We consider care to begin from the first appointment to end of life for our clients. Our clinic is setup to provide services and care from your pet's first check-up and vaccinations to preventative measures for age-related disease and pain to keep your pet’s quality of life at a high standard throughout their life. Our mission at VCA Todds Lane Animal Hospital is to provide exceptional pet care and service to our clients. We strive to promote a friendly environment where tails wag, cats purr, and our clients find reasons to smile.
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.
As veterinary professionals, we know that the stress and anxiety associated with taking a pet to the veterinarian is a significant reason why pets don't always receive the medical attention they need. Fear Free℠ veterinary visits reduce feelings of stress, resulting in a better experience for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams. Having a Fear Free℠ Certified Professional can help alleviate your pet's fear, anxiety, and stress when visiting our hospital.
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.
