I have been a member since 1985 and have appreciated the vision the founders had to provide the private practitioner with a better way to manage their inventory expenses. Almost 30 years later, VHA has expanded their role to include reliable cremation services, daily deliveries, the annual Expo, and many preferred service partners. It is great to have the ability to purchase in smaller quantities at competitive prices and receive a variety of rebates! VHA is a unique organization in the veterinary world. We need to continue our membership and support VHA’s efforts because we are the ultimate winners!
