Veterinary Associations

Organizations whose members are veterinary care providers who have affiliated for the purpose of promoting mutual interests, participating in veterinary seminars and conferences, networking with their peers, subscribing to veterinary journals and other publications, and taking advantage of other opportunities for professional development. Many veterinary associations set standards which relate to the qualifications and performance of members, accept and investigate complaints from the public regarding the practices of members and maintain referral services through which residents who require veterinary assistance are referred to members. Included are associations of animal hospitals and specialized veterinarian associations whose members treat a particular species of animal or animal-related disease.
