Dear Veterinary Colleague,

Since 1991, the New York State Association of Veterinary Technicians (NYSAVT) has advocated for the licensed veterinary technician in New York State. With the assistance of our members and support of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) and its members, we have seen the passage of mandatory continuing education and increased awareness of the profession.

NYSAVT represents more than 4,000 licensed veterinary technicians in our state and are asking for your pledge to continue to support the important role they play on the veterinary healthcare team.

We have launched a consumer awareness campaign to clarify the role of the licensed veterinary technician and encourage dialogue among licensed veterinary technicians, veterinarians and their clients. Supporting your licensed veterinary technicians supports the entire veterinary profession. We hope that you will join us in this initiative to protect and advance the profession.

Please sign your name on the back of this letter to stand with NYSAVT and other members of the veterinary healthcare community in showing your support, commitment and pledge to the profession in New York State.  When you return your signed proclamation of support to NYSAVT, we will include your name, practice address and a link to your practice on our website as a thank you for your commitment to our technicians and their importance.

Enclosed please find information collected from AVMA, NYSVMS, and NYSAVT regarding the importance of the licensed veterinary technician.

Thank you for your continued support of NYSAVT and all licensed veterinary technicians.
