It’s Vet Tech Appreciation Week; the NC Zoo celebrates the techs who work with everything from the tiniest frog to the biggest elephant

Zoo Filez

ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — Just like people, animals need annual checkups. 

At the North Carolina Zoo, that means the vet staff must examine hundreds of animals ranging from tiny dart frogs to multi-ton elephants!

It’s a huge job for a very small staff. 

The zoo has just two full-time veterinarians and four vet technicians. 

This is Vet Tech Appreciation Week and this week’s Zoo Filez shows us why these employees deserve the week of celebration.
