At Pets Best, we recognize that the veterinary industry is largely powered by the hardworking and dedicated certified veterinary technicians across the nation. To acknowledge their tireless efforts, we created the Why I Love Being a Vet Tech contest, now in its second year. In partnership with the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA), we are pleased to announce the top eight finalists for 2015.
Meet Regina Sanger, an oncology tech for 15 years. Regina works at PETS Referral Center in Berkeley, California.
Regina enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters, whether it’s home watching movies or exploring the beach. She can also be found reading in the company of one or more of her eight pets, whom she affectionately calls her “favorite cuddle buddies.”
Regina’s pets include four cats: Freckles and Sabrina, both 16-year-old cats adopted from San Francisco Animal Control; and Trouble and Gizmo, two 8-year-old tabbies, each rescues adopted from Regina’s clinic. Her four dogs are: Tasha, an 8-year-old boxer mix abandoned by her owners after she tested positive for parvovirus; Frankie, the lovable 6-year-old blue nose pitbull brought to the hospital at six weeks old emaciated and with a bite wound to the head; Roxann, a rescued 4-year-old pitbull mix with the tip of her left ear cut off and a tail broken in three places; and the family’s latest addition, Toni the Chiweenie, born after her pregnant mother was rescued by Regina’s manager.
