Professional ethics should play a central role in every decision made by an equine veterinarian, and the AAEP is committed to developing resources which will assist our members in navigating the common ethical dilemmas faced in practice.

The Professional Conduct and Ethics Committee is the group within the AAEP charged with reviewing ethical issues facing the membership and developing position statements as they pertain to ethical practice, as well as developing educational resources for our members.

In 2017, the AAEP has launched a new campaign focused on ethics called “Ethical Practice: Every Day. Every Time.”

The AAEP office now has bumper stickers that feature the Ethical Practice logo. If you would like one for your vehicle(s) or maybe you have another place in mind for one, please contact Kristin Walker at These stickers are complimentary to AAEP members.
