Consumers must make sure that their veterinarian is registered with the South African Veterinary Council (SAVC).

The SAVC is the regulatory body for the veterinary and para-veterinary professions in South Africa and has a statutory duty to determine scientific and ethical standards of professional conduct and education.

To keep their registration up to date, vets have to take advantage of continuing education programs to keep up on the latest techniques and research, which is important for your pet’s health and treatment.

Is your vet a member of the SAVA?

The South African Veterinary Association (SAVA) is a voluntary professional association of veterinarians in South Africa. The SAVA is committed to upholding the highest professional and scientific standards, and to utilising the professional knowledge, skill and resources of our members, to foster close ties with the community and thus promote the health and welfare of animals and mankind.
