Certified veterinary technicians (CVT) are the backbone of our hospital, providing skilled support and knowledgeable care as part of your pet’s health care team. A veterinary technician is an individual who has graduated from a veterinary technology program accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association. To become a CVT requires many hours of on-the-job training after graduation and passing a certification exam. At Northwest Neighborhood Veterinary Hospital we are very lucky to have the best veterinary technicians in Portland. All of our technicians are certified and provide the highest level of care; whether taking x-rays, drawing blood, assisting with anesthesia or helping our veterinarians during exams.
We are very proud of our technicians and invite you get to know them better.
