Happy National Vet Tech Week!

This week, October 12-18, is National Veterinary Technician Week, and here at Chicago Zoological Society, we would like to recognize our amazing vet techs for their dedication in contributing to the health and wellbeing of all the animals in our care.

Veterinary technicians work side by side with our veterinarians in all medical procedures and provide expert, dedicated care to their patients. They function in numerous key roles, providing support for anesthesia, phlebotomy, clinical care, radiology, and laboratory functions.
Our Veterinary Services team includes six certified vet techs with combined decades of experience. All our vet techs are well versed in caring for multiple species and have received advanced training in quarantine care and the operation of many pieces of state of the art imaging equipment such as digital radiography, ultrasound, and computed tomography (CT). Moreover, our vet techs serve in multiple capacities and are highly functional, dedicated professionals that are integral to the success of our veterinary team.

Please join us in acknowledging the many contributions made by our vet techs here at CZS: John Pauley, Michelle Soszynski, Kate Sladek, Ashlee Webb, Michelle Eastridge and Mary Ann Duda.

National Veterinary Technician Week was first recognized in 1993 in an effort to celebrate and promote awareness of the profession of Veterinary Technology.
