Local Richmond veterinarian takes the helm as President of AVBP
Local veterinarian Dr. Amy Hoyumpa Vogt has been elected President of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) for 2013-2014.
Dr. Vogt now leads a national organization of over 900 veterinary specialists in ten practice categories. A practicing canine and feline veterinarian for almost 20 years, Dr. Vogt’s experience as a hospital owner and clinician provides her critical insight to drive the growth of this prestigious veterinary specialty organization.
Her goals are to improve ABVPs outreach to the animal owning public and veterinary colleagues to enhance the delivery of quality veterinary care at a national level.
Founded in 1978, The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) advances the quality of veterinary medicine through certification of veterinarians who demonstrate excellence in clinical practice. ABVP Diplomates are highly motivated veterinarians who chose to undergo a long and difficult process of additional studies and examination to become board certified specialists recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association.
These specialists have proven knowledge and expertise above and beyond what is required to practice veterinary medicine.
ABVP currently awards certification in 10 recognized veterinary specialties including Avian, Beef Cattle, Canine and Feline, Dairy, Equine, Exotic Companion Mammal, Feline, Food Animal, Reptile & Amphibian, and Swine Health Management. (www.abvp.com)
