The Association of Zoo Veterinary Technicians  37th AZVT Annual Conference at Edmonton Valley Zoo

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada September 4-8, 2017.

The Association of Zoo Veterinary Technicians (AZVT) was formed when a group of 13 zoo veterinary technicians and medical technologists met to discuss the need for a forum of continuing education in their highly specialized field. AZVT began with 29 members in 1981 and has grown to almost 400 members from around the world.

AZVT is a professional organization available to veterinary technicians and anyone interested in the veterinary medical field.  Our organization is dedicated to all aspects of quality veterinary technical care in the field of zoo animal medicine. We believe this is accomplished through the sharing of ideas, improving techniques and contributing to conservation.  Our conferences are a great place for networking and learning where technicians can share experiences and support one another in the field of zoo medicine.  Our conference topics range from infant rearing to laboratory techniques and involve both individual and institutional research.

The Association of Zoo Veterinary Technicians is having their 37th AZVT Annual Conference at Edmonton Valley Zoo, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada September 4-8, 2017. More information can be found at: http://azvt.org/conference2017.htm
