Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinarians

The Code sets out the standards of professional conduct that the public, the veterinary profession and VCNZ expect veterinarians to meet.

All veterinarians should read the Code and review it regularly. The principles are intended to be broad enough to set expectations for veterinarians in any area of veterinary practice.

Members of the public can also check to Code to find out the standards expected of veterinarians.

The Code is reviewed constantly on a section-by-section basis. Always check to make sure you are reading the most up to date version (which can be found on this page).
