We have three registered technicians at Piper Heritage. In order to become a registered technician two years of formal educational training are required as well as a written exam. Technicians, just like veterinarians, have to complete continuing education every year in order to maintain their license. Our technicians assist the doctors with diagnostics, surgery, dental procedures and anesthesia. They also perform various in-house laboratory testing and provide post-operative nursing care to our patients.
