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.
Caring for pets means meeting a wide range of needs beyond health care. Fortunately, there’s a whole community of organizations and businesses eager to help.
Here’s where to meet the local groups that we recommend to our pet-loving families.
Airport Pet Emergency Clinic
"What do I do? My pet is sick and my veterinarian is closed!"
Let us help you. Your pet is a member of your family and you don't have to wait to provide him/her with the highest quality medical care. Airport Pet Emergency Clinic (APEC) was established in 1994 in a small building across from the Tri-Cities Airport. The goal then, and what we continue to strive for now, is to provide help for those animals and owners who are struck by something unexpected in the 'off' hours. APEC operates around the normal veterinary clinic hours to meet your pet's emergency needs. We are fully staffed over night during the week (6pm - 8am) and open our doors at 6pm on Friday, not to close until Monday morning at 8am.
