We are looking for bloggers!  

NAVTA recently started working on a blog. Currently, you can find it here. Our first two posts include a story about a technician's work in Joplin and a short history of veterinary technology as it celebrates its 50th birthday. If you have any suggestions for a blog post or would like to become a NAVTA blogger, email with your ideas!


Send us your Joplin stories!   

In June, NAVTA issued a call to action for all members to help with disaster relief efforts in Joplin, MO. If you participated in the relief efforts, please email to share your story. You can read the first story that we have received from Randy Wilson, BS, CVT, here on our new NAVTA blog.
