Become an ABVP Specialist

Why Become an ABVP Specialist?

Certification takes dedication, adherence to high standards of practice and continuing education. It sets you apart – among the most ambitious, forward-thinking professionals in veterinary care, driven by a commitment to the wellbeing of animal and those who care for them. Certified veterinarians not only align themselves with the best practitioners in the field and have the opportunity to earn higher wages, but also receive:

  • An ABVP Diplomate Kit, consisting of promotional tools, career resources and networking connections
  • Exclusive networking opportunities
  • Monthly ABVP newsletters
  • Reduced ABVP Symposium registration
  • Promotional listing on the website

Most importantly, Diplomates have an accountability to the profession and promotion of excellence in practice. ABVP was founded in 1978 as a certification body for veterinary practitioners, led by passionate volunteers. As our Diplomates (certified practitioners) grew, so did our reputation and influence within the profession, providing an extraordinary opportunity to set the standard for excellence in veterinary care.
