Better care for animals everywhere.

It is with great pleasure that the NAVC Board of Directors and staff present you with the 2019 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.

Together is a wonderful thing.

Our Mission Statement

By developing forums for communication and connection, we fuel the spread of knowledge and innovation within our profession.
