If you scroll down near the bottom of our webpage, you’ll see this collection of logos for the affiliations our practice belongs to. Just in case you’re wondering, here’s what they are:
AAHA. We’ve already told you about our AAHA Accreditation. AAHA stands for American Animal Hospital Association, the organization that sets the standard of Veterinary Excellence.
IVAPM. Whether your pet has been hit by a car, needs a dental procedure, or has chronic arthritis, we’re committed to providing the most appropriate pain relief possible. The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management brings veterinarians, researchers, teachers, and corporations together to share knowledge about the treatment, management, and the biology of animal pain.
NCVMA. Our membership in the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association gives us a great way to communicate with other practices in our state and to coordinate efforts on continuing education. The group also monitors veterinary legislative issues keeps us up to date on all recalls.
AVMA. We love being a member of The American Veterinary Medical Association. They provide us with timely information (like product recalls) and great continuing education opportunities. And they lobby congress for animal friendly legislation.
AND we just joined the
AAFP. That stands for the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We’re excited about this group, and are working on receiving their “Cat Friendly Practice” certification. We’ll keep you posted on this!
Our goal is to always provide the very best of care. Being a member of these organizations is just one of the ways that we ensure that we’re doing that for you and your pets.
