Gracie knows how to live in the moment!

Next week, October 12 – 18, 2014 is National Veterinary Technician Week

  • Veterinary staff – How do you say ‘thank you’ to your veterinary technicians?
  •  Vet techs – What makes your day extra fun, hard, rewarding?
  • Clients – Have you had an opportunity to see a vet tech in action or learned something from a vet tech?

Share your story, appreciation, and tips for celebrating vet techs in the comments below or on the AboutVetMed Facebook page for possible inclusion in an upcoming article celebrating vet techs on the About.com Veterinary Medicine site. Thank you!

A look back, a look ahead

Quincy, in a serious moment

Looking Back

March marked my 15th year with About.com. I started training in December 1998 and went live on the site, then called The Mining Company, on March 4, 1999.

Looking Forward

I am still here at about.com. I am happy to report that many exciting design changes are in the works (finally, right?!). I am most excited about photos. Large, beautiful photos. Changes are rolling out over the next few months. Some are already in place, like the new home page at About.com.

I plan on doing more “behind the scenes” veterinary clinical photos in the coming year. Anything you would like to see? Please post a comment.

Thanks for hanging out with me.

Day of Love
