“Thanks to everyone at VCA ASEC for helping our Jake! He is doing so well! We took him on his first hike on Saturday and he was the happiest dog in the world! We were afraid that he would never walk again, but he has recovered beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you!”
~Jennifer H.

“Nan & I cannot thank you all enough for the care & consideration you gave our dear Zooey. Because of your great expertise & thoughtfulness–and a touch of good fortune and timing–our Baby Girl has completely returned to the crazy, goofy, willfull & amazing being she was before the bottom dropped out on our lives. I know her sister, Mazzy, is grateful as well.
Nan & I–and Zooey & Mazzy– want to extend our warmest love and regards to all of you. Thanks again.”

American Animal Hospital Association

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
