An Image stating that Happy Valley Veterinary Hospital is AAHA accredited

Not all animal hospitals are accredited. Nearly 60% of pet owners think their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In fact, only about 3,700 (12-15%) animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited.

What does accreditation mean? It means your hospital holds itself to a higher standard, and that your pet is receiving care at a hospital that has passed the highest standards in veterinary care. Learn more about what goes on behind the scenes at an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I had the best experience when I brought my puppy in to be neutered. They were so kind, helpful and sweet. I did not ever have to wait when for any of my appointments. They also called me a couple of times in the days following the surgery to make sure my puppy was doing okay and if I had any questions. I highly recommend them."
  • "We adopted two kittens from HVVH, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Walked my wife and I through what these kitties need (they're in rough shape just now), and let us have all the time we needed to meet the kitties, and decide which two we were taking home. Plus, no adoption fees, a year of free care, a goodie bag of toys, a full bag of food - they couldn't have done more to make us feel comfortable about our new family members."
  • "I brought my very sick dog in to Dr. Caldwell in a panic, never having had been there before. The doctor was calm, knowledgeable, compassionate - to both me and my dog. The medical facility uses the highest level of technology but the prices are less than my previous vet. The entire staff was friendly and professional, yet had a great sense of humor. I was so impressed, I immediately signed up for a wellness plan - I finally have found what I was looking for. Check out their website!"
