Member benefits

BVA is the only UK veterinary association that looks after the interests of all vets in all disciplines. 

We are the voice of the UK veterinary profession and provide benefits to support and guide our members throughout their veterinary career, from student to retirement.

As a not-for-profit organisation we exist only to serve our members, which means any money we make is reinvested in developing these benefits further.
