Our Accredited Clinic

abvpThe only DABVP (Canine and Feline Practice) doctors in Atlanta!

The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners was established in 1978. It is one of twenty-one veterinary specialty groups accredited by a special committee of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, a division of the American Veterinary Medical Association, to recognize excellence in the clinical practice through the certification of species-oriented specialists. Only about 900 veterinarians worldwide are certified in one of ABVP’s ten practice categories!

Briarcliff Animal Clinic has not one, but two, veterinarians who have been certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in Canine and Feline Practice. Dr. Peter Muller III and Dr. Elizabeth Busch mastered a rigorous and demanding application process and certification examination in order to obtain Diplomate status. To qualify to sit for the extensive, two-day examination, a veterinarian must complete either a residency program or six years of clinical veterinary practice. In addition, two case reports, references, descriptions of practice procedures, and professional education records must be submitted and pass review. Veterinarians who receive this certification, are experts in their field of veterinarian medicine! When you decide to take your pet to Briarcliff, you know they’re receiving the very best care available in the Atlanta area.
