Welcome to the ABVA




The Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists was formed in 1987, as a result of a growing interest in acupuncture by veterinary surgeons in the UK.


The aims of the Association are:

> to further the research and teaching of veterinary acupuncture through an organised programme of continuing education
> to encourage the safe and competent use of acupuncture in veterinary medicine
> to ensure that animal owners in the UK may contact veterinary acupuncturists from a credible source


The ABVA maintains standards of education, ethics, practice and discipline to ensure the health and wellbeing of animals in the UK. It provides a basic standard for the clinical application and integration of this ancient – yet progressive – medicine into veterinary practice.
