Crestwood Animal Hospital offers the most comprehensive, quality, caring veterinary services in the area. Our mission is “to consistently provide our patients with the highest quality veterinary medical and surgical care as well as create an atmosphere of compassion and comfort that allows clients to make the best decision for their animal companions.” Did you know we even treat the police dogs of the Oldham County Police Department?
As an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), we are dedicated to providing quality veterinary care. As part of our accreditation, we are regularly evaluated on more than 900 rigorous standards by an AAHA consultant to ensure continued compliance. Only 17% of all veterinary hospitals in the nation have achieved this distinction. In fact, we belong to an elite group of practices that voluntarily meets or exceeds the association’s standards for patient care, equipment, and quality procedures. AAHA-certified practices are truly distinctive in providing the highest quality care for pets.

Did you know that accreditation for animal hospitals is voluntary?
Surprising, isn’t it? Nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe that their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In actuality, only 12-15% of animal hospitals have gone through the accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We are proud to call ourselves an AAHA-accredited hospital.
In the United States, all human hospitals that serve people with Medicare must be accredited through an accrediting body.
They undergo regular reviews and quality checks to ensure they meet standards of quality for every aspect of medical care. However, not all animal hospitals choose to pursue the AAHA accreditation process since it is not required by law. When it comes to pet health care, accreditation is voluntary. The accreditation process is rigorous and time-consuming, and not every veterinary hospital wants to go through the lengthy process.
Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence.
To maintain their accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. State and provincial regulations can vary widely – in fact, some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals, only going in for an inspection when a complaint is filed by a pet owner. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence and does not vary between states or provinces (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).
We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital.
That means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion, and keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets. Because your pets deserve nothing less.
