We understand that your pet holds a valued place in your life and your heart, so we have made it our goal to respect and honor that special bond by providing the best possible care for your pet. As part of that goal, we have chosen to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association and have our hospital measured against the most rigorous published standards in the veterinary industry.

The American Animal Hospital Association is the only organization that accredits small animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. The AAHA Standards of Accreditation, viewed as the standard of veterinary excellence, contain more than 900 individual standards, divided into 18 major sections. These areas of focus include patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education. AAHA is the only organization in the U.S. and Canada that accredits companion animal hospitals based on standards that go above and beyond state regulations.

Dr. K’s Animal Hospital has met and exceeded these stringent certification standards, and we are fully accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. Only 15% of animal hospitals are accredited. We follow the strict standards set by the AAHA to ensure that our patients receive the very best in veterinary care.
