A Veterinary Technician Is a Skilled Nurse For Pets
We are always pleased when a client tells us that they really like and appreciate Dr. Montor. Behind the scenes, she enlists the help of a talented group of pet nurses, which are normally called technicians, in the veterinary field. These technicians perform many of of the same procedures as nurses working in the human medical field. Our technicians assist Dr. Montor with surgeries and on their own do dental cleanings, lab work, take x-rays, place IV catheters, and a list of other services too lengthy to list here. While many veterinary technicians have been trained exclusively on the job (with proper supervision) over many years, others have additionally attended multi year college programs. In all cases, veterinary technicians, just like human nurses, are the backbone of the veterinary medical team. They are instrumental to Dr. Montor in helping you to keep your pet happy and healthy.

Boots - Hospital Cat
Boots was brought to us by an employee who found him as a stray, and couldn't leave him behind! He was placed in a home but sadly it did not work out. He was returned to us and he captured our hearts. We decided to keep him with us, and make the hospital his forever home. Boots enjoys climbing on top of tall cabinets, playing with cat nip, and entertaining our clients.
