WELCOME to ACVB!
The American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB) is the certifying board for veterinarians who are specialty trained to advance the behavioral health of animals through clinical practice, research, and science-based behavior education. Board-certified specialists are known as Diplomates.
Veterinary behaviorists are trained to address the relationships between an animal’s health, environment, experiences and its behavior. They have extensive knowledge of psychotropic medications, their uses, potential side effects and interactions with other medications, and are licensed to prescribe them when indicated.
The American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB) is pleased to announce that the Veterinary Behavior Symposium (VBS) will take place on June 10, 2020 in Baltimore, Maryland in conjunction with the American College of Internal Medicine Forum.
The Veterinary Behavior Symposium (VBS) is intended to provide a forum for sharing cutting-edge, original research in the field of animal behavior. This means more continuing education and options for attendees along with the opportunity to network with even more colleagues.
