This Summer, the AVA is warning animal owners about the dangers of leaving their pets in vehicles.

The AVA is asking owners to make sure their dogs are up-to-date with their vaccinations with a high risk of exposure to parvovirus at this time of year.

Australia is a nation of dog-lovers and on this World Animal Day (4 October) the AVA is raising awareness of the health and welfare concerns associated with flat-faced dogs.

With spring and summer, the high seasons for ticks, the AVA is encouraging pet owners to talk to their veterinarian now about ways to prevent serious harm or death from toxic ticks.


Companion animal vets around Australia look to the ASAV for services that maintain and increase their skills and knowledge. Continuing professional development in all areas of clinical veterinary medicine is a key service provided by the group.

You must be a member of the AVA to join, and you can contact ASAV on 02 9431 5090 or via email.
