The Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV), the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (AEMV), and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians (ARAV) will join together for the Building Exotics Excellence: One City, One Conference.

On the banks of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, St. Louis will host the 2019 edition of the Exotics Con, dedicated to advancing and promoting animal health, welfare, and conservation through education, advocacy, and science. The scientific program provides for classroom and hands-on education, workshop and networking. We are very pleased to participate in this event to join the scientific activities and attend the Masterclass lead by Dr. Robert Dahlhausen, Dr. Susan Orosz and Prof. Giacomo Rossi on the important role played by the microbiome in health and disease.

We are happy to meet with colleagues from the globe, have the opportunity to talk about the new products and introduce the ongoing projects. We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis, save the date!
