About Dr. Bryant:

Dr. Bryant’s veterinary career is not typical.  Upon graduating from veterinary college, she was torn between small animal clinical practice and veterinary pathology.  After being in clinical practice for one year, she decided to take steps toward becoming a veterinary pathologist.  She obtained additional veterinary pathology training and then joined the US Army for three years.  She then transferred to the US Public Health Service and held numerous positions related to animal and public health.  To further advance her skills, she completed an MPH degree through the University of Iowa MPH for Practicing Veterinarians program.  Upon retiring, she has been employed by Delta Air Lines as their industry first in-house veterinarian to review and revise policies related to the transportation of live animals.

Along her career pathway, Nelva obtained a unique skill set. Her knowledge of veterinary pathology, infectious and zoonotic diseases, veterinary public health, CDC’s dog importation regulations, international and national animal transportation regulations, and airline live animal transportation policies have made her an expert in the field of animal transportation.  As a consultant, she shares her observations at veterinary conferences and via webinars.  She also serves on numerous council/advisory boards.

Specialties: International and domestic travel of companion animals, CDC’s dog importation regulations, infectious and zoonotic diseases of animals, veterinary public health, animal welfare, veterinary consulting, and preventive veterinary medicine.
