October 11-17, 2015 ia National Vet Tech Week, which was designated by the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA). Many pet parents are unaware of the wide range of duties that vet techs perform. Vet techs are critical to the functioning of any veterinary practice, and are especially valued here at the Animal Medical center. AMC employs only Licensed Vet Tech’s (LVTs). LVTs have achieved a minimum of an associate’s degree or higher in veterinary technology from an accredited school, and they have passed state licensing board exams.
Now in its third year, the Why I Love Being a Vet Tech Contest from Pets Best Insurance recognizes that the veterinary industry is largely powered by the hardworking and dedicated certified veterinary technicians across the nation. This year, our own Anne Marie Kubacz, LVT, who has worked with us for over 40 years, has been chosen as the winner of this contest, thanks to your votes!

K-9 Chief leaves a stellar legacy of outstanding service.
Until Bob Mackie signs on to be her official designer, AMC’s nursing staff has agreed to stand in and have a bit of fun with Clover’s ever-changing bandages, while she heals from a number of wounds sustained as a stray. Clover was found in Suffolk County, Long Island about 3-4 weeks ago, and is presumed to be about 7-8 weeks old now.
