Supporting the Veterinary Technician Profession
The North Carolina Association of Veterinary Technicians (NCAVT) began as a small group of dedicated veterinary medical technicians in the Wake County area in the early 1980s. The number of members grew to 62 in 1987 and became the North Carolina Association of Veterinary Technicians. In 1992-93, officers of the NCAVT were instrumental in helping Bill 747 pass in the NC General Assembly. The bill essentially kept the North Carolina Veterinary Practice Act from becoming open to individuals who had not graduated from an AVMA accredited program of veterinary medical technology and successfully completed the National Veterinary Technician Exam and State Boards. In 2010, the NCAVT Board of Directors assisted with the NC Rabies Law Amendment, which allows Registered Veterinary Technicians to administer the rabies vaccine under the direct supervision of a licensed veterinarian. After much determination, dedication, and support from its members, NCAVT became a non-profit organization in 2014.
