Our Mission

The IVMA promotes animal well-being, public health and advances in the profession and serves as a voice for veterinarians while advocating the highest standards and ethics.

Member Benefits

We help our members deliver healthy careers, healthy practices, and healthy animals.


Research and Information

The IVMA is an essential resource for questions and concerns regarding all aspects of the veterinary profession - all by calling toll free at 800/270-0747 or info@invma.org.



Legislation is monitored and lobbying is provided by a professional governmental relations advocate who represents the voice of veterinary medicine in Indiana. IVMA monitors legislation concerning all aspects of veterinary medicine that may affect your practice and the veterinary profession.


Continuing Education

Programs are provided by nationally known speakers and commercial and scientific exhibits with current and useful information for veterinarians, technicians, assistants, and students, which can directly benefit your practice.


Solid working relationships

IVMA connects with the Indiana animal industry, through the Board of Animal Health, the Indiana Ag Resource Council, the State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, the State Veterinarian, and Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, so the IVMA voice can be heard.


Public Relations

IVMA focuses on such events as the Indiana State Fair and National Pet Week as well as tools for IVMA members to use to promote the profession, including the award-winning Public Relations for the Veterinarian book.
