Did you know? Some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals, only going in for an inspection when a complaint is filed by a pet owner. We don’t think this is good enough, which is why we chose to go above and beyond and become accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. We choose to be evaluated regularly by AAHA because we hold ourselves to a higher standard! TODAY IS OUR EVALUATION DAY!!!

These adorable pets are all deaf & available for adoption thru Petfinder. If you haven't heard of Petfinder & are considering a new pet, check them out first. If you have questions or concerns because you suspect your pet is deaf, please give us a call. It isn't always a sign of aging. http://owl.li/HAta30frrl6

A week from today is our AAHA facility inspection! AAHA stands for the American Animal Hospital Association & is an organization that is voluntary to join, but in doing so, you are required to withold a large number of standards determined by industry professionals. After answering an extensive list of questions on just about every topic imagineable relating to a veterinary hospital (including but not limited to customer service, anesthesia, radiology, patient care, surgery, contagious disease, housekeeping.....the list goes on) you go thru a facility inspection. You must get recertified every couple of years. This is an optional process, but means that we have met rigorous industry recommendations & is what we consider to be a high mark of honor. We first joined in 2012 & at the time were the 2nd practice in a 10 mile radius to acquire the status. Since then 1 other practice has become accredited. Overall, only about 12-15% of clinics across the country are! Please check out this link for more information on AAHA & what it means. http://owl.li/mJgS30frqV2

We'd like to draw your attention to a page on our website that has links to sites with some great information, including poison hotlines, a pet food recall center, pet insurance providers, and local specialty facilities, in addition to wildlife resources. This page can be found under the client center section, as well as pet care information section & is titled Useful Links. http://owl.li/2njF30bJZ70

A couple of weeks ago we were getting a lot of calls about what to do with injured (or supposedly injured) and/or abandoned wildlife. There's an amazing organization out of Black Jack, MO called Bi-State Wildlife Hotline http://owl.li/IUm330bK0cm with a great website offering a ton of information to help with these matters (not to mention a hotline for individualized help if needed). Please keep this resource handy as you never know when you might stumble across an injured bunny, turtle or bird.
