You may have seen on the 31st January 2020 the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons released a reassuring joint statement along with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe and British Veterinary Association. This confirmed even though the UK is leaving the EU the European veterinary profession is still united. They advised they will work together to assist each other in these challenging times.

They confirmed they will keep working together to make sure veterinarians across Europe, including the UK, can give the highest possible standards of care to their patients and continue to look after animal health, animal welfare, public health and the environment, all over Europe.
