Beware of Bones!
Bones can cause quite a predicament for pet owners. On one hand, they can provide entertainment and fun. But they can also crack or break teeth, damage the enamel on teeth, splinter and break causing mouth injury and/or GI irritation, become a choking hazard, and as Rylee found out the hard way - even get stuck around a dog's mouth.
What is an LVT?
Have you ever wondered who the person is that starts your pet’s veterinary appointment? Have you looked at their credentials and wondered what LVT means? LVT stands for Licensed Veterinary Technician. Our five veterinary technicians at Schmitt’s Animal Hospital are a crucial part of your veterinary team and are responsible for so many things. Technicians share many similarities in skills and training to their nurse counterpart in human medicine. In fact, there’s been discussion about standardizing the title from LVT, RVT (registered vet tech), and CVT (certified vet tech) to Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN).
