SWEDESBORO, NJ, August 02, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wedgewood Pharmacy has been named the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) preferred supplier for compounding services.

It is the only exclusive veterinary companion animal association in North America, serving nearly 50,000 individual veterinarians.

Both organizations represent the highest standards in our veterinary health segments.”

Chamberlain, Chief Value Officer of AAHA, added: “Our members count on us to provide tools and resources that improve their practices and provide immediate value to their pet owners and patients. Including Wedgewood Pharmacy in our Preferred Business Provider Network represents another example of the association providing tremendous value to everyone we serve, both directly and through our members.”
