Protect scope of practice


More than ever before it is important for us to be heard as one voice. During 2021 we successfully opposed laws that would have increased lawsuits against veterinarians, outlawed oral and written prescriptions and compelled you to prepare your clients for euthanasia by describing the pros and cons of every available method.

We've already mentioned free CEs from your regional group, and the $90 discount at the conference.

We also offer an extensive range of affinity programs, many of which are with leading providers in the field.
