Years of compassionate veterinary care inspire a scholarship for Cornell students

For so many households, dogs and cats are more than pets — they’re members of the family. For Lisa Freeland, that was especially true about her cat Jack, a quirky but lovable ginger and white domestic longhair who lived to be 15. “He was loving at home, but hell on wheels anywhere else,” rec...

Electronic prescribing mandate success

In his 2021 budget proposal, Governor Cuomo included a requirement for all veterinary prescriptions to be issued electronically.

The NYSVMS Government Relations committee has been working hard to oppose this mandate, and you can see details in the infographic timeline below and at https://my.visme.co/view/jwpeeqpv-timeline-eprescribing.

This work has been successful as both the NY Senate and Assembly have now published their proposed budget bills and exclude the mandate.

While the budget is not yet final, we are encouraged to see that two of the three parties to the negotiations have rejected the removal of the veterinary exemption. We will continue to ensure that this provision stays out of the budget so that when the final budget is enacted on or around April 1st, veterinarians will continue to be exempt from e-prescribing.

Thank you to all those members who helped us compile the evidence that we presented to help defeat this proposal.

General information

The New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) is the professional association representing the more than 3,500 veterinarians registered to practice in New York State. The NYSVMS promotes the practice of veterinary medicine, animal well-being, and public health, and offers a broad scope of programs and services to keep veterinarians and the public informed about issues, laws and regulations affecting veterinary practice. The NYSVMS was founded in 1890. Its leaders were the pioneers of modern veterinary medicine and were instrumental in introducing a practice act for veterinary medicine into law in 1895 when veterinarians joined physicians as one of the first licensed professions in New York State. The NYSVMS is the fourth largest state veterinary medical association in the nation and is recognized for its leadership on important issues, innovative solutions and effective representation. As a result of the excellence of its educational programs, publications and legislative efforts, the NYSVMS has become a recognized and influential voice for veterinarians on the national level, and before the New York State Legislature and regulatory agencies. Veterinarians are encouraged to invest in the future of veterinary medicine by becoming members of the NYSVMS.
