Welcome to The Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society

The Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society is comprised of more than 75 small animal hospitals and 200 veterinarians in Erie and Niagara Counties, New York. Together we work to advance public awareness and understanding of proper pet health care, veterinary services and promote the veterinary profession.

Our Mission

Promote public awareness and understanding of veterinary services and pet care.

Offer a timely source of information on small animal health topics of concern to the community.

Work cooperatively with other animal welfare and health organizations to control and prevent disease.

Advance understanding and interest in the veterinary profession among young people.

Create a dialog among practitioners fostering a spirit of cooperation and discussion of opportunities an challenges facing local veterinary professionals.

Free First Exams!

The Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society strongly believes in starting pets out with an examination as part of a life-long program of regular veterinary care. To this end, the organization established the Free First Exam and Health Pet Programs for new pet owners.

It is with great sadness the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society has decided there will be no 2020 Mini-Veterinary School. See you in 2021!

The uncertainty of what Covid-19 holds for the foreseeable future precludes us from making solid arrangements for the 2020 Mini-Vet School. This ranges from commitments that are needed to hold the classes at Medaille and potential sponsors to recruiting speakers as well as attendees.

Your health, safety and enjoyment in attending Mini-Vet School are paramount. Therefore, we have had to make this difficult decision to cancel the 2020 program.

We will begin planning for 2021 this winter. Between now and then we welcome your input on what we can do for you to improve/enhance your Mini-Vet School experience. Please forward any suggestions to the NFVS using our contact form.

Please keep well! We look forward to seeing you next year.

Pet Emergency Fund

The Pet Emergency Fund, raises money to help cash-strapped families pay for veterinary care when an emergency strikes.

Ho, Ho, Ho? No, no, no. Not with Covid this year.

Veterinarians, staff, family and friends are unable to bring pets to visit with the Highpointe on Michigan children this year. We are still able to deliver gifts to make the holidays brighter for these long-term residential pediatric patients.

If you are interested in giving so that hospital caregivers can shop for the children, please bring/send donations to us by December 22.

The best way to participate is by purchasing gift cards, (Walmart, Target, etc.). Monetary donations, or checks payable to NFVS will be consolidated into a single check for them. Your participation is especially meaningful this year.
