 We just received our AAHA re-accredidation!

We just received our AAHA re-accredidation. Our hard work has paid off, once again, and we're still among the top, elite practices in North America.

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is a non-profit organization for companion animal veterinary hospitals. Established in 1933, the association is the only accrediting body for small animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. The association develops benchmarks of excellence, business practice standards, publications and educational programs. Any veterinary hospital can join AAHA as a member, but must then pass an evaluation in order to receive AAHA accreditation.

Unlike human hospitals, veterinary hospitals are not required to be accredited. Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals in the U.S. and Canada that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services.

To become AAHA-accredited, practices undergo a rigorous evaluation process to ensure they meet the AAHA Standards of Accreditation, which include the areas of: Patient care, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, pain management, pharmacy, safety, surgery, client service, anesthesia, contagious disease, continuing education, dentistry, examination facilities, medical records, leadership and emergency/urgent care. To maintain accredited status, hospitals undergo comprehensive on-site evaluations every three years, which ensures that hospitals are compliant with the Association's mandatory standards.

I feel very lucky to have a place where our animals are cared for professionally and compassionately and one where I know they will be treated as individual patients and not just another number. Doctors Velasco and Runnfeldt are some of the best veterinarians in our area and I am very proud that we are able to utilize their services for our companion animal pet rescue.

Since the early 90s we’ve been coming to All Animal Clinic and just have to say, they are wonderful. Our dogs Zeus & Thor are happy, healthy, and appreciate the kind and caring atmosphere of the clinic. We’ve lived all over the country with our dogs nowhere has come close to keeping our animal family as happy and as healthy as All Animal Clinic.

My dogs have been clients of All Animal Clinic for 15 years. I have found the doctors and staff to be excellent in all areas of care. Their ability to diagnose and treat every situation I have taken them in for has been amazing. They are all professional, caring, and efficient. I recommend this clinic and their doctors without hesitation.

15 years ago we moved from California with seven dogs, and knew right away we’d have to find an excellent vet to care for our "children". Deciding on All Animal Clinic was the best choice we could have made. The facility is spotless and filled with the most modern equipment. The staff is professional and knowledgeable, caring and considerate. Most of all, the doctors are truly excellent.
