About California Veterinary Medical Association
Organized veterinary medicine in California began on Jan. 11, 1888 at a meeting held by a small group of veterinary practitioners in San Francisco. They formed the California State Veterinary Medical Association, the 14th state association in the nation.
From this small beginning, CVMA grew to its present status as the largest state veterinary medical association in the nation, and assumed its leadership position through ambitious, innovative programs.
The California Veterinary Medical Association is committed to serving their membership and community through innovative leadership and to improving animal and human health in an ethically and socially responsible manner.
