Ross University

Ross University's School of Veterinary Medicine is more than a quarter-century old. Throughout our history, we have focused on excellence in veterinary education while expanding our St. Kitts campus and our network of American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accredited schools affiliated with Ross University where students complete their clinical education. More than 2,500 students have realized their calling through Ross University. Much has changed over that time, but not our commitment to meeting the highest standards of the veterinary profession.

We're Back from the AAHA/OVMA Conference!

AAHA Conference

The AAHA/OVMA Yearly Conference took place in Toronto, Ontario on March 24 - 27, and NAVTA was proud to be one of the exhibitors for this exciting event.


We were also thrilled at the opportunity to meet and network with lots of fantastic NAVTA members as well as welcome many new members (technicians, assistants, veterinarians and industry partners) to our organization. We met numerous OVTA members and are pleased to welcome those technicians that see the value that our organization can offer them, too. We welcome them to NAVTA.
