NASHVILLE, TN -- Julie Ann Hass, DVM, MS of North West Oakland County  has been certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in Canine and Feline Practice.

Dr. Hass mastered a rigorous and demanding application process and certification examination in order to obtain Diplomate status. To qualify to sit for the extensive, two-day examination, a veterinarian must complete either a residency program or six years of clinical veterinary practice. In addition, two case reports, references, descriptions of practice procedures, and professional education records must be submitted and pass review. This year's examination was given on October 29th and 30th in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dr. Hass is a graduate of the Michigan State College of Veterinary Medicine and has completed a internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine as well as received a Masters of Science from The Ohio State University and completed a residency in veterinary neurology. She practices and is co-owner at Veterinary Care Specialists and VCS Pets First located at 205 Rowe Road in Milford for over 17 years. The combination of Veterinary Care Specialists and VCS Pets First creates a 24/7 full service community hospital that provides specialty care, emergency care and general medicine and surgical care under the same roof.

The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners was established in 1978. It is one of twenty-one veterinary specialty groups accredited by a special committee of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, a division of the American Veterinary Medical Association, to recognize excellence in clinical practice through the certification of species-oriented specialists. Over 900 veterinarians worldwide are certified in one of ABVP’s ten practice categories: Avian, Beef Cattle, Canine and Feline, Dairy, Equine, Exotic Companion Mammal, Feline, Food Animal, Reptile and Amphibian and Swine Health Management.
