The Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS) is urging all veterinary professionals to participate in its 2014 Salaries Survey, to help give an accurate insight into the levels of pay experienced by those in the industry.

Designed to provide a picture of remuneration levels, the survey is the only one of its kind to provide an invaluable benchmark to all those working in the veterinary sector.

The questionnaire covers everything from basic earnings, bonuses, dividends and overtime, to benefits such as accommodation, car allowances and pensions.

Last year’s survey revealed a slip in salaries among small animal practice vets for the second year running, with only mixed and large animal practices showing an increase. There were also large regional variations and a gender gap in pay.

Adi Nell, SPVS senior vice president, said: “We are aiming for the 2014 Salaries Survey to be our biggest and best yet. To achieve this, we need as many of the veterinary profession as possible to complete the questionnaire so the results give us a really accurate picture of what is happening to our salaries around the country.”

The survey closes on July 31.

To take part in the survey, visit, or for a printed version, telephone 01926 410454.
