About NAVTA


"The mission of NAVTA is to represent and promote the profession of veterinary technology. NAVTA provides direction, education, support and coordination for its members and works with other allied professional organizations for the competent care and humane treatment of animals."


The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) was formed in East Lansing, Mich., in 1981 with the goal of allowing veterinary technicians to give input on national issues involving the veterinary profession. Hill's Pet Nutrition was their first corporate sponsor. Since then, NAVTA has grown and seen many successes, including the declaration of National Veterinary Technician Week, the formation of the Committee on Veterinary Technician Specialties, the development of a scholarship program and much more.

  • To be a part of the decision-making process that affects our members
  • To foster high standards of veterinary care
  • To promote the veterinary health care profession

Whether you are a highly experienced veterinary technician or a newcomer to the veterinary health care profession, the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America has something to offer you.
