(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.
