This week, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) will be hosting their annual conference at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona on March 14-17. More than 2,200 veterinary care providers from around the world will be in attendance to discuss and learn about the latest research on hundreds of topics concerning animal health care. As the only conference that focuses exclusively on companion animal care, AAHA’s yearly conference has been one of the most respected forums for the sharing of both scientific and management knowledge in the veterinary profession since 1934.
This year, they are demonstrating their support of rescued pets by featuring six Phoenix-area dogs who overcame catastrophic injuries to live healthy and productive lives.
These pet survivors stories illustrate the crucial bond between pets, owners, animal welfare groups and veterinarians who work together to improve the quality of life for pets. The program is part of the nonprofit group Rescue Operation for Animals of the Reservation (ROAR). This program is a part of the National Relief Charities that are dedicated to supporting the many animals who live on American Indian reservations, as well as the people who care for them.
Many of the emergency procedures used to save these animals’ lives are the same techniques and methods employed by human hospital ER rooms and combat surgery centers.
The conference’s team-focused learning structure attracts more practice teams than other veterinary tradeshow. For the growing number of attending veterinary care providers, the conference offers a rare opportunity to view new technology, products and procedures.
The AAHA conference registration takes place March 14-17, 2013 and is open to professionals in the animal care industry. Visit AAHA for more information or to attend the event.
