AAHA Standards

We understand that your pet holds an important place in your life and your heart. We respect and honor that special bond by providing the best possible care for your pet. As part of that goal, we have chosen to be accredited by AAHA and are among the elite 15% of veterinary practices throughout the United States and Canada that have made this voluntary commitment to excellence.

Being accredited means our hospital must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service. AAHA’s standards cover every aspect of our hospital to assure your satisfaction with the level of care both you and your pet receives.

We are proud of this honor, as it keeps us on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and continuous improvement. These are keys to delivering the quality and range of services you expect and deserve for your pet.

“Overall experience was like no other…warm, friendly, and personable, yet professional and informative. Pricing was comparable to past veterinary experiences, and by no means unreasonable. Office and exam room were clean, fresh, and neat. Berkeley Veterinary Center may have a customer for life!”
