As frontline health care providers, veterinarians know what's best when it comes to the services they provide. Doctors of veterinary medicine and the practice of veterinary medicine in Ontario are regulated by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO).

OVMA ensures all levels of government and CVO incorporate and update their policies to allow veterinarians to practice as effectively and efficiently as possible. We're continuously examining developing government policies to ensure veterinarians have a voice at the policy decision-making table.
