Preventive Healthcare

Published in 2011 (Sep/Oct)

Summary

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) have collaborated on the publication of new health guidelines for dogs and cats. Developed in response to startling statistics that indicate visits to veterinarians are declining while preventable diseases in pets are increasing, these guidelines are designed to provide the foundation for the veterinary practice team to promote preventive veterinary medicine.

The guidelines are a tool to help ensure complete checkups by providing a springboard for veterinarians to explain to their clients the importance of each step in the preventive care checkup, without being overly prescriptive.
