The Veterinary Oath

The Veterinary Oath is the veterinary equivalent to the Hippocratic Oath undertaken by human doctors. It outlines the underlying principles and way of thinking and is reflected in the way we do business here at Centretown Vet.

“As a member of the veterinary medical profession, I solemnly swear that I will use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society.

I will strive to promote animal health and welfare, relieve animal suffering, protect the health of the public and environment, and advance comparative medical knowledge.

I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.

I will strive continuously to improve my professional knowledge and competence and to maintain the highest professional and ethical standards for myself and the profession.”
