ASVP Members & conference delegates,

Unfortunately, the continuing disruptions due to COVID-19 have forced the cancellation of the 2020 ASVP Annual Conference as part of the joint program with the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology and the International Society of Veterinary Dermatopathology.

Current travel restrictions, mandatory quarantine and social distancing measures have made conferences unworkable and it was considered that even if restrictions were lifted, the time=frame was getting too short to expect potential delegates to make travel plans. In addition, many potential delegates and presenters are from countries less fortunate than Australia in their exposure to COVID-19 and their travel plans may be impractical.  

We are pleased to offer an Australian Saturday Seminar Series, brought to you by Davis Thompson Foundation, the AAPSP and the ASVP.  The program is currently underway in an Australian friendly timezone.  Please refer to the events page for further information and links to register for each of the seminars between now and November.

While the WA Committee is disappointed that our Conference has been cancelled,the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology is being offered online and further information and registration can be found at

We hope you will continue to support us and the future Victorian Committee as we try to serve our ASVP membership in these interesting times.
