48th ASAV Annual Conference together with Reproduction Wrap Up!


The 48th ASAV Annual Conference Together with Reproduction saw over 400 veterinary professionals including over 250 veterinarians gather all under one roof at The Star Gold Coast from Monday 7 – Thursday 10 August 2023.


The conference was more exciting than ever with something for everyone, from our wonderful scientific program to our world class industry exhibition and unrivalled collegiality.

The conference wasn’t just an opportunity to learn, but a chance to help steer the future of small animal veterinary practice.
