Our OPVNs (out-patient veterinary nurses) are made up of trained veterinary assistants. The out-patient veterinary nurse is primarily responsible for admitting patients into exam rooms for their veterinary exams. This includes getting weights, temperatures and collecting important background information and vitals, so the veterinarian is fully prepared when he or she begins the exam. The OPVNs also make up the majority of prescriptions. Our dedicated OPVNs are always available to help with pet questions regarding the medications dispensed to treat your pet, bereavement counseling, etc.).
