The Edmonton Association of Small Animal Veterinarians (EASAV)

Established in 1971, the Edmonton Association of Small Animal Veterinarians (EASAV) is a non-for-profit organization whose mandate is to provide local continuing education for all members of the veterinary team and to promote collegiality amongst Edmonton and area veterinarians. The association, made up of local volunteer veterinarians, currently has greater than 220 member veterinarians and has a public membership list (AHTs, non-member vets and others) of more than 400. We offer member rates to our seminars for members of the Calgary Academy of Veterinary Medicine as well as AHTs (for full day seminars only).
 
EASAV hosts approximately eight seminars per year, bringing in highly respected speakers from all over North America. In 2010, we introduced a new initiative to continue fostering good relations between veterinarians by co-hosting Open Houses with varying clinics throughout the city. At these events, veterinarians are able to share ideas on all areas of practicing veterinary medicine with each other in a social setting. The annual BBQ at the Edmonton Valley Zoo is another very popular social event that has been going strong for 11 years now. Here, members and their families are invited for a relaxing and fun evening BBQ at the zoo.

Seminar topics are chosen each year by the EASAV volunteer Continuing Education (CE) Committee; topics and speakers are based in part upon suggestions from our attendants throughout each year. Your feedback/CE suggestions on membership renewal forms and seminar evaluation forms is most appreciated.

Our members include veterinarians from Edmonton and the surrounding area. We believe that strong relationships in the veterinary community help us all to achieve personal and professional success in our careers as veterinarians.
