Overtaking Inflation: Veterinarian Compensation in Government, Industry, and Academe

October 28, 2019

For veterinarians employed outside clinical practice, in government, industry, or academia (GIA), 2019 was a positive year. Median annual compensation climbed by 5.8%, significantly outpacing inflation. This helped regain ground that had been lost in previous years, when compensation had fallen. The survey of veterinarians working in GIA is an annual project commissioned by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) Business Development Program, the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) Business Management Program, and the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI). This research provides valuable information on the compensation, benefits, hours worked, responsibilities, etc., of veterinarians employed in these fields.?
