WHO WE ARE
In 2018 a concerned group of equine veterinarians, industry representatives, and ranch owners met in Stillwater, Oklahoma, to discuss ongoing trends in the equine industry today as well as how they may affect the industry in the future. As a result of this meeting, a group of motivated individuals heard the battle cry and formed the organization, Veterinarians Encouraging & Teaching (V.E.T.). V.E.T. is a 501c3 non-profit organization focused on enhancing relationships between veterinary students, private practice, and academia through social events, clinical skills wet labs, and mentorship avenues.
As an organization, we aid the equine community by offering the following services and resources:
- Clinical Skills Wet Labs
- “Pathways to Success” Career Symposium
- Outreach Opportunities and Networking Page
- C.E. Opportunities (Live and On Demand)
- Scholarships and Financial Assistance for Students
- Tackling Social Media Page
- Practice Ownership Empowerment and Knowledge
- And much much more …
Despite this organization being in its infancy, we are humbled not only by its success, but by the realization communicated to us by the equine community for its necessity. V.E.T. has offered its services at zero cost to veterinary students and equine veterinarians/hospitals since day one since we are funded solely by private donations and sponsorships from within the industry. The organization’s goal is to remain available as a free resource and service to the equine community with the generosity of continued support, donations, and sponsorships from individuals and/or businesses such as yourselves.
With only 1.3% of graduating veterinary students entering the equine field today, it is imperative that we put a strong focus on the recruitment and retention of interested and capable individuals for our field to survive. V.E.T. is passionate about our futures and the future of this industry. Please join us in the fight to not only survive, but to thrive.
Where We Can Be Found
In previous years, we have only provided our services to Oklahoma and Texas. Going forward, we will expand our footprint and outreach to include Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arkansas and Louisiana.
