Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that the Associação Portuguesa de Médicos Veterinários Especialistas em Animais de Companhia (APMVEAC) welcomes all of you to the 48th World Small Animal Veterinary Association World Congress to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on 27-29 September 2023.

We are organizing, for the first time simultaneously, the WSAVA World Congress, FECAVA EuroCongress, FIAVAC Congress and APMVEAC National Congress.

Planning is well underway, and our team has been busy preparing for an unforgettable experience of learning and exploring, with the most up to date topics and highly qualified speakers.

The WSAVA World Congress is much more than a congress. It is a unique opportunity for our veterinary community to come together to learn, share ideas, and build relationships and friendships with colleagues from all over the world.

We invite you to plan your attendance now for the 48th WSAVA World Congress 2023.

The Organizing Committee and the APMVEAC invite you to participate in this one-of-a-kind Congress and enjoy a memorable experience appreciating the local culture and attractions of the region.
