The AVMA, established in 1863, is a not-for-profit national association in the USA that currently represents more than 91,000 veterinarians working in private and corporate practice, government, industry, academia, and uniformed services.
Approximately 54% of AVMA members are companion animal (exclusive) practitioners.
In addition to caring for the USA's more than 70 million dogs, 80 million cats, 11 million birds, and millions of other companion animals, members of the AVMA also serve in medical research, prevention of bio- and agroterrorism, and food safety and contribute greatly to scientific breakthroughs throughout the world.
Structured to work for its members, the AVMA acts as a collective voice for its membership and for the profession.
The mission of the Association is to lead the profession by advocating for its members and advancing the science and practice of veterinary medicine to improve animal and human health.
The vision of the Association is to be the trusted leader in protecting, promoting and advancing a strong, unified veterinary profession that meets the needs of society.
