Refer to the new rules published on 18 January 2002. Go to the web page for veterinarians and click on Advertising. Fees and incentives shall not be the subject of any advertisement. Prices of products, merchandise and foodstuffs sold and non-professional services rendered at the facility may, however be advertised.

It would be regarded as unprofessional conduct if collusion was proved by a veterinarian to ensure that his/her advertisement appeared next to an article / advertorial by a third party if the article was considered as touting. Members may use their titles, names and surnames and qualifications inscribed into the register when an articles are published in the lay press e.g. Dr John Morgan, BVSc.

Please submit any advertisements or articles to Council for approval if you are not sure about the interpretation of the rule.
