UEVP is an independent organisation with international statutes.

The UEVP was launched in October 1970 with 11 member countries. Since then, it has grown up.

Practicing veterinarians are without a doubt the sector of the veterinary profession best known to the public. Caring for the health of companion, farm and/or zoo animals, they are also the largest group, representing around two thirds of the veterinary work force in Europe.

Though all veterinarians receive a general basic training, encompassing all animal species and diseases, a growing number of practitioners are specializing in one or more species (such as companion animals, horses, pigs) or in a particular discipline (e.g. dermatology, surgery, internal medicine, reproduction, ophthalmology).

Today UEVP represents 29 member countries and 4 European federations, all representing European practitioners.

Our mission

European Practitioners' Voice

The mission of the UEVP is to unite over 140.000 European practitioners (FVE Survey 2015) through the national associations and to be their “European Voice”. The goal of the UEVP is to set standards across borders. This includes lifelong education, contribute/ influence European Legislation (EU) through a Pan European veterinary opinion and the prudent use of medicines, which includes fighting Anti Microbial Resistance (AMR).
UEVP will, do their upmost to create a professional environment for the European Veterinary Practitioner in conjunction with stakeholders, which will help to facilitate a positive outcome of our vision.

Our vision

Ensure the well-being of humans and animals

We live in a rapidly changing world where many more people and animals are living closely together. Practicing Vets, united in the UEVP, are in the center of this world and have the intrinsic duty to guard and protect the well-being and welfare of humans and animals. This can be achieved by ensuring the safe production of food and feed, preventing or containing diseases and zoonosis according to the “ One Health” principle / concept.

The UEVP is a member of FVE

FVE is the European representative body for the veterinary profession in Europe. FVE’s mission is to enhance animal health, animal welfare, public health and the protection of the environment by promoting the veterinary profession.
