Veterinary medicine is a cause worth advancing

We are a community of individuals who are committed to advancing the cause of veterinary medicine in the state of Utah.

Learn About Us

Since 1910, when the Utah Veterinary Medical Association was founded, our mission has been to promote excellence and professionalism in advancing the health and well-being of animals. Not only in the veterinary community, but also in the public. Since our inception, we have had hundreds of veterinarians volunteer within the organization to make veterinary medicine better in Utah. In 1953, the Utah Veterinarian of the Year award has recognized exceptional service to the community as well as the association. These recipients go above and beyond serving in the community, volunteering to better the lives of animals, their owners, and the people who treat them.
