Saskatchewan Proclaims Veterinary Technician Week

Released on October 16, 2017

The week of October 15-21 recognizes the important role veterinary technologists play in ensuring animal health care excellence.

Today, Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart proclaimed Veterinary Technician Week to coincide with National Veterinary Technician Week in both Canada and the United States.

“The veterinary technology profession is vital to the quality care of animals in Saskatchewan and we value the work these professionals do in a range of workplaces across the province,” Stewart said.  “The annual proclamation is an opportunity to recognize the positive contribution they make to our agricultural industry and to animal health care in general.”

“Registered veterinary technologists are dedicated professionals whose daily work ensures animal health care excellence in Saskatchewan,” Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists Board President Lois Ridgway said.  “As part of the veterinary health care team, veterinary technologists promote public health, food safety and the delivery of progressive, compassionate and humane veterinary medical care for all animals.  This declaration celebrates all veterinary technologists who demonstrate the highest ethical standards in both their veterinary medicine-related work and their professional advancement.”

Saskatchewan has about 400 registered veterinary technologists who work in a variety of settings, such as veterinary clinics, livestock operations and veterinary pharmaceutical and supply companies.

The proclamation of Veterinary Technician Week in Saskatchewan is sponsored by the Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists, which has been representing veterinary technologists in the province since 1984.
