Let your voice be heard! It is an exciting time in the career of Veterinary Technology. NAVTA is polling veterinary staff regarding two major issues directly affecting Veterinary staff across the nation. The first goal is to form a credentialing status that is identical in every state, whether you are currently an LVT, RVT or CVT.

The second is establishing a new name for our position. NAVTA wants to know what you think. Go to and take one of two surveys (NAVTA member and non-member) located in the update section.
