Dear Colleagues,

The Federation of Veterinarians of Europe has created a questionnaire (10-15min) to be filled out by as many European veterinarians as possible.

The questionnaire includes an identifier for EBVS specialists and so the outcome will allow us to compare the responses from specialists with the general population of veterinarians (salary, job satisfaction, mobility in Europe etc). Needless to say this information will be invaluable for EBVS and the colleges; if sufficient numbers of specialists respond, it can be used to inform our policies and strategies for the coming years! We therefore strongly encourage you to distribute this to as many of your members as possible (also feel free to post it on your websites and social media channels).

More information can be found in the text and video below.

Deadline for response is the end of the year.

Thank you in advance for your active participation!

Best regards,

Anne Courouce

VetSurvey 2018, the second edition of the FVE Survey of the Veterinary Profession in Europe

FVE with the support of MSD Animal Health EURAM is carrying out the second edition of VetSurvey, a study about the veterinary profession in Europe.

The purpose of this study is to thoroughly assess many aspects of the veterinary profession in Europe such as statistics about demographics, job market and financial indicators which help the FVE to understand the current situation of the veterinary profession and which actions could help us to improve and shape the future of the sector.

The previous edition gathered the answers of over 13,000 veterinarians from 24 countries, and the results were published in an extensive report.

Athough it revealed a number of interesting findings, to carry on deepening the knowledge of the veterinary profession in Europe and to see the directions the profession is moving in, your cooperation to this 2nd VetSurvey is very important. This survey will help not only you and your future as a veterinary professional but also the next generations'.

The survey will only take 10-15 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey by accessing this link:
