The Philippine Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA) unites all Filipino veterinarians in responding to the needs and demands of the veterinary profession and the whole nation. Composed of 5,274 members, the PVMA strives to develop the veterinary profession in the Philippines and to promote the professional and ethical standards in veterinary science and medicine.

Organized in 1907, the PVMA has consistently protected the inherent rights of the profession and the delivery of veterinary services. The PVMA was deeply involved in the enactment of the Animal Welfare Act and the creation of the Sub-Committee on Veterinary Drugs of the Department of Health which developed the implementing guidelines of the Generic Drugs Act for veterinary practice.

It also initiated the institutionalization of the Legislative Council which worked for the restoration of provincial and city veterinarians in local governments. The PVMA was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 23, 1953 and recognized by the PRC on November 3, 1976 as its 25th accredited professional organization. To date, the PVMA has 13 regional chapters and 13 affiliate organizations nationwide.
