American Animal Hospital Association Accredited


Bethany Animal Hospital is proud to be an American Animal Hospital Association Accredited Veterinary Hospital. This distinction is achieved by fewer than 15 percent of the animal hospitals throughout the United States.

We believe in the principles of professionalism, high standards of veterinary care, and excellence established by the AAHA and work very hard to maintain our accreditation with this organization. Every three years Bethany Animal Hospital is subject to a comprehensive evaluation and inspection by AAHA. This evaluation includes our record keeping, diagnostic capabilities, surgical & anesthetic procedures, facilities, quality of medicine practice, pharmacy, emergency services, dentistry, nursing care, housekeeping, and continuing education of our medical staff.

Designated Cat Friendly Practice

We take seriously the need for routine veterinary care for your cat. Because of this, we at Bethany Animal Hospital have taken steps to become a Cat Friendly Practice by creating a practice that values the feline patient's distinct needs in both physical environment of the practice and the way in which medical care is delivered.

As a Designated Cat Friendly Practice, we have created a feline exclusive waiting room. Our special waiting room for cats and their owners provides a calm, quiet space to help reduce the fear and anxiety your cat may feel when leaving their comfortable surroundings.

Fear Free Certified Professionals
