2022: The year in veterinary news
What a year 2022 has been in veterinary medicine.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) revised its recommendations for pre-exposure rabies vaccination for people, including veterinary personnel. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) released new guidelines on pain management in dogs and cats. The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) issued a call for better protection of the title “veterinary technician.” And a veterinarian was elected to be Nebraska's next governor.
