The Fairview Animal Hospital is an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Since 1985, we have regularly undergone evaluations by AAHA to ensure that we comply with the association’s high quality standards of care. These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, patient care, cleanliness, client service, emergency services, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. The AAHA accreditation process is rigorous and only about 7 percent of Animal Hospitals in North America receive this highly valued accreditation. You can visit their website  to learn more about AAHA.
