Welcome to ESVCN

ESVCN is a non-profit organisation with the following objectives: to generate interest, stimulate research and disseminate knowledge in veterinary nutrition, comparative nutrition and nutrition-related diseases; to promote pre- and post-graduate education in veterinary and comparative nutrition; to stimulate the application of clinical nutrition in veterinary schools by cooperation between nutritionists and clinicians; and to cooperate with other societies with related interests.


ESVCN membership is open for science graduates (worldwide) and students working towards a science graduate degree interested in the topic area and is not restricted to veterinarians.

ESVCN holds an annual congress, which moves from country to country within Europe, where some of the latest research on veterinary and comparative nutrition is presented . The congress also includes plenary lectures on specialist subjects and may contain workshops or auxiliary days on specific topics as well as holding debates on ‘hot’ topics within the field of veterinary and comparative nutrition.

ESVCN and ECVCN are closely linked Societies. The objective of the European College of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (ECVCN) is to advance the quality of animal health care in Europe by increasing the competency of those who are active in the field of veterinary nutrition. The ECVCN was founded in 1998 from the European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition.
