The National Assn. of Veterinary Technicians in America has added three specialty academies: the neurology subspecialty of the Academy of Internal Medicine Veterinary Technicians, the Academy of Veterinary Zoological Medicine Technicians and the Academy of Equine Veterinary Nursing Technicians.

Academy representatives were announced at the American Veterinary Medical Assn.'s annual convention, which took place July 11-14 in Seattle, Wash.

  • Deborah Reeder, RVT, Amy Butzier, CVT, and Sharon Kaiser-Klingler, RVT, are representatives for the equine specialty.
  • Bonnie Soule, CVT, is the representative for the zoological specialty.
  • Linda Merrill, LVT, is the representative for AIMVT-neurology.

“The NAVTA Academies give veterinary technicians recognition for having advanced education, training and experience in an area of specialization,” said Butzier, chairwoman of the NAVTA Committee on Veterinary Technician Specialties.

NAVTA also recognizes specialties in dentistry, anesthesia, internal medicine, behavior and emergency and critical care.
