The Florida Association of Equine Practitioners (FAEP) is an equine-exclusive division of the Florida Veterinary Medical Association (FVMA).

The FAEP offers world-class, equine-exclusive continuing education at two annual conferences: the Promoting Excellence Symposium and the Ocala Equine Conference. The FAEP also runs and distributes the equine-focused publication, The Practitioner, to FAEP members.

FAEP members have always been able to ask questions pertaining to practicing veterinary medicine, pharmacy law, and veterinary board relations. Starting in 2022, we’ve expanded legal benefits to include new areas of law such as labor and employment law and civil litigation.
Practice and pharmacy-related inquiries are referred to Attorney Edwin Bayo, Partner of Grossman, Furlow, Bayo, LLC and instructor of the RACE-approved 3-hour Florida Laws and Rules & Dispensing Legend Drugs course. Labor, employment law, and civil litigation inquiries are referred to Sniffen & Spellman, P.A.
