SCAVMA

Pet Food Program

What is the pet food program?


SAVMA offers this program to all registered SAVMA members, VMTH Residents, Faculty, and Staff at the beginning of each school year.  This program allows the UC Davis Vet Med community to receive the Pet Food they love at heavily discounted prices while also helping their SAVMA Chapter.
The Pet Food Program is a major fundraiser for UC Davis SAVMA! Membership in this program goes directly back to the UC Davis SAVMA Chapter to-
  • fund students attending national and international SAVMA and research conferences.
  • subsidize costs of valuable externship experiences.
  • support philanthropic endeavors such as Our Oath in Action.
  • subsidize surgical packs for the 3rd year surgery course.
  • provide scholarships to the students.
The SAVMA Pet Food Program runs from September through May of each school year, with some company programs continuing through the summer. The student company representatives are responsible for coordinating and managing distributions. For additional questions, please contact these student representatives about their respective ordering systems. Contact information can be accessed below.
Also, see the below chart for some of the basic differences between companies.
Membership fees remain static throughout the year, so sign up early to take advantage of this membership benefit!
