We’ve been encouraging our members over the past several months to reapply by Aug. 2 for accreditation through the National Veterinary Accreditation Program. With the deadline rapidly approaching, Dr. DeHaven and I wanted to drop another reminder and urge you to reapply for this valuable program. Private practice veterinarians in the program play a critical role in ensuring animal health. Our country depends extensively on accredited veterinarians like you to carry out many of its animal health programs and services, including animal inspections, testing and certifications in both livestock and companion animals.
If you want to keep your accreditation and avoid having to go through supplemental training for reinstatement into the program, we strongly suggest that you start the renewal process today. Your involvement will go a long way toward making our first line of animal health defense even stronger.
