The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) exists to promote excellence in small animal practice through education and science. BSAVA was founded in 1957 as a professional body to serve veterinary surgeons who treat companion animals. The organization now has over 10,000 members who work in practice as veterinary surgeons or veterinary nurses. The BSAVA encourages veterinary surgeons and nurses to develop their professional skills; runs numerous continuing education courses and seminars throughout the UK; hosts the biggest annual small animal conference in the world, attracting over 7,000 delegates; funds clinical investigations into the diseases of companion animals through its charity, PetSavers; and publishes books, manuals, CD-ROMs, and videos on a diversity of small animal topics as well as the monthly Journal of Small Animal Practice.
Since 1994, BSAVA has sent us 53 titles in Veterinary Medicine.
