Pinellas County Veterinary Medical Association
Established in 1965
The PINELLAS COUNTY VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, Inc. is an organization of veterinarians with the purpose of promoting education, the exchange of knowledge and fellowship among the veterinarians of Pinellas County through regular programs of continuing education and by communicating current events and public issues to our members.
We are dedicated to educating the public in the humane and responsible care of both pets and un-owned animals through direct action and by supporting programs that promote public awareness. Including among those programs is the Pinellas Animal Foundation’s Pet Professor program, which educates children in responsible pet ownership.
We provide a forum for the discussion and development of positions on issues of importance to the profession, pet owners and to the public.
The Pinellas County Veterinary Medical Association also serves as the collective and authorized voice for its members and for the profession in Pinellas County.
The Veterinarian’s Oath was adopted by the American Veterinary Medical Association‘s House of Delegates July 1969, and amended by the AVMA Executive Board, November 1999 and December 2010.
