Our Story

Pancyprian Veterinary Association (PVA) was established in 1978 aiming to unify all the vets of the island of Cyprus into one entity.  The PVA had started with 28 members and nowadays it is consisted of 450 members, of which some are employed in the government sector and some in the private sector. As a future target PVA wishes to become a legal entity in the standards of other legal entities (e.g. Medical Association, Legal association etc).

PVA provides continuous education, to the Cypriot Vets as we organize seminars, practical training sessions. In addition we are currently in cooperation with big private training companies as Improve international, HCAVS and Univercity of Nicosia that is going to build the first Veterinary School in Cyprus.
