Leesburg Veterinary Hospital Support StaffClient Care Specialists

"Welcome to Leesburg Veterinary Hospital! How may I help you?"

A bright smile and this cheerful reception from one of our Client Care Specialists will greet you upon your arrival at LVH! From the moment you walk through the door or call to schedule an appointment, the front desk staff is ready to answer your questions and help your visit be as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Our Client Care Specialists are true multitaskers, keeping the hospital organized and running efficiently. At first glance they can be seen answering phones, scheduling appointments, and checking in patients; behind the scenes they are filling medication and food requests and briefing the medical staff of new cases or emergency situations.

Leesburg Veterinary Hospital Support StaffVeterinary Assistants

Our skilled veterinary assistants play an integral role in your pet's care. Prior to your pet's appointment, the veterinary assistant begins prepping for your pet's visit - treatment plans, vaccine histories, and exam rooms are prepared.

As most of you have seen, our veterinary assistants greet you once you have entered the exam room, and begin with a detailed history of your pet. After a history is obtained, the veterinary assistant works closely with the doctor and patient to assist with holding the pet during the exam. They also organize other team members and licensed vet technicians for treatments such as blood-work, radiographs, and nail trims. Medications are dispensed by the veterinary assistant, reviewed, and then discussed with you, along with estimates that may have been recommended by the doctor. Once your pet's exam and services are complete, the veterinary assistant communicates with the client care specialists to ensure your pet's information is complete and accurate prior to check out.

When the veterinary assistants are not assisting with the doctors, they lend a hand with hospitalized patients, laboratory duties such as blood-work, Heartworm/Lyme combo tests, fecal exams, and ear cytology; they also perform callbacks to check on your pet's progress. Each assistant also has a surgical assisting day, in which they prepare for each surgery, clean and sterilize surgical instruments, and help provide fresh and comfortable bedding for your pet's recovery.

Leesburg Veterinary Hospital Support StaffTechnician Assistants/Kennel Staff

You may not see them during an appointment, but our technician assistants are hard at work behind-the-scenes at LVH. From keeping our medical treatment and surgery areas sterile and clean, to caring for pets boarding in our kennel, and even performing bathing and grooming tasks, the tech assistants give new meaning to the term "hands-on experience."

While the primary responsibility of our kennel staff is the care and husbandry of patients in the hospital, the technician assistants are involved in many facets of the hospital's day-to-day operations, and help keep the hospital running efficiently. There is never a dull moment and our technician assistants are always there to provide extra support and a helping hand to our veterinarians, technicians, and front office staff.
