The University of Pennsylvania's Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital has been named one of nine animal care trauma centers in the U.S. by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. Hospitals included in the trauma center network must meet several requirements. "This new designation creates a standard of care in veterinary medicine that didn't previously exist and provides pet owners with important information in the event of a trauma-related emergency," said veterinarian Armelle de Laforcade of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University and executive secretary of ACVECC.
