Kimberly Crest Veterinary Hospital is a proud member of the American Animal Hospital Association
Did you know that accreditation is required for human hospitals, but voluntary for animal hospitals?
We've voluntarily chosen to go through the process of becoming accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) because we understand that your pet holds a valued place in your heart, and his/her health is important to us.
But, what does it mean to be accredited?
To be accredited by AAHA, our hospital must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service, and be measured against the most rigorous standards in the veterinary industry. Only 15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are AAHA accredited, and we're one of them!
During the accreditation process, we are evaluated based on AAHA's standards of Accreditation- an extensive list of approximately 900 standards that directly correlate to the care we are providing your pet. Some examples of these standards include:
- Diagnostic Services- We are required to provide x-ray and laboratory services in order to quickly and accurately diagnose your pet's condition.
- Onsite Pharmacy- After diagnosis, our onsite pharmacy gives us the ability to immediately begin treatment.
- Medical Records- AAHA requires that medical records be thorough and complete, ensuring that we better understand your pet's medical history and how past medical issues might be impacting their current medical status.

Thank you for trusting us with the care of your pets.
