What is an AVCA certified doctor?
- The AVCA states that “certification is a voluntary process by which a non-government entity grants a time-limited recognition and use of a credential to an individual after verifying that he/she has met predetermined and standardized criteria. Certification is distinct from licensure in that it is voluntary and requires re-certification to maintain the credential.”
- The AVCA is the primary national credential for animal chiropractic in North America
- The practitioner must be either a DC or DVM in order to attain certification. Both professions have contributed to the growth of animal chiropractic.
