                 Welcome to AVTCP!                          

AVTCP is the ninth officially recognized veterinary technician specialty (VTS) and is modeled after the American Veterinary Medical Association accredited veterinary college, the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). Following the ABVP model, AVTCP has developed three initial species-specific categories, Canine/Feline, Exotic Companion Animal, and Production Medicine.

The credentialed veterinary technicians of the AVTCP are dedicated to providing superior, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care to clients and patients. Candidates are expected to be knowledgeable and demonstrate expertise in a broad range of clinical disciplines within their species specialty.

Without the generous support of our sponsors, we would not exist! Please check out the great work they do to support veterinary medicine!


Hill's repeated sponsorship to our academy is invaluable and so appreciated! Thanks to their support, our AVTCP lecture track at the ABVP conference in November is certain to be a success!  Thanks Hill's!


A HUGE thank you to our newest sponsors at Animal Hospital Supply!  As technicians, we particularly love their Baja Desert Breeze forced hot air warming unit.  It's a great product, and they are a great company!
