Our Nursing & Support Staff
An experienced, compassionate and dedicated team of Certified Veterinary Technicians (CVTs) and Assistants play an integral role in supporting MVA specialists and emergency veterinarians. The staff consists of highly trained professionals who offer quality medical management in a caring environment. These on-site personnel provide continual care and supervision for hospitalized patients.
Our CVTs, or Veterinary Nurses, have an average of seven years’ experience and either a two- or four-year college degree from an AVMA approved program of Veterinary Technology. In addition to practicing their skills daily, MVA technicians sharpen their abilities and knowledge by attending continuing education and seminars on a regular basis.
Assistants provide compassionate, quality care on a day-to-day basis. Their responsibilities include bathing, feeding and exercising the patients as well as assisting the doctors and nurses in procedures.
