Veterinary receptionists are often a visitors' first and last point of contact. Those that provide client service in animal hospitals are an essential part of the team. The care they contribute can greatly impact the success of a practice.

Veterinary Receptionist Week, celebrated the last full week of April each year, is a swell time to show appreciation to the client service representatives in pet hospitals everywhere. We celebrate during the last full week of April every year. We feel this spotlight on the front office is a super complement to October’s Veterinary Technician Week.
