Here’s what readers have to say about Today’s Veterinary Nurse:

I received my first copy of Today’s Veterinary Nurse in my work mailbox this past week; I cracked it open this morning and was so inspired by the stories written in it. The educational articles were great. I am so thankful that there is a journal for veterinary technicians! I subscribed as soon as I finished.

—Kalin Mayberry

I want to thank you for publishing such a well thought out, professional and informative magazine for veterinary technicians. This is long overdue and you have hit a home run.

—Donna Meier

I have been a licensed veterinary technician since 1979 and have had the privilege to work in academia and referral veterinary practices. This journal is relevant, educational and uplifting. It provides information to technicians from the student/recent graduates through veterinary technician specialists.
