Information about classified advertising

Advertise in the Australian Veterinary Journal and on the website

The AVJ helps advertisers reach the largest group of veterinarians in the region and provides a captive niche market of veterinary surgeons and other key staff who manage veterinary practices. Each issue of the print version is sent to over 5,000 members.

The AVJ is Australia's leading veterinary journal, and is the perfect way for you to reach members of the AVA. Surveys show that the classified ad section is one of the first sections that vets look at.

We publish 11 issues each year including a combined January/February issue. The AVJ is distributed at the beginning of each month.

Member discount

AVA members are entitled to a 50% discount off the classified advertising rate.

If an ad is submitted on behalf of a practice, the discount will apply only if all practice principals are members. Employed AVA members are not entitled to the discount if the ad is submitted on behalf of their employer who is not a member.
