Waynesboro Vet Clinic

Waynesboro Veterinary Clinic has again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association.

The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health-care management.

Only 15 percent of all small animal veterinary practices in the United States have achieved accreditation by the AAHA. To maintain accredited status, the clinic must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association’s consultants.

Established in 1933, the AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices throughout the United States and Canada. About 3,200 AAHA-accredited practices pass regular reviews of AAHA’s stringent accreditation standards that cover patient care, client service and medical protocols.

Waynesboro Veterinary Clinic, located at 11420 Anthony Highway, has been an accredited practice member of the association since 1985.
