The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners was established in 1978. It is one of twenty-two veterinary specialty groups accredited by a special committee of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, a division of the American Veterinary Medical Association, to recognize excellence in clinical practice through the certification of species-oriented specialists. Over 900 veterinarians worldwide are certified in one of ABVP’s twelve practice categories: 1) Avian, 2) Beef Cattle, 3) Canine and Feline, 4) Dairy Cattle, 5) Equine, 6) Exotic Companion Mammal, 7) Feline, 8) Fish, 9) Food Animal, 10) Reptile and Amphibian, 11) Shelter Medicine, and 12) Swine Health Management.
