The interests of practicing veterinarians on a European level are
represented since 1970 by the UEVP, the European umbrella organization
of national veterinary practitioners' associations.

veterinarians are without a doubt the sector of the veterinary profession
best known to the public. Caring for the health of companion, farm
and/or zoo animals, they are also the largest group, representing
around two thirds of the veterinary work force in Europe.
Though all veterinarians receive a general basic training, encompassing
all animal species and diseases, a growing number of practitioners
are specializing in one or more species (such as companion animals,
horses, pigs) or in a particular discipline (e.g. dermatology, surgery,
internal medicine, reproduction, ophthalmology).
