Pets are our passion, and keeping them healthy is our number one priority. We strive to deliver excellent care for pets—because your pet deserves nothing less.
We pursue accreditations and certifications based on high-quality standards encompassing all aspects of veterinary medicine—from pain management and patient care to team training and medical recordkeeping. We also understand the importance of the vital role the human-animal bond plays in the health and wellbeing of people, pets, and communities.
Today, only 12%–15% of veterinary practices in the US and Canada hold the “AAHA-accredited” designation, and we are proud to be one of them!
We take our standards seriously.

Human-Animal Bond Certification
As veterinary professionals, we feel an obligation to support and improve the human-animal bond. Our hospital is Human-Animal Bond Certified, allowing us to continue to improve the health and wellbeing of both pets and their people.
Pets are more than our companions. Science demonstrates that the health benefits of the human-animal bond can have a positive impact on every stage in life. Pet ownership can help keep you healthy and improve your quality of life as you age.
Owning a pet can increase your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. By taking care of your pet’s health, you are also taking care of your own. Studies have shown a reduction in risk for heart attack, feelings of loneliness, and stress in pet owners compared to non-pet owners.
