Press Release

Life-long learning is the backbone for professional success and continued professional growth is only possible with quality continuing education. Veterinarians are no stranger to these concepts. The animal care industry is experiencing record growth and pet parents are demanding quality care and professional standards. The Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC) requires all credentialed professionals to complete continuing education to maintain certification and professional standards, however quality CE for animal care can be scarce. But this is the 21st century, and the PACCC recognizes the value of technology! “Chats with the Chatfields”, one of the most popular veterinary podcasts, is the first streaming show approved for CE by the PACCC! Now, PACCC-certified professionals can check the show notes to confirm episode approval, listen or watch the show to obtain the PACCC code and earn quality CE towards certification maintenance for free while laughing at the veterinary hosts’ antics.

The first episodes carrying PACCC approval codes are already LIVE on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Pandora, and on all the podcast directories! Additionally, for more visual folks, episodes can always be found on Youtube at or find all things “Chats…” at

The Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC) non-profit organization created by a team of industry experts to recognize high quality providers and help them meet the challenge of educating pet parents on the value of a pet care provider’s investment in education and training. Independent certification, using testing from industry developed standards, clearly identifies the premier professional animal care providers in our industry. Both providers and pet parents benefit from the implicit distinctions a reputable and objective third party certification provides. PACCC awards three levels of certification to recognize the expansive knowledge required and basic career levels in the industry: Certified Professional Animal Care Provider (CPACP), Certified Professional Animal Care Manger (CPACM), and Certified Professional Animal Care Operator (CPACO). All PACCC Certified Professionals are bound by a Code of Ethics that ensures the well-being of the pet always comes first and that business practices are conducted with ethics, morals and integrity.
