New Zealand Equine Veterinary Association
The New Zealand Equine Veterinary Association branch of the NZVA works to:
- provide leadership within the New Zealand equine industry to improve the health and welfare of horses
- promote excellence within the veterinary profession as the primary guardians of the health and welfare of horses
- promote the value of proven science based equine veterinary medicine to our clients.
How we do this
Health and welfare
We work closely with all sectors of the equine industry on health and welfare issues. The knowledge and experience of our members has been used to develop equine industry policies on a number of racing, sport-horse and equine welfare issues. Our experience has also been called upon to set regulations for the transportation and quarantine of horses travelling to and from New Zealand.
We promote excellence within the veterinary profession by providing educational and professional development opportunities to veterinarians who, in turn, provide the highest standard of service to their clients.
We host workshops, courses and other CPD opportunities each year, which attract world-class speakers on all aspects of equine veterinary science.
The New Zealand Equine Veterinary Association has close affiliations with all the major veterinary schools and many international equine research institutions. We support research and education within the New Zealand equine industry by way of donations and resource support.
Every year, the Equine Veterinary Practitioner (EVP) Editorial Group sets aside money in its Continuing Education Fund. The fund is used to facilitate continuing education and/or specialist training for NZVA members and to disseminate information from this education or training through the EVP journal.
The NZEVA is a special interest branch of the NZVA with over 450 members working in veterinary practices from Whangarei to Invercargill.
From 2021, membership is included for NZVA members as part of your annual subscription fee. Sign-up when you join or renew your membership. To join outside the membership renewal period, please email email@example.com.
