History

Founded 1959, Madrid (Spain), during the 16th World Veterinary Congress (WVC). April 1863, Professor John Gamgee from the college of Edinburgh (UK) took the initiative to invite professors of veterinary medicine and veterinarians from all over Europe to a general meeting in Hamburg (Germany) 14-18 July 1863. This meeting became the first International Veterinary Congress later known as the World Veterinary Congress, attended by 103 veterinarians from 10 countries. At the 8th WVC, Budapest (Hungary), 1906, Permanent Committee for International Veterinary Congresses was formed to be the organizational link between congresses. At the 15th WVC, Stockholm (Sweden), 1953, it was decided to form an international association. The Permanent Committee worked with a Constitution of the World Veterinary Association until the foundation of the Association as a continuation of the Permanent Committee for the International Veterinary Congresses.
