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.

========================

Televeterinary Coalition formed under the SVME

One outcome of the recent annual SVME meeting in Orlando was the formation of a "Televeterinary Coalition." The current organizational members of the coalition are the Veterinary Future Society and the Society for Veterinary Medical Ethics. Other interested organization are invited to join the coalition. There is no charge and the only obligation is to designate a representative to participate who is or will become a SVME member. Stakeholder individuals includes any person interested in the field of Televeterinary Practice. The goal of this coalition is to produce an ethical, "Proposed
Global Guidelines for Televeterinary for Practice." The hope is for the veterinary profession to "Self-Regulate" this emerging type of veterinary service while collaborating with all existing national organizations to protect the public and the reputation and growth of TeleveterinaryPractice. 

THE PLAN: Members of the SVME who would like to participate in the listserv where these guidelines will be created are invited to request participation by sending a request to svmeinfo@gmail.com
