What is the real value of veterinary technicians?
by S&A Staff
Veterinary technicians add value for pets, clients and clinics — plus they make smart marketing targets for Animal Health companies.
- Credentialed Veterinary Technician refers to LVT, RVT or CVT depending on the technicians's state of residence.
- On average, for every credentialed veterinary technician a practice employed, the practice generated $161,493 more in gross revenue.1 Sixty-eight percent of practices schedule veterinary technician specific appointment.2
- At least 65 percent of full-time veterinary technicians earn $20 an hour or less.
- NAVTA developed the Committee on Veterinary Technician Specialties (CVTS) in 1994. Specialty training grew out of the recognition that advanced knowledge and skills benefit the profession, as well as pets.
- Veterinary technicians are vital for creating more effective and efficient use of veterinarians' time, including improving client communications.
