This logo and the plaque proudly displayed on our wall certifies that we are an Accredited Veterinary Hospital of Excellence, conforming to the stringent standards set by the Australian Small Animal Veterinarians (ASAV).
It is important that you are familiar with this logo and recognise which veterinary hospitals display it for your assurance of excellent service, facilities and all-round patient care.
Because your pet is an important member of your family, we set the highest standards for our animal hospitals. These standards are based upon what humans expect from their own doctors and medical facilities.
To ensure that we continually maintain the required standards, every Accredited Veterinary Hospital of Excellence is regularly inspected by an independent expert appointed by the ASAV who scrutinises the hospital facilities, case management and record keeping. Radiographic technique, quality and interpretations are
reviewed by specialist radiologists.
Overall each hospital must be able to prove to the ASAV that they maintain exemplary best practice veterinary medicine and surgery.
