The Doctors and Staff of CPVETS
CPVETS has some exciting news to share with you!
While we have always strived for excellence, during 2016 we put in a lot of extra work, and are now proud to announce that we are one of the select few hospitals that are accredited through the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). In fact, only 12% of veterinary hospitals are! To achieve this honor, we underwent a rigorous evaluation that covered 900+ standards that addressed everything from patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, to continuing education.
What does this mean for you and your pets? Well, it means that you can rest assured that your pet is getting top quality care. "AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. The AAHA Standards of Accreditation are continuously reviewed and updated to keep our accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence."
