NYSVMS stands for New York State Veterinary Medical Society, a non-profit founded in 1890. Its leaders were the pioneers of modern veterinary science as they were instrumental in advocating for the passing of the practice act for veterinary medicine, which passed into law in 1895, allowing veterinarians to join physicians as among the first licensed professionals in NY state. Their mission is to lead veterinarians in NY state in education, advancement, and protection of animal well-being, public health, and the practice of veterinary medicine.
