Whether you and your pets are new to AHNA, or if you’ve been seeing us for years, you have probably noticed we do things a little differently here. Treats are offered generously, pets are examined on soft, cozy blankets instead of cold metal tables, and you’re welcome to accompany your pet nearly everywhere they go in the hospital. These are examples of our efforts to reduce any discomfort, fear, anxiety and stress that your pet may experience during their visit.

Congratulations to the dedicated families who participated with their canine companions in Dog-Ed's recent Saturday Training classes held in the AHNA Education Room. These classes, taught by Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed, were not only fun filled but they help families to teach and strengthen basic manners. Jenny's classes strengthen the bond between families and their pets while helping the dogs become polite members of the community.
