In 2008, a handful of veterinarians got together and decided that organized veterinary medicine was lacking in the Pasco and Hernando county areas. It seemed as though each practice was an island! These friends then organized a couple of continuing education meetings to assess local interest in forming a local association. Following these “test” meetings, the PHVMA was founded in 2008 to provide opportunity for high quality continuing education and for synergistic networking among colleagues to enhance the standard of care provided in our local area. In 2009, the PHVMA was officially and unanimously welcomed by the Florida Veterinary Medical Association’s Executive Board as an affiliated regional veterinary medical association. Learn more here.
