AAHA-logoThe American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits companion animal veterinary hospitals in North America. To become accredited by AAHA, our hospital must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client services, and be measured against the most rigorous standards in the veterinary industry. During the accreditation process, an experienced AAHA accreditation consultant visits our hospital, thoroughly examining our surgical suites exam rooms, medical records, drugs and supplies, protocols and procedures. The consultant evaluates us on approximately 900 standards that directly correlate to the quality of care we are providing for your pet. For more information about pet health care or AAHA accreditation, ask a member of our team or visit aaha.org.

All Veterinary hospitals are NOT created equal
Did you know?
Accreditation is required for human hospitals, but voluntary for animal hospitals.

We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. What does that mean for you? That means we hold ourself to a higher standard than other veterinary hospitals. Pets are our passion, and keeping them healthy is our highest priority. We strive to deliver excellent care because your pets deserve nothing less.
