An acronym that stands for the Association of Avian Veterinarians.

By Melissa Kauffman

An experienced avian veterinarian should teach pet bird owners preventative health care, starting at the very first veterinary visit.

AAV: (noun) An acronym that stands for the Association of Avian Veterinarians. Formed in 1980, this organization is made up of veterinarians, allied personnel, technicians and students from private vet practice, universities and zoos.

As an avian veterinarian and former recent President of the AAV, I can tell you that it's a wonderful organization open to all bird-lovers, not just vets or those in the veterinary field. I encourage all bird enthusiasts to check out the AAV website,, to get more information on this group, the care of birds, and on how to find a great avian vet in your area.

There's an interesting article about AAV in September's Bird Talk.
