FEEVA: uniting European Equine Veterinarians
FEEVA was created in Strasbourg in 1998 when equine veterinary practitioners from different EU countries met to discuss with European Parliament members the issue of medicine regulations concerning horses. Restriction of authorized medicines to treat horses was a thread to horse health and welfare. Since that time, numerous national equine veterinary associations have joined FEEVA to work on all matters related to horse health and welfare throughout Europe together with the need to safeguard public health.
Today FEEVA represents 20 member countries, all representing European horse veterinarians.
European Horse's Veterinarians Voices
FEEVA is the umbrella equine veterinary association in Europe, representing more than 7000 equine veterinarians. Because every horse counts.
We thrive to be the leading voice of European equine veterinarians guarding both the equine veterinary profession and horse welfare.
The equine veterinary profession is a highly regarded/esteemed profession in all parts of Europe for all genders.
The life of a horse is of good quality no matter the purpose of the horse.
