Every October, the industry takes a week to celebrate veterinary technicians! This year, we would like to talk to you all about them: who they are, what they do, and why they are so awesome. Spoiler alert: we could not do this without them!

First, because not everyone is 100% sure on this: What actually is a vet tech?

A credentialed veterinary nurse! First, they graduate from an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accredited program (with BAS or AAS degrees in hand) and then sit for their state specific exam to become boarded. Here in Virginia, they must maintain yearly licensing with the Va Dept. of Health after meeting the required amount of continuing education each year. Their college education not only includes the usual suspects, but also includes things like pathology, pharmacology, anatomy and physiology, anesthesia, radiology, and more! Every LVT regardless of their specialty learns all aspects of veterinary medicine. Even if you only want to work with horses, you still have to learn about hamsters!

At graduation, these newly hatched veterinary technicians take an oath. This Oath is their promise to all of us that no matter what, they will leave everything they have at the paws, hooves, and toe beans of the animals they get to take care of.

Tonight we ask you help us share this oath! Share so everyone can help us spoil our own LVTs by including your story about how a vet tech (does not have to be just ours, but we love praise for ours), has helped you and your pet live a better life.

Please help us win our bragging rights! Vote for Team LVIM! 🐰 🌸

Good morning!

It appears our phones are acting up this morning. We are actively working on fixing them but we can not access any voicemails and phone calls ring for a second and hang up. In the meantime, you can contact us via email - [email protected]

Thank you!

Some interesting things happening here today at Internal Medicine! We ended up finding two squirrels likely dropped from a nest that are super friendly. We’ve been feeding them and hoping momma is near by, if no sight of her is found they will be off to the rehabilitation center since they can’t quite function on their own yet. (They would not leave your feet and could not climb the tree without falling) super super cute though 😍

Dr. Lester is originally from upstate NY. She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Cornell University and performed both rotating and specialty (Internal Medicine) internships at Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Services in Rochester NY. Following completion of her internships, she pursued a residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Florida that was completed in July 2020. Her primary areas of interest are endocrinology, nephrology, urology and immune-mediated disease, though she enjoys all aspects of internal medicine.

Dr. Lester lives with her husband and three domestic short-hair cats (Merlin, Luna and Indy). She enjoys cooking (particularly exploring pasta making and traditional French techniques), knitting, reading and playing the ukulele. She is excited to start the next chapter of her veterinary career with the VCA's Leesburg Veterinary Internal Medicine team!

Meet One of Our Multi-faceted Employees:

Amanda (Mandy) Hanley, Purchaser/ Inventory Manager for Animal Emergency Crtitical Care and Tech assistant for Leesburg Veterinary Internal Medicine. Mandy began her career in October of 2011 when she was a technician's assistant for Leesburg Veterinary Internal Medicine. In September of 2015, she saw the opportunity to grow her career and became the Team Leader for Veterinary Radiology Associates. In October of 2018, after Veterinary Radiology Associates no longer had a doctor, she transitioned back onto the Internal Medicine Department team and often helps out the Emergency Team as well.

Mandy's favorite part about working here is that she feels that we practice great medicine and really enjoys working with everyone, but most of all she loves helping animals.

In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband and kids outside: hiking and gardening. Mandy also enjoys spending time with extended family and friends. Mandy has a few fuzzy children as well, She refers to Yah Yah (a 14 year old cattle dog mix) as her first "baby", Eek is her parakeet , and Strawberry Glitter Sparkles the family's sassy Lion Head rabbit.

This is KC, a little yorkiepoo we got to meet last week when she was hospitalized with the emergency department and needing a consult with an internist. KC was diagnosed with anemia/thrombocytopenia/neutropenia and suspect immune mediated pancytopenia. Her neutropenia has improved and we are awaiting her bloodwork results today from her recheck. She quickly stole our hearts, she’s the sweetest girl!

VCA Leesburg Veterinary Internal Medicine is doing its best to serve our community and patients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are updating our client protocol to align with the CDC and WHO guidelines. Our goal is to continue offering care in a manner safe for our clients, our team, and our community.

The following will be effective immediately:

- If you have an upcoming appointment that can be postponed such as a recheck, please call our office so we can discuss whether postponing would be appropriate.
- If you have an upcoming appointment that cannot be postponed, we ask that you wait in your car and call us from the parking lot. When we have your room cleaned and prepared, we will notify you and accompany you and your pet directly to the exam room.
-Upon check out, we will have you continue waiting in the room or in your car while we perform diagnostics and fill medications.

We ask that you please fill out registration forms online instead of using the in-hospital Ipad. You can find these forms under ‘Getting ready - preparing for your appointment’ when you visit https://internalmedicinevets.com/for-patients/.

New to Town – Need a Veterinarian

Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

Our Welcome Kits feature and direct these new families to a small number of local businesses for the goods, services & professionals that they need to find.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one Veterinarian, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being the featured Veterinarian in our local Welcome Kits.

It is worthy to note that, according to Dr. Cathy Goodwin in her book “Making the Big Move”, 55% of new residents and families seek out a new Veterinarian shortly after their relocation. As such, more than one-half of our Welcome Kit recipients are actively looking for a new Vet.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please reply to this email with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience.

For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature.

Thanks.
