The Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association (JAAHA) team said farewell to long-time Associate Editor and Section Editor Linda Ross, MS, DVM, DACVIM, in March 2022, and welcomed a new Associate Editor into the role. 

“Linda has been outstanding in her dual roles of Associate Editor and Section Editor,” said JAAHA editor-in-chief Alan Rebar, DVM, PhD, DACVP. “Her vast experience and expertise in companion animal medicine have made her an invaluable resource not only in identifying and recruiting exceptional section editors and reviewers, but also in dealing with the many technical, complex, and sometimes controversial issues that fall to the editor in chief.”  

Ross, an associate professor emeritus at the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, is a board-certified specialist in small animal internal medicine, with a special interest in nephrology, urology, and endocrinology. During her time at JAAHA, she was an Internal Medicine Section Editor for the journal, and worked as the Associate Editor with Rebar from 2015-2022.

“Since the beginning of her tenure, Linda has always been my collaborator and peer in regards to setting the course for JAAHA policies,” Rebar added. “She will be missed.”

The entire JAAHA team would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Ross for her years of service to JAAHA and contributions to the profession, and wishes her all the best in her future endeavors.

Ann Hohenhaus, DVM, DACVIM, officially took over the role of Associate Editor in March, and will also take over Ross’ position as a Section Editor for the journal. Hohenhaus is currently Senior Veterinarian, Director of Pet Health Information at the AAHA-accredited Schwarzman Animal Medical Center (AMC) in New York City.

“The Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association has been a constant resource during my veterinary career,” said Hohenhaus. “I’m honored to take on this new role and look forward to working with the JAAHA team.”

Hohenhaus is double-board certified in small animal internal medicine and oncology, and maintains a clinical practice in oncology, internal medicine, and primary care. At AMC, Hohenhaus also creates content related to pet health care and the role of pets in public health, pens the AMC blog, hosts a monthly on SiriusXM radio show and podcast, and serves as AMC hospital spokesperson for various media outlets.

“I am thrilled that Dr. Ann Hohenhaus has agreed to join JAAHA as Associate Editor and a Section Editor for Internal Medicine,” Rebar said. “She is an outstanding clinician who is widely published and is recognized nationally and internationally for her expertise in companion animal medicine and oncology.  She brings great energy and enthusiasm as well as new ideas to her new roles with JAAHA.  I look forward to our partnership.”

The AMC is the world’s largest nonprofit animal hospital with more than 120 veterinarians providing medical care across more than 20 specialties and services. AMC, the only Level 1 veterinary trauma center in New York City, also operates an emergency service, which is open 24 hours, every day of the year.
