Podcast: Canada vs US Veterinary Technicians with Purvi Patel


This week we're joined by the Petplan Veterinary Technician of the Year, Purvi Patel from Ontario, Canada! Host veterinarians Ernie Ward and Cyndie Courtney along with registered veterinary technician Beckie Mossor cross the border to find out what it's like to be a veterinary professional in the Great White North. Purvi shares her story of growing up in Malawi, moving to Canada to pursue veterinary medicine, and finding her ultimate passion as a veterinary technician. Purvi also discusses with the trio the similarities and differences in veterinary practices in Canada and the U.S., her thoughts on the term “veterinary nurse,” and whether or not Canadian pet owners complain about money as much as Americans!
