Rounding out a week of webinars, celebration, and awareness of what it takes to be a veterinary technician, Banfield Pet Hospital President, Brian Garish, took time to chat with Keyana Beamon, a Banfield employee and Penn Foster 2020 Graduate of the Year.
On becoming a veterinary technician
On the importance of credentialed veterinary technicians
Within the last week, said Garish, they’ve had a record number of veterinary technician appointments. “I want more,” he notes, not only to benefit the business but to allow vet techs to fully realize their purpose and work together with veterinarians, assistants, and clients to create a better world for pets.
