Accreditations & Certifications

Our mission has always been to deliver the highest level of care to our patients and clients. As such, we’ve voluntarily sought out accreditations that align with this mission. We are an AAHA-accredited animal hospital and many of our staff are Fear Free Certified Professionals.

AAHA, or the American Animal Hospital Association, sets the standards for veterinary excellence nationwide. The American Animal Hospital Association offers accreditation to only the highest performing animal hospitals, accrediting fewer than 15% in the country. Accreditation is based on maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness, customer service, veterinary technology, continuing education for vets and other team members, and so much more.

The doctors at Island Hammock Pet Hospital have completed Fear Free℠ training and certification. This means we have committed to doing everything possible to decrease fear, anxiety, and stress during trips to the hospital. This allows for a better experience for all involved- including pets, owners, and the veterinary team. To become certified, our doctors completed a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam. Annual continuing education is also required to maintain certification.
