Veterinary practice guidelines help ensure pets get the best possible care. From medical director to veterinary assistant, guidelines keep your hospital staff on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine.

Last year, AAHA brought members guidelines on two of our most important topics to date—behavior and pain management—and now, we are proud to introduce a new set of guidelines focused on oncology.

Unfortunately, oncology cases are a regular part of veterinary practice, making diagnosis and treatment of cancer an essential part of comprehensive primary care. The 2016 AAHA Oncology Guidelines for Dogs and Cats will help ensure all pets benefit from the correct cancer diagnosis and management to maintain the best quality of life possible.

AAHA guidelines review the latest information to help veterinary staff address central issues and perform essential tasks to improve the health of the pet. In addition, AAHA guidelines define the role of each staff member so that everyone on the health care team can work together to offer the best-quality medical care.

Aligning your practice’s protocols with AAHA guideline recommendations is a key step in ensuring that your practice continues to deliver best-quality care.
