David Glattstein: Hey VEGgies, happy vet assistant week, David Glattstein here um just wanted to thank everyone on this big week and also share a quick story. So when I first joined VEG um as many of you know, I didn't come from the veterinary field to begin with um even though I knew a little bit about it, and I remember asking, David, so what's the difference between, you know what this person does and that person does and we're going to assist and specifically, and he said they're the glue in the hospital, they are essentially enabling the VEG experience and they're enabling the VEG experience because there is nothing in a vet hospital that happens without the vet assistant almost making sure that it does whether it's being with customers, giving them a hug, helping them out, whether it's cleaning the hospital, whether it's running blood, whether it's, you know, doing essentially anything to make the VEG experience and the VEG flow happen. Um I just, and since then David's first words to me have really rung true, which is, they are the glue in the hospital, they're making everything work and um I'm incredibly thankful for our vet assistants every week, every day, including this week especially um but on this week, especially appreciative for all the work that you all do. Um I've had a great chance to get to know somebody vet assistants over the years and I want to be an advocate for you um and give you the career um that you want and make sure that we enable your growth, here at VEG, so I appreciate you, love you happy Vet Assistant week thank you.
