The MVMA advocates at the state legislative and regulatory level on issues that affect animal and human health while advancing the veterinary profession in Massachusetts. Veterinary medicine is important to the health and well-being of animals and humans throughout the state. Individual veterinarians find it difficult to advocate in Boston on a personal basis due to the pressures and time constraints that come with running a veterinary practice.  The MVMA is your voice!

The MVMA leadership, volunteers and staff, along with their team of lobbyists and legal experts, work tirelessly to protect your practice rights and your individual rights, while advocating for the health and safety of the animals you treat.

Advocacy also includes your involvement in key issues. The MVMA keeps you informed of many critical issues. It is important that when asked, you write or call your legislator or regulatory board to express your position on certain issues. You can influence public policy through your personal advocacy.
