Call for Mentorship

The TVMA Certified Veterinary Assistant (CVA) program is looking for DVM or Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT) mentors for high school CVA applicants. This program allows high school students to gain exposure to veterinary medicine and graduate with a veterinary assistant certification. These high school students need to complete 300 hands-on hours in hospital training, performing skills such as but not limited to:

  • Handling and holding animals
  • Bathing/dipping patients
  • Handling sharps 
  • Administering hydrotherapy
  • Large animal skills
  • Follows OSHA guidelines
  • Collecting free catch urine
  • Cleaning surgical equipment

Mentors are so important to give these students one-on-one guidance, and being a mentor is a great way to gain leadership experience.

Some schools are finding it challenging to locate veterinary hospitals that can take one to two students for these hands-on hours. If you would like to pass on your knowledge and help train future assistants, please contact TVMA Director of Credentialing Larisa Respondek at lrespondek@tvma.org or 512-610-6652

Honorary CVA Certification Awarded

During April and May, it gets pretty hectic in the credentialing department at TVMA. High Schools from far and wide are testing students to become Certified Veterinary Assistants (CVAs). This year, during high school testing, I received a phone call from the Agricultral Science teacher at A&M Consolidated High School. She had just submitted a stack of applications for testing and was calling to let me know that one of them did not need to be submitted. One of the students had passed away. The student’s name was Kristen Schuler.

A few months later, I had the honor of speaking with Kristen’s mother, Stephanie. She raved about her daughter and all of the lasting impressions that this young girl left on many hearts. Kristen was an overachiever who always had a smile on her face. She was involved in FFA, 4-H, equine and livestock judging and photography, to name a few hobbies. While going to school, she worked for Dr. Jamie Britton at Bee Creek Veterinary Hospital in College Station. Her mom stated that Dr. Britton was not only a mentor to Kristen but also inspired her. Bee Creek Veterinary Hospital has started a Kristen Schuler Memorial Fund to help cover costs for patient services that their owners can’t afford. The one thing that Mrs. Schuler wanted me to mention in this article was, “There are young kids out there that need a chance. Thank you to all of the ag teachers and veterinarians that go above and beyond to mentor these kids.” TVMA is very proud to present an honorary CVA certification to Kristen Schuler.

RVT/LVT Handover Still in Progress

The Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners recently informed TVMA that they still have approximately 400 LVT applicants to process. Please be patient during this transition. Even though your LVT application was submitted by the due date of August 31 and there are no issues with the background check, it may be several more weeks before all pending LVT applicants are licensed.

September 2014

LVT Inquiries Should Now Be Made to State Board

The Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) program managed by the Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) officially ended on August 31, and the opportunity for any RVT in good standing with TVMA to apply for licensure to the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (TSBVME) under the grandfather clause by August 31 is now closed. A new law was passed by the 83rd Legislature that authorizes the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to license and regulate veterinary technicians/LVTs. Please contact TSBVME directly at 512/305-7555 or email vet.board@tbvme.state.tx.us. for updates on LVT applications submitted prior to the August 31 deadline or for information on the LVT program.

As of September 1, an individual may not use the term “LVT” or refer to themselves as a Licensed Veterinary Technician without a license. Giving the impression that one holds a license is against the law. A license to work as a veterinary technician is not mandatory; however, it is an option available to all technicians who meet State Board requirements to become licensed in Texas.

July 2014

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL TX RVTs

Please note that AUGUST 31 is the final cut-off date for all Texas RVTs current on dues and CE with TVMA to apply for licensure with the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (TBVME). If an RVT in good standing with TVMA does not apply to the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners by August 31, they will not be grandfathered in as an LVT but will have to go through the TBVME exam process and meet their requirements in order to become licensed in Texas.
The LVT application is available at http://www.tbvme.state.tx.us/. Please review the info on www.tvma.org before contacting TVMA for RVT ID numbers, issue and expiration dates and letter of good standing. TBVME is working directly with TVMA to obtain verification of current registration for technicians to be eligible to gain a license via the grandfathering clause. The registration number and issuance date is located on your RVT certificate. If you have lost your certificate, your registration number is available on the “List of Current RVTs” located on the right-hand side of the RVT page at www.tvma.org. The issuance date will be provided to TBVME with your verification letter. The RVT expiration date is 8/31/2014. If you have any other questions regarding the LVT application, please contact TBVME directly at 512/305-7555 or vet.board@tbvme.state.tx.us.

CE Opportunity for RVTs and CVAs

Coastal Bend Veterinary Medical Association (CBVMA) is offering a meet-and-greet dinner meeting with three hours of CE on Thursday, July 10, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Red Lobster, 5825 S.

Dr. Pancho Hubert will give an update on the upcoming CE by the Sea meeting in September. The dinner and CE is open to all veterinarians, technicians and practice/office managers. The cost for non-members will be $40, and the cost for staff of CBVMA members will be $25 for this meeting. Please RSVP to CBVMA Coordinator Kristi Woodall at 361/992-9731 or kwoodallwpah@stx.rr.com.

RVT State Exam Reminder

Just a reminder that the final RVT exam administered by TVMA is scheduled on Friday, June 20, in Austin. The application form and more info can be found at www.tvma.org. The Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners has agreed that as long as a graduate of an AVMA-accredited veterinary technician school takes and passes the TVMA State Exam in June 2014, receives a passing score on the July/August VTNE and has met all requirements to become an RVT with TVMA prior to August 31, the State Board will allow such individuals to be grandfathered in as Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVTs), even if the individual’s July/August VTNE score is not received at TVMA until after the grandfathering deadline.

Important update on the TVMA RVT June 2014 State Exam

Verification was received from the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (TSBVME) that as long as a graduate of an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)-accredited veterinary technician school takes and passes the TVMA State Exam in June 2014, receives a passing score on the July/August Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) and has met all requirements to become an RVT with TVMA prior to August 31, the State Board will allow such individuals to be grandfathered in as Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVTs) even if the individual’s July/August VTNE score is not received until after the August 31 grandfathering deadline.

On the other hand, if someone is now an RVT in good standing with TVMA but does not apply to the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners by August 31, they will not be grandfathered in but will have to go through the State Board exam process and meet the requirements set out in the rules the board recently adopted.
