  22. American Hospital Association • AAHA • Small animal Veterinary association providing veterinary professionals with resources • Back

  23. Antibody; antiobiotics • Ab • Destroys the growth of microorganisms • The drug that destroys the growth of microorganisms • Back

  24. Arterial blood gas • ABG • Blood test that determines concentration of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and bicarbonate • Back
