About Us

The Society of Companion Animal Practitioners (SCAP) of Sri Lanka was established in 2003 by a group of enthusiastic veterinary surgeons who understood the great demand for quality veterinary services and a need for veterinary clinicians to update their knowledge to meet the current trends as well as to advance and develop companion animal practice.



The principal vision is to address the needs of the growing number of companion animal veterinary practitioners and facilitate the push towards improving veterinary medicine in Sri Lanka to international standards.



To increase the access to knowledge, promote continuing professional development (CPD) and thereby improve the standards and professionalism of companion animal practitioners in Sri Lanka.
