Value for Industry Partners

While working with the VOA your communication becomes more targeted with a receptive client base. 5 key aspects make up this approach:

Pet Owner Affiliation

The VOA Affiliation Scheme has been created to help the owners of pets with osoetarthritis (OA) find a veterinary practice in their area that has a particular interest in the management of animal OA.

Blue Paw status is awarded to induviduals that have undertaken extra training, with proven knowledge assimilation, in the subject of OA. Veterinary Practices can attain Bronze Silver and Gold status by having veterinary surgeon and nursing staff dedication to the pursuit of OA treatment, with further staff training and case analysis, by offering comprehensive rehabilitation programmes and at the upper level.

Owner Information Site

We are working in collaboration with Canine Arthritis Management. This is a separate site and the VOA are not responsible for any of the content on the Canine Arthritis Management Website.

The Veterinary Edge has teamed up with the Veterinary Osteoarthritis Alliance and Nupsala to run VOACON – the veterinary osteoarthritis congress – in Leicester this spring.
