Vision, Mission & Objectives

SVK is the association for small animal practioners in Switzerland and was founded in 1970. We celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2010 with a big party during the WSAVA/FECAVA Congress in Geneva. The SVK created a three year continuing education program for our young colleagues, which is now very well established. We are working in collaboration with the other scientific associations in Switzerland concerning problems that are common: AMR, animal welfare, mental health of vets, future of the profession, new forms of clinic organisation etc.

Priorities for the Upcoming Year
