AVMA Begins Accepting Input On Model Veterinary Practice Act In January

A 30-day public comment period has been issued by the AVMA in order to gain public opinion on the MVPA.

The American Veterinary Medical Association will begin accepting comments on the Model Veterinary Practice Act (MVPA) on its website in January. The 30-day public comment period will be open to veterinarians, veterinary team members, pet owners, farmers and anyone else who has an interest in animals and veterinary medicine.

The AVMA first made the announcement in early November to give interested parties time to review the current model, which can be found here.

The MVPA, which was last reviewed in 2003, is used by state legislatures and state veterinary licensing and exam boards to help shape the rules and laws that govern the course of veterinary medicine, according to John Scamahorn, DVM, chair of the AVMA Model Veterinary Practice Act Task Force.
