Did you know October is Veterinary Technician Appreciation Month across Canada? That’s right, we have an entire month to sing the praises for our beloved RVT staff, and we’d love to introduce you! We currently have three Registered Veterinary Technicians working in our clinic – Danya, Roy and Marcela!

RVT Month celebrates the teamwork between RVTs and Veterinarians (DVMs), who provide animals with the highest quality of healthcare. RVT’s are formally educated professionals who worked hard to gain their credentials, and are trained in a large number of areas within veterinary medicine – from anaesthesia to dentistry, lab animal research to animal behaviour, equine to avian and exotics, nutrition to radiology, large animals and shelter medicine.

We’d like to highlight them during this month (they deserve it!). Read more about each of them below:

We first met Danya when she came to Centre Street Animal Hospital at 11 years old, as a client with her very first kitten! We were thrilled to see her come full circle in the summer of 2011 as she graduated from the veterinary technician program and joined us as part of the CSAH team!

Roy started working for Centre Street Animal Hospital in the summer of 2005 after graduating with honors from the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College. He has a special interest in the veterinary emergency field where the fast pace keeps him on his toes for new advancements in animal medicine.

Marcela joined our practice in May of 2019, but has been in the veterinary field since 2005. Her specialties as a technician include surgery and animal behavior, and she enjoys the hands-on aspect of diagnostics and procedures.
