A Specialty Clinic is a type of veterinary practice that provides for:
1. the examination, diagnosis and/or treatment of animals, and/or
2. consultation with clients regarding their animals, on the basis of an off-premise event.
A Specialty Clinic encompasses ophthalmology, preventative health and rabies clinics or other similar types of relevant practice.
To qualify for a Specialty Clinic the practice must also have a Small Animal Ambulatory Practice Inspection.
The MVMA’s Practice Inspection and Practice Standards Bylaws require veterinarians to notify the MVMA about a Specialty Clinic prior to the event being held.
