The American Veterinary Medical Association has launched a veterinary practice search tool for pet owners online at MyVeterinarian.com.
The website provides pet owners with detailed information about veterinary practices from around the country, including the clinic’s name, address, phone number and business hours; the medical services provided; the species of animal served; and the names of the veterinarians on staff.
Practices can also list their website address. A map is available to show the clinic’s location.
“Thousands of practices are listed on MyVeterinarian.com, and we’re adding more every day,” said Larry Kornegay, DVM, president of the AVMA and a companion animal practitioner from Houston. “Pet owners who visit our site can be assured that they are getting information from a trusted source that represents more than 81,500 veterinarians across the country.”
In addition, pet owners can search the site for specific health and pet care related topics, such as what clinics might offer dermatologic or behavior services, or where boarding and training is available.
There is also a link to the AVMA’s Animal Health page, which provides information related to general pet care, emergency and first aid resources.
