From the 8th August until the 12th August 2016, ASAVA Conference was underway at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. The ASAVA conference is an annual, national veterinary conference focussed on small animals, and was attended by vets from all around Australia!
This year, Dermcare hosted the first annual 'Scrub Run'. Just over 30 vets braved the cool, early morning to watch the sunrise and run/ walk 2.5km or 5km in their scrub tops!
Congratulations to all who participated! We can't wait to see those scrub tops worn in-clinic. An extra special congratulations goes out to our front runners:
5km winner: Adam Heeley
5km runner-up: Bill Perry
2.5km winner: Emily Ireland
2.5km runner-up: Victoria Bartley
We look forward to an even bigger and better 'Scrub Run' at FASAVA 2017!
Not only did the Dermcare team attend the conference, so did some of our pets! Team Pomeranian provided some lunchtime entertainment to the crowd, showing off their agility skills in tiny, pom-sized scrub tops! Gizmo, Yogi, Tim-Tam and Rebel were such good sports, even posing with fans after the event!
A few more Dermcare dogs volunteered their time (and some of their fur!) to help vets hone their ultrasounding skills once the conference was over! Gracie, Shelby, Ned, Missy, Hudson and Malia got lots of big cuddles and extra treats for their fantastic behaviour throughout the course! A big thanks to Liina and Toby, plus Jess and Claudia, for also giving up their time to help!
We had a great time at ASAVA 2016, and can't wait to see lots of new and familiar faces at FASAVA 2017! Vets, be sure to check out our competition to win registration to FASAVA 2017 on the VET section of the website!
