Why You Should Show Appreciation to Your Veterinary Staff

Looking for gift ideas for Veterinary staff? Your dog broke its nail, your cat got loose, your horse decided to frolic over a fence it shouldn’t have. Whatever your veterinary need is, your veterinary staff is there for you. It may be their job, but it’s more than that. It’s a passion, and you want to give back.

As a Licensed Veterinary Technician, I also want to show my support to my fellow staff members and superheroes. I often struggle with what to get them. Luckily, I Love Veterinary has me covered. Offering premium quality items, and deals I never have to look too far!

But what can you give them to show appreciation? Not sure? Not a problem! We’ve got you covered. Below we’ve compiled a list of our favorite go-to gifts for the veterinary professional in your life. Check it out! 

The I Love Veterinary Store

If you want a one-stop-shop for all your veterinary needs, then the I Love Veterinary Store is ideal. It’s a store made by veterinary professionals for veterinary professionals with a plethora of designs, clever sayings and even offers custom designs.

This store has everything from tote bags, backpacks, mugs, t-shirts, and even sneakers and socks! Of course, it’s all related to veterinary medicine, but it highlights specific professionals in the field, such as veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and veterinary receptionists. 

My pick for the best overall gift is the Personalized Bandage Scissors. As an LVT, they are something I need often and something I also lose often. But, they aren’t strictly for LVTs. They are multipurpose, and most–if not all veterinary professionals could use a pair. 

Having them personalized allows for no confusion and keeps them with you- right where they should be!

However, we aren’t going to bring a giant bag or even one of our premium ones. In comes the tote bag! These tote bags are fantastic for holding an arrangement of things. They come in super handy because they are very spacious.

Best Sneakers for Vet Techs 

Of course, when people not in the industry think of veterinary science, they often jump to small animals. But that’s only a small part of the industry for us veterinary technicians. We are often seeing animals from all walks of life. Animals such as birds, wildlife, lab animals, and even pocket pets!

These sneakers capture that idea by showing off more than one animal print painted all across it. It leads with the statement that vet techs treat more than one type of species and are proud of it! These sneakers also come in a super vibrant color that would brighten any veterinary professional’s day.

They are super comfortable as well, which is a giant need when you are on your feet all day long.

Perfect Gifts For Veterinary Assistants

If you have a great veterinary assistant, there is not much you can’t accomplish. The veterinary assistant is the one holding your pet or assisting the doctor with day-to-day procedures and tests. They often do much of the brunt work and go unrecognized. Their face is usually the first one clients and pets see and can relate to and use as a line of communication.

If you want to give them gifts that truly capture what it’s like to be a veterinary assistant, then we got you covered. Below are our top four favorites. 

Veterinary- Balls Are Overrated 30 OZ Vacuum Tumbler

Best Tumbler for Veterinary Assistant 

Veterinary assistants are constantly on their feet, moving from appointment to appointment and then to help assist whoever needs another hand. They probably never get to enjoy their drink at the appropriate temperature. This thoughtful gift will make it easier for them to achieve that goal.

The saying on the tumbler is an eye-catching one and truly fits into the world of veterinary medicine. After all, they are often in the room where doctors explain the benefits of neutering and answering all the owner’s questions. 

These tumblers come in seven different colors (black, blue, light blue, light purple, pink, red, and teal), so you will be able to find the perfect match for the veterinary assistant in your life. They are also 30 oz, which will hold a lot of fluid for those long days at the clinics they are often experiencing.

But what they all have in common is that they are helping be the voice for these animals. There are many times where the assistant is who alerts the technician or doctor on a particular behavior trait of an animal.

That’s what makes this necklace the best overall gift for veterinary assistants. It captures what they do and allows them to wear it proudly in a beautiful stainless steel or 18k gold pendant. You can even engrave the backside of it with their name or a message you want to give to them, making it that more special.

Watercolor Paws Hooded Blanket

Best Gift For The Overworked Veterinary Assistant 

Pug Life Hooded Blanket

Who doesn’t love a blanket?! Now add a blanket with a hood, and your veterinary assistant will be the coziest of them all. This is the perfect gift for the veterinary assistant who is a homebody and needs to veg out after long days at the clinic.

This blanket features two sizes youth (60” x 45”) and adult (80”x 60”) and is lined with an ultrasoft wool-like fabric to keep them warm. The design shows watercolor paw prints spread across the blanket on a premium suede polyester print allowing for vibrant colors. A bonus feature is that their pet is sure to love it too!
