The Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians (ARAV) is a veterinary organization promoting conservation and humane treatment of all reptilian and amphibian species through education, captive breeding, and habitat preservation.
We advance programs for preventative medicine, husbandry, and scientific research in the field of veterinary medicine dealing with reptiles and amphibians. Also, we distribute scientific information relating to the field of husbandry, veterinary medicine and surgery of reptiles and amphibians through the Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery, the official publication of the Association, and the Annual Conference of the Association.
Membership in ARAV includes a subscription to the Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery. All membership terms are based on a calendar year from January 1st through December 31st.
