They were pleased to send us a great report on Freya and we were happy to hear she is recovering well!
Freya sent us the sweetest little note: "Thank you for taking such good care of me yesterday during my spay surgery... all of you, and especially Emma, Cherie, Andrew, and Dr. Luce! Here's a picture of me from last night. You can see I'm still kind of out of it, but my family got me a new soft toy when I came home, which is my favorite thing that almost never happens because I destroy them instantly. They called him "Feel Better Froggy," and I think it helped because this morning I felt enough better to shred him!"

We thought what a better way to celebrate National Cat Day then to share some pictures of Molly and Pippin. These two always manage to bring a smile to our faces everyday!

What do all those extra letters mean with some Licensed Veterinary Technicians?
Just as Veterinarians can pursue specialty and become boarded, so can Licensed Veterinary Technicians. These individuals have completed a formal process of specialized work experience and training, additional testing, and certification. Licensed Veterinary Technicians can specialize into many fields, some of these include:
Emergency and Critical Care
You can check out the full list at www.navta.net if you would like to learn more!
We were so proud to hear that a former Licensed Veterinary Technician that worked for us has received her specialty in behavior! Jessey Scheip, LVT, VTS (Behavior), KPA-CTP helped develop our low-stress handling and behavior-focused medicine that we utilize today.
Both Beth Perkowski, LVT and Sam Cate, Tech Student, help head up our behavior modification appointments today. Beth has been with us for 15 years and has helped some of our toughest patients learn to be less afraid and confident for their appointments. Sam officially received her Fear Free Certification this year, and while she has only been with us for 3 years, she has made quite the accomplishments!
#TechWeek #VetsRUs #PetLife #SpecialtyMedicine
How do we support Licensed Veterinary Technicians year round?
There are multiple universities and community colleges that offer Veterinary Technology programs. In Northern Virginia, students can choose two local programs, one at Northern Virginia Community College at the Loudoun Campus or at Blue Ridge Community College. There are also several online programs such as Penn Foster and Ashworth College. Students should always be careful to ensure their program is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) . We offer our students flexible schedules so they have ample time to successfully participate in the program of their choice.
We have several students attending Northern Virginia Community College Loudoun Campus and the Penn Foster programs. Virginia state law allows these students to perform the functions of a fully Licensed Veterinary Technician under the direction of a Veterinarian or another Licensed Veterinary Technician as long as they are actively enrolled into an accredited veterinary technician program.
We utilize this part of the law to help educate and train our staff so they may become successful Licensed Veterinary Technicians. As a teaching hospital, we also offer preceptorships (similar to an internship) to students attending Northern Virginia Community College Loudoun Campus so they may complete their program and enter the workforce more prepared for their chosen hospital to work at. This program is open to all students, regardless of their interest to work for our company following graduation.
We stand behind promoting education and furthering the advancement and education of Veterinary Professionals as one of our core company values.

What is the difference between a Veterinary Assistant and a Licensed Veterinary Technician?
There are lots of talented and experienced veterinary assistants in this industry that often do many of the same tasks as a Licensed Veterinary Technician. There are varied laws regarding what a licensed technician is allowed to do in comparison to veterinary assistants. In the state of Virginia, a Licensed Veterinary Technician can place catheters, intubate patients for anesthesia, provide intramuscular injections, and vaccines such as rabies.
National Veterinary Technician Week celebrates those individuals who, in addition to learning hands on training, have sought out a higher education, obtained a 2 to 4 year college degree, and have passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam(VTNE). The VTNE covers patient care for all types of animals including livestock, equestrian, and exotic pets in addition to cats and dogs.
You can find our Licensed Veterinary Technicians and Veterinary Technician students wearing navy blue and wine colored scrubs. We are proud to now have 15 Licensed Veterinary Technicians and Veterinary Technician Students working for our hospital to provide a the highest level of veterinary care for our patients. (Now if we can just get them all together for a group photo!)
#TechWeek #VetsRUs #PetLife #Education
What does a Licensed Veterinary Technician do? They work with a Veterinarian to assist in performing clinical treatments. Technicians are responsible for observing behavior and condition in patients, providing emergency first aid, collecting samples, calculating medication doses, assisting to help educate our clients, and so much more.
A Licensed Veterinary Technician has obtained either a 2-year or a 4-year degree from an AVMA-accredited veterinary technology program. In addition to their degree, they must attend continuing education seminars every year to maintain their state license once passing the Veterinary Technician National Examination following graduation!

Be sure to thank a technician this week for all of their hard work and dedication to our pets.
