Our corporate sponsors recognize CVMF's commitment to public health, a core duty of the veterinary medical profession. In lending their support to our programs, these forward thinking corporate sponsors have made a commitment to society as embodied in perhaps the least well-known portion of the Veterinarian's Oath â€“ "for the benefit of society." CVMF programs are created with both animal and public health in mind. We applaud the commitment of our corporate sponsors and thank them for their support.
The Veterinarian's Oath
"Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge.
I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.
I accept as a lifelong obligation the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence."
