Association of British Vet Acupuncturists
The Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists was formed in 1987, as a result of a growing interest in acupuncture by veterinary surgeons in the UK.
Whether you are interested in taking the first steps towards veterinary acupuncture or you are an established acupuncturist looking to further their skills, the ABVA has something for you.
Taking place at venues around the UK, our courses are taught by lecturers with a wealth of experience and a real passion for their subject. Teaching is friendly, informal and contains a practical content far higher than your average CPD. They are great value too.
Please note that you must be a qualified veterinary surgeon and a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to attend an ABVA course.
The aims of the Association are:
- To further the research and teaching of veterinary acupuncture through an organised programme of continuing education
- To encourage the safe and competent use of acupuncture in veterinary medicine
- To ensure that animal owners in the UK may contact veterinary acupuncturists from a credible source
