Basin Run Animal Hospital Achieves AAHA Accreditation
Basin Run Animal Hospital is excited to announce that we have attained AAHA accreditation!
Our practice was established in 1981 and has undergone changes and improvements throughout the years in keeping with the many ongoing advancements in veterinary medicine.
One of the biggest achievements the team has made, however, is our recent American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accreditation. This means that AAHA had to approve over 900 criteria at Basin Run Animal Hospital including medical equipment, customer service, medical protocol, and more.
The process is rigorous and continues long after the accreditation through periodic AAHA inspections.
What does accreditation by AAHA mean for me and my pet?
Human hospitals require accreditation from a board. Veterinary hospitals do not. AAHA hospitals are recognized as some of the best because they adhere to strict standards of veterinary excellence.
Being an AAHA hospital also means that your pet will be taken care of by veterinarians who know cutting-edge medicine and best practices.
Protect Your Pets, and Family, Against Harmful Parasites
Each year, many pets are diagnosed with diseases carried by insects and parasites. The cost of treatment can be expensive, and some diseases can lead to serious illnesses. Many of these parasites can even be transmitted to you and your family if your pet becomes infected.
Prevention is the best approach in protecting your pet, and family, against heartworms, parasites, and flea/tick infestations. Here’s what we recommend year-round:
- Heartworm Preventatives: They protect against the harmful disease spread by mosquitoes. They also help treat and prevent intestinal parasites like roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms.
- Flea/Tick Preventatives: Having your pet on monthly flea and tick preventatives protects them against fleas that transmit tapeworms and ticks that spread tick-borne diseases.
We can help you choose the right product for your pet based on his or her needs. Call us at (410) 658-5709 for more information.
