Pacific Animal Hospital: Exceptional Veterinary Care in an Award-Winning Hospital
At Pacific Animal Hospital, our doctors and staff are highly trained, compassionate, and kind. We understand that pets are beloved members of the family and work with our clients to provide the best medical care possible for their animal companions.
Our doctors and support staff are expected to increase their level of expertise and keep up with the continuously changing and growing knowledge base and technology in our profession.
We are advocates for the pet and always offer the best and most appropriate care available. We do not turn away clients and patients needing our help; therefore, we accept emergencies and urgent care appointments during business hours.
We work closely with our clients to ensure their pets receive the best care. If needed, we offer payment plans such as Care Credit. We can also help with decisions for deferring non-critical care over several months.
We are proud of our Core Values:
We are accountable for our actions, responsibilities, and goals.
We seek an appropriate work–life balance.
We engage in honest, forthright, and courteous communication.
We treat our patients, clients, and each other with understanding, kindness, and empathy. We care about the well-being and comfort of our patients, their families, and each other.
- Contribution and Teamwork
We understand that the full engagement and involvement of every individual is critical to our success and recognize that working together as a team produces far superior performance than that expected by adding together individual contributions.
We understand the importance of continually improving our skills and competencies. We are committed to setting and reaching our professional goals.
We believe humor and fun enhance our work environment.
We are honest and ethical in our approach to client and patient care.
We sincerely care about our organization, patients, clients, and each other.
We value and show respect for our patients, clients, and each other.
We embrace a “client- and patient-centered approach” to the delivery of client and patient care and continuously work to provide the best possible experience for both.
We understand that trusting each other is fundamental to attaining our vision and goals.
In addition, we are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital, adhering to the highest standards of excellence in veterinary practice. AAHA standards are recognized around the world as the benchmark for quality care in veterinary medicine. Our hospital is evaluated on over 900 standards including surgery, dentistry, medical records, cleanliness, laboratory, nursing care, diagnostic imaging, exam room facilities, management, emergency procedures, and anesthesia. Our accreditation demonstrates our commitment to the highest standards of veterinary care. Only about 15% of veterinary hospitals in North America are accredited by AAHA. Learn more about these standards at the American Animal Hospital Association website.
