Our staff has a team of five accredited veterinarians.
The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) promotes and recognizes the highest standards in the art and science of contemporary veterinary clinical practice. The Diplomates of ABVP have a common desire and willingness to deliver superior, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary veterinary service to the public. They are veterinarians who have demonstrated expertise in the broad range of clinical subjects relevant to their practice and display the ability to communicate medical observations and data in an organized and appropriate manner. Unlike other AVMA specialty boards, which are devoted to specific disciplines or organ systems, ABVP awards species-specific certification in these practice categories:
- Avian Practice
- Beef Cattle Practice
- Canine & Feline Practice
- Dairy Practice
- Equine Practice
- Feline Practice
- Food Animal Practice
- Swine Health Management
To ensure that certification is accessible to active practitioners, the accreditation procedure relies upon high quality, practice-related experience, in lieu of lengthy, institution-based, multi-year training programs. Formal postgraduate education is encouraged but not required. Nevertheless, the credentialing process is rigorous and demanding. Demonstration of a thorough mastery of the field is essential for achieving certification.
Cave Spring Veterinary Clinic is also accredited by The American Animal Hospital Association. The AAHA is the only organization to accredit companion veterinary hospitals. AAHA accredited hospitals hold themselves to a higher standard; pets are their passion, and keeping them healthy is their top priority. They strive to deliver excellent care for pets.
