World Association for Veterinary Dermatology – 2015
Five Years of Supporting the Worldwide Advancement of the Specialty
The World Association for Veterinary Dermatology (WAVD) is celebrating the 5th Anniversary of its name change from the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology Association. Along with the name change, the Association has transformed itself from an organization that primarily focused on planning of the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology to one with additional new programs and initiatives to better address global needs in veterinary dermatology.
