Terry Honer, a doctor of veterinary medicine from Thousand Oaks, has maintained certification as a diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners specializing in canine and feline practice.
Honer is a Santa Ynez Valley Union High School graduate who previously practiced veterinary medicine in the Valley.
ABVP requires diplomates to maintain their certification every 10 years to demonstrate that they have kept up with changes and advancements in veterinary practice, Honer said.
Diplomates must pass an examination or accumulate credits from continuing education and other professional activities in order to maintain their certification.
Honer is a graduate of the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
She has practiced as a relief veterinarian in Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Oak Park, Camarillo, Calabasas and Simi Valley for more than 14 years and in other California cities as well as other states for more than 30 years.
She became an ABVP diplomate in 1998.
ABVP is one of 22 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 clinical practice by certifying specialists in 11 practice categories.
