Gina Fallish, BS, CVT: We really want [technicians] to be supported. They are the backbone and the heart of every animal hospital and they want to grow, and they want to be recognized for that growth.

We [also] sponsor them and pay for them to go through the program, and we provide mentorship and support for these students as they go along.
