Our veterinary technicians are the ones who have a job description list as long as a Great Dane is tall! On any given day they can be seen performing various skills in anesthesiology, phlebotomy, dentistry, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, physical therapy, laser therapy, intensive care, and more! Their patients range in age, size, personality, and species. These technicians have big hearts, strong stomachs, thoughtful minds, educations, experience, incredible strength emotionally & physically, and they juggle it ALL so well. We are grateful to have a team compiled of individuals all working together to take the best care of your pet. They do a fantastic job assisting our veterinarians as well as educating you how to come alongside us to be the best partners in creating a happy, healthy life for your furry family members.

Let's meet them!
