Our Mission ...

The Society for Veterinary Medical Ethics was founded in 1994 by a group of veterinarians, biomedical researchers and academics to promote discussion and debate about ethical issues arising in and relevant to veterinary practice.


Key Objectives ...

The major objectives of the SVME are:
  • to encourage ethical practices and professional behavior of veterinarians in all aspects of the profession
  • to increase the understanding of the philosophical, social, moral and ethical values encountered by the veterinary profession
  • to sponsor seminars and other presentations on ethics and values at local, state, regional and national meetings of veterinarians and other interested individuals
  • to promote the teaching of ethical and value issues at colleges of veterinary medicine and to identify speakers on these subjects
  • to encourage persons from other professions and disciplines - such as biomedical research, medicine, law, political science, philosophy and theology - to engage in cross-disciplinary discussions and studies of these issues
  • to exchange information about veterinary ethical issues via bulletins, periodicals and newsletters
  • to maintain archives of appropriate documents and materials related to these disciplines.
