Veterinary technicians honored

The UF Veterinary Hospitals celebrated National Veterinary Technician Week, held Oct. 14-20, by hosting a special poker-themed dinner. We are so proud of our veterinary nurses, and all they do for us, for our animal patients and for those who entrust their animals’ care to us!
