New Veterinary Model Practice Act – Response Needed!

To All Interested in Their Animal’s Care and Freedom of Chiropractors, Dentists, Massage Therapists to work on our animals:

Please read the attached.  The Veterinarians are starting their push again to take control of alternative/supportive animal therapies.  Please write a response.  It is possible that they will try to push legislation again in NJ.  If so, I’ll pull out my files and get a representative to promote our side of a Free Market of Services and Owners’ Control of how we spend our money to care for our animals “that we own.”  This latter part is very important as animals are our property.  If that ever changes, you can forget having control over their care!  Write with any questions!  This is a national effort by the AMVA.

A new model act is being written based on the existing 2003 model.  They are asking for public input until Feb. 14th 2011.

The 2003 model defines ALL methods and modes of relieving pain and preventing disease as being veterinary medicine (with a few exceptions … such as horseshoeing).

You may read and comment on changes to the 2003 model here: http://www.avma.org/issues/policy/mvpa.asp

  1. Chiropractors, dentist and equine massage therapists need to have the proper training and be allowed to work on horses..I’m a licensed massage therapist and cosmetologist, which is how I make a living, I took an equine massage class and the teachers were like doctors, the only way you could get in the class was to be a vet tech or licensed massage therapist. But the board of vets do not want us massaging horse after we’ve had the proper training, there are enough horses around for everyone to support their income. Please vets you need to be more opened minded and try the alternative therapies.

  2. Hello there, just became alert to your blog through Google,
    and found that it is really informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels.
    I will be grateful if you continue this in future. Many people will be benefited from
    your writing. Cheers!
