The Federation of Veterinarians of Europe
(FVE) was founded in 1975. Today, we represent 46 national veterinary organizations across 38 European countries and 4 vibrant Sections, each of which represents key groups within our profession: Practitioners (UEVP), Hygienists (UEVH), Veterinary State Officers (EASVO) and Veterinarians in Education, Research and Industry (EVERI).
The European Veterinary profession, embodied by FVE, strives to promote animal health, animal welfare and public health across Europe.
Together with its members, FVE aims to support veterinarians in delivering their professional responsibilities at the best possible level, recognised and valued by society.
Further to their high education and training, and through the application of their specific knowledge of animals and related technical skills, veterinarians contribute – in a unique way – to the prevention and control of health and welfare issues in animals, including wildlife and related human health problems. Veterinarians therefore are experts in the field of animal health, animal welfare and public health.
“Veterinarians care for animals and people!”
“In December 2014-January 2015, a collaboration between the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) and IVSA produced a survey aimed at how veterinary students around the world view the quality of their education and outlook on the job market after graduation. With the help of this and future surveys, our organizations are working together to analyze the future veterinary labor market in order to explore opportunities for vets and secure a healthy future for our profession. Check out the results of our survey to see out what we found!”
