Vet Nurse Day is an annual observance celebrated on the Second Friday of October. Vet Nurses are often left unrecognized and work with the veterinarian to take care of your pets. Vet Nurse Day is a day to remember and appreciate the vet nurses from around the world for their vital role.

“I’m very caring with animals. I think patience is a big deal, because animals are always jumping around. I love to take care of people, so I think I’d be a good vet. I always wanted to be a vet when I was little.” – Jennifer Love Hewitt

History of Vet Nurse Day

The Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia (VNCA) initiated Vet Nurse Day. The celebration of the day is to raise awareness about the role of vet nurses to the general public. It is a perfect day to recognize their contributions and appreciate their hard work and dedication in taking good care of their pets. They work every day to help protect the pets to heal and provide them comfort at every level. Vet nurses are those who care for their pets when they are sick. They identify their condition through careful examination. These men and nurses do the first aid and work with the veterinary doctors to assist them. Vet nurses play a vital role in the case of surgery and monitor everything is going well. It is they who check if the right medicines are given to the pet animals and checks if their bandage needs a change.
