About the OVMA


For more than 100 years, the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association has served its membership and the public at large by promoting the ideals of veterinary medicine, fostering relationships among veterinarians and their communities, and increasing awareness of issues surrounding veterinary medicine.

The OVMA is a trusted source of information that reflects scientific knowledge and the collective wisdom of more than 2,500 veterinary professionals. OVMA values and recognizes the trust its members place in their professional organization, as well as the important role we serve in providing the public with accurate, balanced resources on issues of public health and animal care and well-being.

As an organization, OVMA is committed to professional continuing education, and as such, is a recognized provider of professional continuing education. The OVMA hosts the Midwest Veterinary Conference, one of the largest veterinary conferences in North America, which provides exceptional learning opportunities to thousands of veterinarians, hospital staff, technicians, animal welfare professionals, students, and others each year.

The Ohio Veterinary Medical Association is dedicated to fostering the core principles of stewardship, compassion, community and life-long learning in veterinary medicine. In doing so, we are committed to serving both people and animals responsibly, with integrity and with purpose.
