Dear AETA Members,

In San Antonio, the membership requested the board to form a committee to develop a position statement regarding embryo transfer and veterinary medicine.  The committee’s recommendation to the board was that embryo transfer is a veterinary act.  The board considered the committee’s recommendation and adopted this position statement:

“The American Embryo Transfer Association considers embryo transfer procedures to be the practice of veterinary medicine.  Embryo transfer necessitates the use of prescription pharmaceuticals within a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship.  The AETA code of ethics obligates its membership to be in compliance with the veterinary practice acts of the states in which they practice.”

The AETA is not a regulatory body.  The adoption of this position statement does not change membership levels or requirements for AETA members.  The AETA maintains its commitment to education and high standards of performance.
