Introducing VDS Support

Introducing VDS Support

The Veterinary Defence Society (VDS) is pleased to announce the launch of VDS Support, a new initiative designed to introduce you, the VDS member, to carefully selected income protection products from third-party companies that we have chosen to partner with.


The veterinary industry has trusted us to provide our unique professional indemnity insurance for over 150 years. Throughout that time, mutuality has been, and remains, our key principle. That is why we have taken great care to ensure that those companies we are partnering with share, and are founded on, that ethos of mutuality. Working in such partnerships can often provide an income through commissions and, in keeping with the mutual ethos, the VDS is looking at ways in which any such income could be used to set up a support fund to enhance the benefits which are available for members. This could range from, for example, extending our core services, or providing subsidised training, to funding research within the veterinary profession or setting up new services.


We are now able to offer VDS members specially discounted rates on a variety of income protection options, both for individuals and for larger groups.
