The new certification course, Human Animal Bond Certified, focuses on the the benefits of human-animal interaction and pet ownership and how they can be applied to veterinary practice. The program consists of a series of online modules put together by specialists from fields including human-animal interaction and veterinary medicine. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) serves as a founding educational partner for the program. Zoetis and Petco, both HABRI co-founders, as well as PetSmart Charities, are premier sponsors for the program.
“Human Animal Bond Certified will become the new gold standard for veterinarians looking to engage their clients in a meaningful and effective way. Through an easy online interface that can be completed at an individualized pace, the Certification will support every aspect of a veterinary practice, from better client dialogue and compliance to improved financial performance.”
— Tom Bohn, CEO, NAVC
