 Administrative Rules Clear LCAR and are Approved

The Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules reviewed the Board of Veterinary Medicine's draft administrative rules and final comments in June.  The rules have been approved and are now in effect.  We will be working with the Office of Professional Development to create a Frequently Asked Questions document - keep an eye out for it in your inbox!




We Support the Maine Veterinary Medical Center

The VVMA Executive Board would like to express our full support for the Maine Veterinary Medical Center which was recently targeted by cyberbullies who threatened the personal safety and well-being of staff members over a dispute with a client.  It is extremely unfortunate that a reputable Vermont media company posted the original article on their Facebook page where the comments made about some of our Vermont veterinarians went well beyond the boundaries of civility.  Name-calling and threats have no place in public discourse.   If you, your staff, or your clinic have had to endure this kind of toxic bullying, please know that there are resources available to help manage the posts and keep your digital reputation intact.  AVMA and the AVMA Trust offer to members a free library of resources to manage their digital reputation which can be accessed here (you must be logged in to the AVMA website to see the resources).   If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.
