Dr. Gail Golab, Head of AVMA Animal Welfare Division, Becomes First U.S. Veterinarian Credentialed in Animal Welfare
Date:10/1/2008

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Gail Golab, head of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Animal Welfare Division, traveled across the globe to achieve a top career goal -- to become America's first veterinarian credentialed in animal welfare.

Dr. Golab earned her membership level credential in the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists' (ACVSc) Animal Welfare Chapter on July 3, 2008. Australia is the only country that offers an animal welfare certification for veterinarians.

"We've long recognized and valued Dr. Golab's expertise and national recognition in animal welfare," says Dr. Ron DeHaven, chief executive officer of the AVMA. "This new certification from Australia adds international recognition and reflects positively on her as well as the overall level of expertise of the AVMA staff. We are very fortunate to have Gail, as well as other very talented and dedicated staff members at the AVMA."

Dr. Golab is the only American member of the ACVSc, as well as being the only American veterinarian within its Animal Welfare Chapter. Earning membership in the ACVSc Animal Welfare Chapter involved more than two years of study and successful completion of written and oral exams.

"I'd considered attempting to obtain this credential for some time and finally decided it was time to pursue it. Certainly there was hard work involved, but I've benefitted immensely from the experience," says Dr. Golab.

"My work at the AVMA was a real asset to my studies, because as head of the Animal Welfare Division I'm constantly exposed to and researching animal care practices affecting a variety of species across a range of uses," Dr. Golab adds. "I look forward to using the additional knowledge I have gained through this formal credentialing process to assist the AVMA in continuing to formulate rational and effective approaches to these complex issues."

"The importance of animal welfare is becoming increasingly
