Veterinary toxicologists protect human and animal health in many ways.

Learn more about our members and organization. 

The American Board of Veterinary Toxicology (ABVT)

Established in 1967, the ABVT is one of 22 veterinary specialty organization recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association. It was the first professional organization to provide certification in the field of toxicology.  As a non-profit educational organization, the board administers a specialty certification examination to qualified veterinarians.  Our credentialing process ensures that animal and human lives will be protected by veterinarians with expertise in veterinary toxicology.

Board-certified veterinary toxicologists protect human and animal health. We inform and educate health professionals and the public about toxicologic hazards to pets, livestock, and wildlife. We work in academia, veterinary medical diagnostic laboratories, poison control centers, government agencies, industry, research laboratories, and private consulting firms.
