Australian Veterinary Association
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 and are guided by our purpose, core values, and strategic priorities.
The AVA is also actively involved in advocacy on behalf of the profession, and we regularly meet with government and industry stakeholders and members of parliament to represent the views of our members across a range of issues.
Recognizing the importance of continuing professional development (CPD) for our profession, the AVA also delivers a range of veterinary education across the country and continues to be one of the leading providers of veterinary CPD in Australia.
