The AVA: Supporting veterinary professionals like you
The Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) is the professional organisation representing veterinarians across Australia since 1921, and our vision is to be the health and welfare leader in Australia’s animal industries.
Today representing more than 9,000 members in the veterinary profession, we are committed to providing improved welfare and health outcomes for animals. We are also actively involved in advocacy on behalf of the profession, and regularly meet with government and industry stakeholders and members of parliament to represent the views of our members across a range of issues.
Recognising the importance of CPD for our profession, we are also the leading provider of continuing professional development opportunities in Australia for veterinary professionals.
