The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and the American College of Veterinary Surgeons have launched as an education and awareness resource for animal owners. The new website is one of the most comprehensive searchable databases of board-certified veterinary specialists, enabling animal owners to find local specialists for potential consultations.

  • A directory of board-certified veterinary specialists.
  • An article library of small and large animal diseases, conditions, treatments, and procedures, authored by veterinary specialists.
  • Information about the training and credentials of veterinary specialists.
  • Questions animal owners can discuss with their primary care veterinarian about an animal’s signs.

Dr. Zachary M. Wright of Animal Diagnostic Clinic in Dallas explains, “Consumers know where to look online to find their own medical care options. Our goal with is to create that same familiarity so that animal owners know when to talk about an animal’s symptoms and conditions with their primary care veterinarians, and review options for specialty care.”
