What are Registered Veterinary Technicians?
Registered Veterinary Technicians/Technologists (RVTs) are highly trained professionals who work as an integral part of the veterinary medical team.
An RVT has graduated from an accredited program, has successfully completed the Veterinary Technician National Examination and has met all the requirements identified by their provincial professional association.
Further, in order to maintain registered status, RVTs must meet annual continuing education requirements as set out by their Technician’s association.”
Does Full Circle offer nail trims for dogs and cats?
Nail trims can be booked with our Technicians and Vet Assistants, providing the dog or cat is readily handled. We believe in a fear-free approach to care and for this reason, animals who behave aggressively and/or very fearful animals may need sedation to complete a nail trim.
Will Technicians perform anal gland expressions?
Technicians can perform routine anal gland expressions. If they notice anything abnormal, they will report their findings to the Veterinarian.
