Pet hospital gets special accreditation

The Juneau Veterinary Hospital received accreditation again from the American Animal Hospital Association, a recognition that only 15 percent of small animal veterinary practices in nation have received.

The evaluation included a review of the medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management. In order to maintain the status, the company must be evaluated regularly by the association's trained consultants.

The president of AAHA said in a statement that the Juneau Veterinary Hospital passed an evaluation of 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols.

The American Animal Hospital Association is an international organization of more than 34,000 veterinary care providers who treat pets.
