Ask us to help
Every day we answer our members’ questions about navigating NY laws and regulations. Often we get involved on your behalf, talking to NYSED about licensing issues, or getting our social media experts involved to help you through a crisis. We have both an HR consultant and a lawyer available when needed. Don’t hesitate to ask for help when you need it.
What makes sense to animal lovers can sometimes be a disaster for veterinary professionals. It is critically important for veterinarians to be part of the discussion that shapes NY State law. Without our work NY might already award owners emotional damages for the loss of a pet, driving up the cost of veterinary care and reducing the ability of veterinarians to offer solutions that work
Diversity & Equity
How do you feel about the low representation of people of color in the veterinary industry? We want the veterinary industry of the future to be as diverse as the people we serve. Most veterinarians choose their vocation when they are very young. That’s why we are working in elementary schools in racial diverse school districts to inspire young students of color to become a veterinarian.
