World Small Animal Veterinary Association

We represent more than 200,000 veterinarians through our 110 member associations and advance the health and welfare of companion animals through building an educated and collaborative global community of veterinary peers.  Our core activities include:

  • The creation of regionally-relevant Global Guidelines which set best practice standards in particular aspects of veterinary care
  • The provision of continuing education (CE) and other educational resources for our members, particularly those in regions in which companion animal veterinary care is still emerging
  • Helping to raise awareness of the importance of companion animals in the One Health movement

World Small Animal Veterinary Association

WSAVA's primary purpose is to advance the quality and availability of small animal medicine and surgery, creating a unified standard of care for the benefit of animals and humankind. As “Global Veterinary Community” is our tagline, being a part of WSAVA also creates a space in which we can help each other and to generate a “One global voice” from the veterinary profession to contribute to the world.


New WSAVA Position Statement on Equitable Access to Veterinary Therapeutics for Veterinarians Globally

“Ready access by healthcare professionals to pharmaceuticals (e.g., medicines, anesthetics/analgesics, etc), biologicals (e.g., vaccines, etc), parasiticides, and antiseptics is one of the key pillars of appropriate patient care, whether in human or veterinary medicine. Inequities in availability and access exist between various regions of the world for a variety of reasons. We call upon key stakeholders (regulatory authorities, manufacturers, and healthcare professionals) to seek solutions that would broaden access while maintaining the sanctity of the veterinary-client-patient+/- pharmacist relationship, where warranted.”

This joint position statement stems from an earlier more comprehensive WSAVA statement (in the Resources section) which was developed based on member engagement on this issue.

View Statement

We’re delighted that the following WSAVA members have already endorsed our Position Statement:

  • CVA
  • FAVA
