Today I will be as happy as a sea gull with a french fry.

Why do I enjoy working with animals or being in veterinary medicine?
Every day is a surprise, a challenge, and even one small face lick can teach you to love life.

AAHA Referral Accredited

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits small animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals are evaluated regularly on approximately 900 quality of care standards. Veterinary hospitals accredited by AAHA must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service and they are re-evaluated every three years to make sure they are keeping up with industry updates.

Choosing an AAHA accredited veterinary practice for your pet's medical care assures you that the practice has the facilities, equipment, staff, and medical protocols required for high quality care.

Because participating with the AAHA Standards and the Accreditation Program is voluntary, practices that earn AAHA certification have enough confidence in the level of their care to welcome measurement from an outside organization against the most rigorous published standards in the industry. Approximately 3,200 veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada have made a commitment to meeting the highest standards of veterinary care.
