Dr David Neck shares with you some of the many benefits of being part of the ASAVA.

The AVA’s recent submission to the Senate Inquiry into Environmental Biosecurity emphasised the importance of preventing wildlife and feral animal disease to protect our agricultural trade and market access as well as our precious biodiversity.

Veterinarians are being urged to take greater care when shipping diagnostic material to laboratories across the country.

With bushfires burning already and very dry weather in many parts of Australia, practices need to be prepared for the worst and help their clients make their own preparations.

Proposed changes from the federal budget are likely to have serious consequences for vet students and the profession.


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.
