We are AAHA Accredited and designated Gold Level Cat Friendly!
We attend local and national continuing education courses and use Veterinary Information Network VIN to keep up to date in all areas of medicine, surgery, integrative care and nutrition.
What is AAHA Accredidation?
AAHA accreditation is only achieved by 12% of veterinary clinics nationwide. It is a voluntary inspection, consultation and standardization process that no other profession (medical, dental, chiropractic, etc) has.
Successful accreditation requires passing over 900 individual standards ranging from how we store and regulate our medications to how we administer anesthesia and keep our hospital sanitary.
These standards are there for one reason…to elevate the quality of pet care we deliver. Our clinic has had AAHA accreditation since 1995 and is one of just six clinics in Madison (including the UW Veterinary School) to achieve accredited status.
The re-accreditation process takes place every three years and we just completed the first one in our new facility in September of 2014. Standards are upgraded every year to raise the bar for the delivery of excellent pet care.
Cat Friendly Designation is relatively new designation designed to insure your cats veterinary experience is a stress free as possible! From the beginning instructions we provide on transporting your cat to our clinic to the individualized approach we take for each cat we will do our best to insure they don’t mind returning the next visit! Some even enjoy it especially those that visit Bugs Cat Gym!!
