Hugs are the mainstay of their day, along with making sure no pet leaves without a treat!
Highly skilled and sensitive veterinary technicians and assistants await in the treatment rooms. During their initial meeting with the client they make every attempt to understand what the concerns and issues are for the owner and get some baseline vital signs on the patient and some initial information for the doctor. They assist in surgery and monitor anesthesia, administer medications, perform venipuncture and radiography, and sit with sick patients soothing them and nursing them compassionately. Our lead technician has developed advanced dentistry skills and is the engine of our dentistry practice.
The profound sense of teamwork is a unique gift in this practice. No one is unwilling to drop what they are doing in order to help a pet, a client or a coworker. No job is too big or too small to be accomplished when working together. When you walk through our front door it is obvious why we have been voted the number one veterinary clinic in Sedona for ten consecutive years!
