We publish several annual surveys to help capture the economic state of the veterinary profession. Using the data collected from each survey, we produce reports that members can review for insight on wages, benefits, pet owner perceptions and more.  


By becoming an OVMA member, you’ll receive exclusive access to: 

  • Practice Diagnostic Report 

  • Ontario Pet Owners Report 

  • Non-DVM Wage Report 

  • Report on Veterinarians in Government, Industry and Academe 

  • Ontario Locum Report 

  • Ontario Report on Compensation and Benefits for Associate Veterinarians 

  • Ontario Report on New Graduates 


By analyzing and comparing data collected from the Practice Diagnostic Report and the Ontario Pet Owners Report, in addition to cost of living, veterinary and clinic staff wages, and other economic considerations, OVMA produces annual suggested fee guides for small and large animal veterinary practices. 


Our suggested fee guides are integral tools to help members set appropriate fees for the services offered through their clinics. All fees reflected in the guides are backed by tangible data collected from Ontario practices, veterinarians, veterinary staff, pet owners and the pet industry. 


The suggested fee guides are produced by OVMA staffand they are reviewed and approved by the association’s economic committee, which consists of practicing Ontario veterinarians.
