Main Content
We hope to make your visit to our hospital as enjoyable as possible for both you and your pet. We will make every effort to inform you of all aspects of your animal's health care including the cost of diagnosis and treatment. We pride ourselves on friendly service and clear communication.

Who do we see?

Dogs - Cats - Rabbits - Rodents
We don't see all the animals in the world, but if you have one of these, we would be happy to provide you with quality medical care. We see small animals, including dogs, cats and rabbits of all sizes, and all the range of pocket pets including hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, and guinea pigs.

How can we confirm that you practice good medicine?

We are proud to be an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA)

AAHA is an international association of more than 36,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. Established in 1933, AAHA is well known among veterinarians and pet owners for its standards for hospitals and pet health care. Approximately 3,000 veterinary hospitals voluntarily participate in the AAHA hospital evaluation program. Consultants regularly visit our hospitals to ensure compliance with AAHA's standards for services and facilities. Accreditation helps veterinary hospitals stay on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and provide the quality and range of services you and your pet deserve.

What kind of services do you offer?

Here are a few:

Pet Loss and Euthanasia Services
One of the services we offer that we feel very strongly about is our euthanasia service. We recognize how difficult a time this is for the entire family, and we have a plan in place to assist you in determining when the right time to euthanize is and how to best process this with your family. In many cases, the loss of a pet will affect the day-to-day lives of many of our clients more than the loss of a distant relative. We respect the bond you have with your pet and we will do everything possible to assist with this difficult period. We offer the use of our separate "comfort" room, which offers a peaceful place to say goodbye. We also offer multiple options for cremation.

Convenient
We offer evening appointments four nights a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) and all day Saturday. Our standard office hours are 7:30 - 8:00 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, on Wednesdays we are open from 7:30 - 6:00. Saturday hours are 7:30 - 6:00. This schedule offers you lots of options for complete appointments and drop-offs with phone follow-up for your convenience.

Integrated Medical Options
What does that mean? In short, we believe that many cases can, and should, be treated with conventional "Western" type of veterinary medicine. In acute cases this is not a close call. If a car hits your dog and you bring him in, we are not going to suggest Acupuncture. We also recognize that in some cases, we have been able to show significant responses where we were unable to successfully treat with standard Western Medicine. The types of alternative treatments we offer include Acupuncture and Bioresonance Therapy. Please see our alternative medicine options if you made it this far into the explanation.

Kitten and Puppy Packages
Lets be clear, we are not putting puppies and kittens in packages. But if you have one, we can provide you with a package of services to allow you of fully meet your new family member's medical needs with one inclusive package.

Friendly Doctors and Staff
It is our goal for you to not only receive the highest quality care, but to also understand what can be complicated situations and treatment plans. We fully recognize that clear communication requires full understanding, which is our goal. In short, if you don't completely understand any aspect of our interaction, please ask and we will fully explain the necessary portion of our exam or treatment plan.

Really good Baths!
When your dog or cat receives a bath from us, it is a deep down, smell good kind of bath. We include a professional nail trim and the ever-important anal gland expression that none of us like to do at home. You may not like to do it yourself, but everyone appreciates it when it has been done.

How about the accommodations?


For any animal that is recovering from surgery, or is currently under treatment, they are boarded in the treatment room to make them as visible as possible to every member of the staff, which ensures they are closely monitored at all times.

For felines:
Our fussy feline friends have the best room in the house, including a window to the outside world, and cat cages that allow for them to open into other structures providing endless amusement. This also allows us to board cats together when this makes them the most comfortable.

And for our canine buddies:
It is the Dogs life; the rooms are temperature controlled and include individual glass doors to allow the dog to see everything that passes near them. For what may be the first time, your dog may be housed in one of our kennels that include a flushing system for the removal of the, well, you know what. (What would great grandma think?)

So you treat rabbits?

Our staff and doctors love to work with our rabbit clients. Rabbits provide interesting challenges regarding restraint and anesthesia where we feel our experienced staff is a true asset to any rabbit lover. It is not just a dog or cat with long ears.

Veterinary Dentistry

This is one of our favorite areas of preventative medicine because the results in the quality of life, (and of breath) is so noticeably improved in so many cases. If you have a pet with bad breath or other obvious dental issues, we should be seeing your pet.

Surgical Services

We offer a state of the art surgical site where our doctors perform a wide range of surgical procedures.



*Additional Information about AAHA.

AAHA is an international association of more than 36,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. Established in 1933, AAHA is well known among veterinarians and pet owners for its standards for hospitals and pet health care. Approximately 3,000 veterinary hospitals voluntarily participate in the AAHA hospital evaluation program. Consultants regularly visit these hospitals to ensure compliance with AAHA's standards for services and facilities.

AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals voluntarily choose to be evaluated on 900 standards in the following areas: quality of care; diagnostic & pharmacy; management; medical records; and facility. Why does this matter to you? Here are a few examples of how AAHA's standards impact you and your pet.

The standards require hospitals to provide diagnostic services (x-ray and laboratory) so that they can quickly and accurately diagnose your pet.

The standards focus on the quality of care in the areas of: anesthesia, contagious diseases, dentistry, pain management, patient care, surgery and emergency care.

Accredited hospitals have an onsite pharmacy (another standards area) so they can begin treatment immediately.

AAHA standards also require that medical records be thorough and complete, which helps them to better understand your pet's medical history and how past health issues might be impacting their current medical status.

The Standards developed and published by AAHA are widely accepted as representing those components of veterinary practice that represent high quality care. The Standards are periodically reviewed and updated to ensure that they remain consistent with evolving knowledge and technology.

Accreditation helps veterinary hospitals stay on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and provide the quality and range of services you and your pet deserve.

Testimonial

AHOC has always taken such great care of my fur children. Even when it was the worst of times when a fur child was so sick and had to be freed from his pain they care so caring, understanding and I knew his loss hurt them deeply too. My Kaylee is a child to me and I trust them to take great care of her while I'm gone on a vacation where I cant take her with me. I highly recommend them and Im grateful to have them right next door to me.
