Our Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs) are well educated and have experience in their field. An RVT is a graduate from a two-year, American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accredited program from a community college, college or university. They are also required to pass a credentialing exam. Passing this exam ensures the public that the veterinary technician has entry-level knowledge of the duties they are asked to perform in the veterinary clinic or hospital.
Lisa – RVT
Lisa can’t remember a time that she didn’t want to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Growing up with dogs, cats and even chickens, she quickly found her calling and has been with Los Banos Veterinary Clinic since 1989. She loves that each pet has his or her own personality and working with our wonderful staff. In her free time, she is busy on her family ranch, which has horses, cows, sheep chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats!
Melanie - RVT
Melanie attended an elementary school based on a curriculum surrounding marine biology, what a fun way to grow up! While she knew she would end up working with animals in her career, she assumed it would be marine animals. Luckily for us, she obtained an Associate of Science degree from Western Career College before passing the test to become a Registered Veterinary Technician. She has now been with us since 2006. While at work, Melanie loves assisting with surgeries and in her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her 3 dogs, Sierra, Emma Lou and Munchkin.
