...So what are you? And what are our pets? Picking a healthful diet can be difficult. There are many to choose from, many with catchy labels and claims of great nutritional content. Websites, salespeople, friends and family all give their suggestions. They share facts, information, and experiences – all with the best intentions for your pet. Honestly, many statements they say are true – but some are not, or are only partly true. In this world of instant information and sensational advertising, how do we choose what is best for our pets? Our pets don't get to choose what they eat, so it is extremely important that owners continue to be educated and informed about pet food, and proper nutrition. Consider your pet’s individual needs, and always, always, always, consult with your veterinarian-their primary concern is your pet’s health.
Tom Page is a Certified Veterinary Technician with 25 years of experience in Dentistry, Surgery, Patient Care, team training, and inventory management. Prior to joining the team at Altitude Veterinary Hospital, Tom graduated from Bel Rea Institute of Animal Technology in 1995. Tom is currently transitioning into a new position as our Treatment Area Supervisor. This new position will ensure and oversee the specialized care each patient receives while hospitalized, or receiving surgical or dental services. Tom will be essential to the leadership and training of all team members, and the elevation of care for all our patients.
Tom has assisted with community programs, working with Natrona County, and Kelly Walsh High Schools Job shadowing program, helping students understand and experience the possibilities of a career in Veterinary Medicine.
In addition to his successful career at Altitude Veterinary Hospital, Tom is now engaged in several programs outside of the hospital. He is the President (2018-2019) for the Wyoming Veterinary Technician Association. As the President, his goals include reaching out to the Certified Technicians, Assistants, and students in the state to improve opportunities for continuing education, and networking to get others involved in the profession.
Tom is working towards obtaining a Veterinary Technician Specialty in Veterinary Dentistry. This is a two year program requiring continuing education, and working with Board Certified Veterinary Dentistry professionals out of state. As a part of his study, he is maintaining records of cases in different divisions including Periodontics, Endodontics, Prosthodontics and Radiology, to name a few. He will also be writing peer-reviewed, publishable articles during his course of study.
Tom and his wife of 26 years (Tracy) enjoy spending time with their daughter Samantha, son-in-law Kris, and three grandchildren: Amathyst, Domanic, and Lily. Tom and Tracy have one furry pet named Abby. Tom enjoys hunting, camping, motorcycle riding, and is now training for the 50k Big Horn Mountain Trail Run in June of 2018.
