HISTORY/ACCREDITATION

American Animal Hospital AssociationVernon Woods Animal Hospital was established in 1973. We have been an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) since 1984.

AAHA sets high standards for veterinary care so only a small percentage of animal hospitals are able to achieve accreditation. To maintain our status, we are routinely evaluated to make sure that our facilities, equipment and protocols are of the highest quality.

We have eight veterinarians on staff and offer a complete range of services—medical, surgical, boarding, and grooming.
