Welcome to PEIVMA
The Prince Edward Island Veterinary Medical Association (PEIVMA) is the regulatory body for veterinarians and the practice of veterinary medicine in Prince Edward Island. Veterinarians must be members of the PEIVMA and licensed by the PEIVMA in order to practice veterinary medicine in the province.
The PEIVMA and veterinarians in Prince Edward Island strive for excellence in the practice of veterinary medicine and the setting of practice standards. We endeavor to do this through our support of continuing education programs, and the work of the PEIVMA Council, committees and members. The veterinary profession is deeply committed to promoting animal health, animal care and welfare, food safety and responsible animal stewardship, and preventing public health problems related to animal disease. If you have any specific questions about your animal, please consult your local veterinarian. There are qualified members in your area that would be glad to assist you. Kindly refer to this site or your local telephone book under veterinarian.
We are pleased that you have visited us and encourage you to check out our website in more detail, as well as to connect with our links.

THE COSMETIC SURGERY BYLAW
WAS GIVEN APPROVAL BY THE
GOVERNMENT OF PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND
SEPTEMBER 15, 2010
The text of the bylaw follows:
It is considered unprofessional conduct for a veterinarian in Prince Edward Island to perform cosmetic surgery on any animal. Cosmetic surgery is defined as non-therapeutic surgical procedures (i.e. of no medical benefit) which are performed purely to alter the appearance of an animal. Surgery performed due to injury or for reasons of animal health is not considered to be cosmetic surgery.
The following are examples of cosmetic surgery:
- Tail docking in the canine, equine and bovine species
- Tail nicking and setting in the equine species
- Ear cropping in the canine species.
