What is an AAHA Hospital?
AAHA is an acronym for American Animal Hospital Association. To qualify as an AAHA member, a hospital must pass extensive inspections to verify that they practice quality medicine in an up-to-date manner. The inspection involves surgery and x-ray facilities, record keeping, cleanliness of the hospital, and of course routine patient care. Our hospital receives an inspection every 3 years.
Can I bring my pet in without an appointment?
We strongly suggest that you make an appointment. We accommodate walk-in patients as best we can, though emergencies are seen immediately. All elective surgeries must be scheduled in advance.
What is the procedure for handling emergencies nights/weekends/holidays?

What type of information can you provide me about pet insurance?
