Ottawa Animal Hospital Achieves High Level of Veterinary Excellence

LAKEWOOD, CO—Ottawa Animal Hospital has again achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Ottawa Animal Hospital earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.

"I would like to congratulate Ottawa Animal Hospital on vigilantly keeping up with advancements in veterinary medicine and adhering to the Association’s high standards," said Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP, AAHA executive director and chief executive officer. "They are clearly committed to doing their very best as evidenced by the hard work and effort they put into this voluntary process."

AAHA is the only organization in the United States and Canada that accredits companion animal hospitals based on standards that go above and beyond state regulations. The Association is an international organization of 6,000 veterinary care teams, comprised of more than 45,000 veterinary professionals, who are committed to excellence in companion animal care. Established in 1933, the Association is well-known among veterinarians for its leadership in the profession, high standards for veterinary practices and pet health care, and most importantly, its accreditation of companion-animal practices.

The AAHA Standards of Accreditation, viewed as the standard of veterinary excellence, contain more than 900 individual standards, divided into 19 sections. These areas of focus include: patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology and continuing education.

Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, Ottawa Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.

Ottawa Animal Hospital has two locations, located at 2691 120th Ave. and 620 Butternut Dr. in Holland, Michigan. They can be reached at 616-396-7420 or online at http://www.ottawaanimalhospital.com.
