    The Michigan Animal Health Foundation (MAHF) has a new Companion Animal Fund which will begin accepting applications for funding April 1, 2017.

    The Companion Animal Fund is a service to MVMA members that subsidizes non-elective treatment to a select group of pet owners. In order to qualify for funding, pet owners must:

    • Be otherwise unable to pay for treatment
    • Be a current client of a veterinary hospital with an animal being treated by a member of the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association
    • Be under the federal poverty level, on Medicaid or on WIC (Women Infants & Children)

    MVMA veterinary hospitals are eligible to receive up to $500 per client and a total of up to $500 per clinic/hospital. Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis until the year’s supply has run out and will begin again at the start of the next year. We hope to expand both funding and eligibility in the future and increase the total funds allotted per clinic/hospital.

    As this is an MVMA member service, funding applications must be completed and submitted by veterinary staff and signed by an MVMA member. Applications will not be accepted from pet owners. Click here for a fund application and other information needed to apply. Note that you will need to log into the MVMA website to access this information. If you need assistance logging in, please email us at mvma@michvma.org.

    Are you a practice owner? If so, have you told us? We've contacted the practice owners shown in our database about this survey but if you are a practice owner and haven’t updated your record, we hope you will. Login to MichVMA.org to update your information with us to make sure you receive the latest news and information from the MVMA. Please contact us at mvma@michvma.org if you need your login information. 

    If you are a practice owner, you should have received the link to complete MVMA's Compensation and Benefits Survey earlier today. This comprehensive survey asks questions about the compensation and benefits offered to your associates and practice team (practice managers, technicians, assistants and front office staff). It also examines several other areas (type of practice, years in practice, location, etc.). Survey results will allow MVMA members to evaluate their compensation and benefit policies compared to those of other MVMA members. 

    We are asking the owner and/or practice manager to complete this survey online to help us compile the data more efficiently by March 31. If you have not received the link, please contact us at mvma@michvma.org

    Please have compensation information for your veterinarians and staff available to you when you begin the survey, as well as information about medical and retirement plans, if applicable.

    The more data we can collect from Michigan practices, the better information we will have to share with you!
