Technicians and Assistants
At South Novato Animal Hospital we have both Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVT) and Veterinary Assistants. An RVT is a licensed professional who has passed the examination for certification and holds a current California license to practice as an RVT. There are very specific job tasks that may be delegated to only an RVT by a veterinarian. More information regarding the Practice Act can be viewed at the Veterinary Medical Board website, www.vmb.ca.gov.
