The Texas Academy of Veterinary Practice (TAVP) is an organization within the Texas Veterinary Medical Association that promotes high standards of veterinary medicine through continuing education. Participation is completely voluntary. While the State Board of Texas only requires 17 hours of continuing education annually, members of TAVP are committed to obtaining a minimum of 50 hours annually. Of the approximately 3,500 veterinarians in Texas, less than 150 choose to participate in this program annually. All four of the veterinarians at the Holt Veterinary Clinic are current and participating members of The Texas Academy of Veterinary Practice. We believe that continuing education is one of the most important things that we can do for the health of your pet. Continuing education allows us to always be up to date and informed not only on the latest therapies and treatments for existing diseases, but also on the status of emerging diseases. We strive to always be on the forefront of veterinary medicine so that we may always provide the best possible care for your pet.
