Our Seattle veterinarians are dedicated to veterinary excellence: we’re one of just 15% in the nation to be AAHA accredited
We know you and your pet deserve the best which is why our Seattle veterinary hospital team has committed to providing your pet with veterinary care based on the highest standards in the industry.
We joined a select group of veterinary facilities in the nation (only 15%) that have met the rigorous standards set forth by the American Animal Hospital Association. To be an accredited animal hospital requires a lot of hard work by our entire team. We are extremely proud of our accomplishment.
To receive our accreditation, an AAHA practice consultant visited our hospital and began the evaluation with a tour of our facility. This was followed by an in-depth discussion about how our practice accomplished the standards in each section.
We were evaluated on over 900 specific criteria in 18 different categories, encompassing the scope of what we do – from the medical care we provide, the diagnostic services we utilize, our record keeping detail, the safety standards we adhere to and the training of our staff, to the sophisticated equipment we use and the physical facility we have and maintain. We will be subject to regular inspections in the future to maintain our accreditation.
As an accredited veterinary hospital we have set our focus on meeting the advances in veterinary care and will continually re-evaluate our service and care to better serve your special companion. Please feel free to ask our staff for a tour of our veterinary hospital the next time you are in.
