PetCure Oncology at Care Center Celebrates Veterinary Technician Week

Cincinnati, OH – October 13, 2015 – PetCure Oncology at Care Center is paying tribute to the special efforts made by veterinary technicians. Similar to nurses in human healthcare, technicians play a vital role in the health and well-being of patients, providing attentive care and compassion to our furry family members.

National Veterinary Technician Week (October 11-17, 2015) provides the perfect opportunity to recognize these everyday heroes for their selfless work.

Kevin Sweeney, RVT, a registered veterinary technician with PetCure Oncology at Care Center, has been providing exceptional cancer care to pets throughout the tri-state region for the past five years. “Being a veterinary technician is exciting, challenging, and rewarding all at the same time,” said Kevin. “I enjoy working alongside board-certified veterinary specialists and I am proud we offer the most advanced therapies available. It’s satisfying to see our exceptional team extend a pet’s life and help them feel better.”

A career as a veterinary technician can be extremely gratifying, and there is an ongoing need for talented and dedicated professionals.

Cancer accounts for nearly 50 percent of all disease-related pet deaths and is the leading cause of death in older dogs and cats. To help those that need advanced cancer treatment, PetCure Oncology has launched a national network of veterinary cancer centers that have the advantage of being able to offer potentially lifesaving stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), designed with the intent to cure cancer with fewer treatments and less side effects than conventional radiation therapy. Care Center, a 24/7 emergency and specialty animal hospital located at 6995 East Kemper Road, Cincinnati, is the only location in the tri-state region offering SRS to companion animals.

PetCure Oncology centers in Phoenix, Cincinnati, and Clifton, NJ are operational. Locations in Wisconsin and Illinois are slated to open in the next few months, with many more in various stages of development across the country.
