I’m a Vet Tech, I Can’t Fix Crazy, But I Can Sedate it – Ultra Cotton Ladies T-Shirt

Yes, any experienced Vet Tech can inform you that there will always be at least one crazy patient that you will have to handle at any given time. Fortunately, modern veterinary science can solve this problem (for real) by sedating patients who are going berserk in the clinic. Otherwise, you might need the sedation yourself after your work shift, so you don’t go crazy too.

This shirt is made from cotton and is available in ladies sizes S, M, L, XL, and 2XL. You might want to buy a few just for yourself, in different colors, as your day clothes (to remind yourself that veterinary is really your life).

The world will be a much better place when all pet owners opt to neuter rather than leave their pets to their own inclinations.

Do buy many of these T-shirts to gift to your friends and family when special occasions pop up. Anyone’s birthday approaching? No problem, just give them this T-shirt in the most appropriate color. Are you excited about Vet Tech Week? So are we! We’d love to see you gift a colleague with one of these too! Just let the shirt do the talking for you.

Don’t Argue With Me, I Neuter For a Living – Women’s V-Neck T-Shirt

But you don’t have to put up with that when you’re wearing this shirt. It’s bound to make some sit back and think first before saying anything. (Or at least make them laugh and relax).

If you have a special someone in mind, this shirt could well be worth your time and attention. Gift this shirt in ladies sizes S, M, L, XL, or 2XL.

So aside from Vet Techs, you have veterinary receptionists, veterinary assistants, and veterinarians, to name a few. The other factor is that this shirt is unisex in sizing. So take your pick amongst all the sizes and colors offered.

I Remembered Your Dog’s Name… – Unisex T-Shirt

The nice part is that you needn’t worry so much about it. You can be sure that some of your colleagues have been through something similar at some point. Help a co-worker feel that it’s their Vet Tech appreciation week by gifting this shirt to them. Since the shirt comes in a wide array of colors and sizes, you don’t have to give the same color and size each and every time.

If I Can’t Bring My Dog, I’m Not Going – Unisex Tee

Yes, this is something almost every dog owner has experienced at some point – you’re invited to attend a swanky event somewhere nice, but…they don’t allow pets in their place. Of course, you can decide not to go – though some people may be torn since it’s not every day you get a dinner invitation. The solution? Buy this shirt.

Okay, so that’s not really the right solution, but it’s funny, right? This shirt is an excellent idea, though, to give any dog owner since they’re the ones who can relate well to it. Then, of course, you can gift it to your colleagues though even ordinary folk may see the humor behind it too. It’s one of those Vet Tech appreciation week ideas that will outlast passing up a formal dinner.

Bolus The Propofol – Unisex T-Shirt

This item is definitely a conversation starter and is suitable for anyone who wants to celebrate National Vet Tech Week forever. No, that part is a joke, but it’s funny how those in the veterinary profession may lapse into vet jargon even while conversing with laypeople. You will really stand out in the crowd when you wear this shirt while mingling with ordinary pet owners.

Veterinary students may also like it for those days when they want to be noticed on campus in casual wear. The shirt is unisex in sizing and a perfect gift for your future colleagues who wish to proclaim their profession without being too far out in their taste.

Pre-Vet Student – Unisex Tee

Would you be a billionaire by now if the world donated one dollar for every animal you helped in your pre-vet days? Possibly. Some pre-vet students really have a passion for their profession. Admittedly though, veterinary professions can be quite expensive to pursue, so pre-vet students may really be half-joking when they ask for donations. Hence, this shirt.

Realistically, pre-vet students really have to be immersed in their profession. Therefore, they may welcome Vet Tech appreciation week ideas like this shirt which highlights how devoted pre-vet students and others in the veterinary field are. If you’d like to honor a pre-vet student you work with in a clinic, this shirt is a great option.

We Work in Veterinary Medicine – Ultra Cotton Ladies T-Shirt

One stereotype is that “real ladies” don’t like icky stuff like handling pet slobber and bodily fluids. Well, guess again, folks – women in the veterinary profession accept the “icky stuff” as just part of their job. That’s why there are so many fantastic female professionals who help in animal health care. You can buy this shirt to gift to a female friend or co-worker.

This shirt may be so well-loved that veterinary professionals may wear it out by using it so often. If they ask where they can purchase a shirt just like it, don’t hesitate to refer us to them! We sell this shirt in a variety of sizing and color options too. Veterinary Medicine is the right field for anyone excited to be involved in Vet Tech Week more intimately.

I Sold The Dog on Craigslist – Ladies Tee

The message on this Vet Tech week shirt brings the “cat from hell” concept closer to home, doesn’t it? But face it, cats do require a bit of maintenance. And if your cat seems to be eyeing the family dog a bit too intensely, it may be time to change your cat’s login credentials. Better safe than sorry.

In reality, cats can be harder to bring in for a check-up, so Vet Tech staff may find the experience worth highlighting through a shirt. If you think some veterinary colleagues seem to be covered in scratches more often than they’re comfortable with, cheer them up with this message. You can opt to buy more than one shirt for your friends and for yourself too. 

Dogs Make Me Happy… – Unisex T-Shirt

Not everyone is a dog lover – but they should be. After all, no one can replicate the joy that a trusting mutt can bring, especially when the owner brings their dog to the clinic for its check-up. And yes, a true dog person can be spotted by how they treat dog patients in the clinic. So, if you’re a bonafide cat person, you may find enthusiasm about this shirt to be a bit much.

Seriously though, isn’t it great that shirts like this exist? Finally, you get a shirt in the colors that appeal to you, plus sizing is unisex. So don’t hesitate to pick between S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL, and 6XL when you are looking for a good gift during Vet Tech appreciation week. You may like the shirt so much you’ll even buy one or more for yourself. That’s progress.

Stubborn Dachshund Tricks White Coffee or Tea Mug

Do you love dachshunds? Some people may like dachshunds since they’re so small and cuddly. Others may adore short dogs because they look funny. Well, according to this mug, dachshunds are bright yet stubborn pets that present a problem – how does a dog owner teach tricks to stubborn dachshunds? The answer? You don’t.

You can at least appreciate the humor behind this mug’s message while you have some coffee to soothe your frazzled nerves. Face it; dachshunds will only do what they please.

When It’s Freezing Outside, Large Animal Vet – Joke White Coffee or Tea Mug

Well, that’s just the way it is sometimes with cows. But, of course, you might actually welcome the birthing if you’ve got a pretty good mug with some great coffee to wake you up enough to undertake the task.

This mug is one-of-a-kind since it only comes in one color. But you can take on more beverages aside from coffee with this mug. Fancy hot choco? No problem. Tea makes you more in the zone?

But, of course, that only works with clients torn between showering their cat with love or kissing their dog instead.

Is kissing a cat a good idea? It might be if the cat really likes you or is under sedation. Vet Techs like you shouldn’t let just any cat dominate your life – after all, there are lots of cats out there. But once in a while, you may encounter a cat who really likes you back – then it might be safe to kiss it. Just be sure you have quick reflexes if the cat suddenly turns feral.

And since it’s National Vet Tech Week, maybe you can gift one of these mugs to yourself? It might make you feel better.

Actually, the whole point is to acknowledge the vital role of those in the veterinary profession, including vet students and Vet Tech professionals. You might not be a pencil pusher, but your job is equally vital for the well-being of both pets and pet owners. Yet even if no one recognizes your efforts, at least this mug may make you smile amidst so much chaos in the clinic.
