One of our goals here at The Cherry Ridge Veterinary Clinic has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and pet care.
Our team of veterinary technicians are all committed to CRVC’s mission statement to uphold high standards of patient care and client communication. Our technicians are responsible for assisting our doctors with diagnostics, treatments, and surgery. They also play a vital role in communicating and educating our clients about their pets.
Our technicians are all cross trained to work in various areas of the clinic. They are trained to work one-on-one with the doctor during procedures requiring anesthesia. They are responsible for monitoring our patients through prep, procedure, and recovery. They are responsible for the comfort of your pet during their stay in the hospital. They perform follow up calls checking on our patients after a procedure, answering any questions and reporting any concerns to the doctors. Behind the scenes they perform blood draws, in house diagnostic labs, fluid therapy administration, IV catheter placement, and treatments. They work with the doctors in the exam rooms, they obtain medical history, perform requested diagnostics, restrain the patient, administer appropriate treatments, gather prescribed medications and record the doctor’s findings in the medical record. Clients can also schedule surgery appointments with them.
Keeping our skills up to date is a critical process. Training is very important to CRVC. We have team meetings on a regular basis to discuss policy, protocol, new equipment, services and products and our technicians are required to complete 10 hours of continuing education yearly. They have the opportunity to attend veterinary continuing education seminars, where the latest techniques and skills are taught. Our team is continuously educated through continuing education lectures and in clinic meetings. This is to provide our clients and patients with the best health and long life. They are an indispensable asset to our team and take pride in their essential role at CRVC.

Madi joined CRVC in November of 2019 when she moved from Endicott, NY to Starlight, PA. Prior to coming to CRVC, Madi worked at veterinary hospitals in different parts of NY, and had been a head wrangler on a horse farm, managing a herd of 40+ horses. Madi grew up with dogs and cats her entire life, and had gotten into riding horses when she was about 6 years old. Growing up an avid animal lover, she always knew she wanted to help animals, which is how she got into the veterinary field. Madi now lives on her own little 10 acre farm with her boyfriend, Eric, and their two dogs (Nugget and Ellie), 2 cats (Stormy and Luna) and of course horses including Madi's very first horse, Sinatra. Madi's favorite part about working at CRVC is making connections with patients and clients, and being able to help animals stay healthy so they can live long, happy lives with their families.
