August is Pet Dental Health Month and the AVA is urging pet owners to speak to their vet about what they can do to prevent their animal from developing dental disease

Small animal vets from across Australia will be on the Gold Coast 7-11 August to attend the annual ASAVA conference.

New treatments for a disease that causes chronic itching and irritation in dogs could be just around the corner, says animal dermatology expert, Dr Mike Shipstone

APVMA has put together some frequently asked questions to contribute to INTERPOL’s Operation Pangea that might help arm veterinarians for such discussions.


Companion animal vets around Australia look to the ASAVA 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 ASAVA on 02 9431 5090 or via email.
