The North American Veterinary Community

Better care for animals everywhere.

It is with great pleasure that the NAVC Board of Directors and staff present you with the 2018 Annual Community Impact Report. The dreams we have to advance our profession and support each member of our veterinary community are becoming real year after year. None of what we do would be possible without our industry partners, supporters and each veterinary professional we serve. It is our hope that we continue to deepen our connections with one another as we embark on our journey toward providing better care for animals everywhere.
