Oregon Veterinary Technician & Assistant Association

Who We Are

The OVTAA was formed in June of 2005. Our mission is to promote the profession of veterinary medical support staff and foster recognition and understanding of the roles of Veterinary Technicians and Assistants in the State of Oregon. The OVTAA is a non-profit organization led by volunteers eager to give back to the community.
