For Referring Veterinarians


At Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Care, we are committed to fostering and supporting the existing relationships between you, your clients and their animal family members. We recognize that your clients rely on your medical knowledge and trust your opinions. We are honored to be part of the health care team that provides your patients with the best chance at enjoying long, happy and healthy lives.

We take this commitment and our role as part of this team very seriously. From the moment your client reaches out to us or your patient arrives at our facility, you can be confident that they will receive the highest level of compassionate care. We pledge to remain diligent in our communications with you, keeping you informed and always including you in the decision-making process. We will also work closely with you to provide guidance and support for your patients’ after-care needs.

In emergency situations, we will work closely with the patient’s family to ensure optimal care. Once you’ve been notified that your patient is in our care, we will consult with you to determine what the next steps should be. Together we will work toward the shared goal of helping joint patients receive the medical attention they need for the best possible outcome.  We do share facilities with Noah’s Westside Animal Hospital, however, we are committed to maintaining your long-term relationship with your clients.  If your patient is provided care through our emergency service, all follow-up care will be directed to you and your team.

Should questions arise at any time about a patient that is in our care, we will always be available to discuss and address those concerns. We also welcome any and all feedback with the goal of continuously improving the level of service and care we provide.

AAHA-Accredited Hospitals: Champions for Excellent Care

Did you know that accreditation for animal hospitals is voluntary?  Surprising, isn’t it? Nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe that their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In actuality, only 12-15% of animal hospitals have gone through the accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).  We are proud to call ourselves an AAHA-accredited referral hospital.

In the United States, all human hospitals that serve people with Medicare must be accredited through an accrediting body; they undergo regular reviews and quality checks to ensure they meet standards of quality for every aspect of medical care. However, not all animal hospitals choose to pursue the AAHA-accreditation process since it is not required by law.  When it comes to pet health care, accreditation is voluntary.



The accreditation process is rigorous and time-consuming, and not every veterinary hospital wants to go through the lengthy process.  Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on  approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain their accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. State and provincial regulations can vary widely – in fact, some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals, only going in for an inspection when a complaint is filed by a pet owner. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence, and does not vary between states or provinces (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).


We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. That means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion. And keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets. Because your pets deserve nothing less.
