Certification and Designation Series

– Our Rural Engagement Committee recognizes that specialties are not as accessible for RVTs in rural locations so they’ve put together a series that shares other designations and certifications that are accessible to RVTs. These certifications and designations will contribute to advancement of an RVT’s career and increase what a clinic can offer patients and clients. Learn about them along with us! Check out our social media.

Safety Snippets

– Our Workplace Guidelines Committee is excited to present another Safety Snippet. These snippets are shared regularly and are meant to provide a bit of safety education for veterinary professionals.
