State Animal Health Officials

GVL resources and services for SAHOs

At GVL, we bring passion and innovation to empower veterinarians to safeguard the health and well-being of animals worldwide.

Our software platform assists nearly 12,000 veterinarians in the US and Canada with their government and industry regulatory needs for the movement and health of animals and animal specimens.

October is SAHO month

With so many events being cancelled this year, we’re dedicating the month of October to SAHOs.

On the GVL blog, our product manager, Stacey Noe, describes the updates we’ve made to our software platform to help SAHOs do their job more efficiently.

SAHO Resources

ADT Reporting

Our quarterly data summaries for ADT reporting requirements, a free service for state animal health officials, is now available for download in the GVL platform.

Federal Accreditation

We require veterinarian users to have current information (last name and/or NAN) based on the National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP) website in order to sign CVIs, EIA tests, EECVIs and international health certificates.

Built-in State Rules

​​​We update movement requirements based on your state rules website. These built-in movement requirements in GVL help veterinarians quickly create accurate, compliant health certificates. Your state rules appear in the GVL platform and on our AnimalRegs.com interstate movement site.

7001 Forms

So many states no longer accept USDA APHIS 7001 forms as a valid health certificate, due to security concerns. We put together this information and resource for veterinarians to help them know their options for a valid, secure CVI with GVL.

Extended Equine CVIs

Acceptance of EECVI six month equine health certificates continues to grow among states, and over 1,000 EECVIs were completed in March. Veterinarians create an EECVI in GVL and submit it to their state animal health official, and provide owners with online access to retrieve their travel permits 24/7.

GVL Webinars

At GVL, we strive to provide education and awareness to the industry on relevant topics – from new regulations affecting animal health to solutions for helping ease interstate movement of animals. We facilitate webinars with thought leaders from the industry, often providing AAVSB RACE continuing education to help veterinarians and their staff meet their needs.
