In an effort to help veterinary practitioners elevate end-of-life care for companion animals, AAHA now offers an End-of-Life Care accreditation option for veterinary practices as part of the AAHA Standards of Accreditation .
Tamara Grubb, DVM, PhD, DACVAA, cochair of the 2020 AAHA Anesthesia and Monitoring Guidelines for Dogs and Cats , is excited about the new guidelines. “There are so many new things [that] I don’t even know where to start,” she told NEWStat .
