What Members are Saying

“The SBVVMA is an organization that fosters a feeling of togetherness and amplifies it locally. Like a large family, the SBVVMA creates a warm and welcoming environment where all veterinarians in the community can fellowship, commiserate, and network with each other. It’s professionally bolstering  to discuss topical issues, review difficult cases, and examine ideas with colleagues.  Every meeting is filled with like-minded professionals including veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and veterinary practice managers who endeavor to improve both animal and human health particularly within our community.”
