About the ABVP Diplomate Designation

As the proprietor of Elmhurst Animal Care Center, Dr. Joel Todd Leroy Prince continues a 30-year-long career in veterinary medicine. Dr. Joel Todd Leroy Prince is a diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP).

Fewer than 1,000 professionals worldwide are ABVP diplomates. The accolade recognizes veterinarians who have dedicated themselves to the profession and who demonstrate professional knowledge that exceeds the expertise of their contemporaries. Because the ABVP diplomate typically has completed more training than non-diplomate veterinarians, the diplomate’s clients can expect their pets to receive a higher quality of care.

The process of becoming an ABVP diplomate takes at least three years to finish. Those who apply for eligibility must have the proper education credentials, complete at least six years of clinical practice before taking the diplomate examination, and evince strong moral and ethical behavior. Moreover, veterinarians must have a recognized veterinary specialty such as food animal and dairy practice, equine practice, or reptile and amphibian practice.
