Your Pet Deserves an AAHA-Accredited Practice
At Leesburg Veterinary Hospital, we are proud of the work we do and are always looking for ways we can improve the care we give to you and your pets. That's why we sought accreditation as an AAHA practice. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the governing body for accreditation and is the only organization to offer accreditation of this kind. They hold animal hospitals to their rigorous standards of excellence, so you know that an AAHA vet offers the very best care for your companion.
What it Takes to Be an AAHA Vet
Accreditation is not a requirement for animal hospitals. In fact, according to AAHA, only about 12-15% of animal hospitals are accredited in the US and Canada. While individual states do perform inspections of hospitals, this is done minimally, and standards can vary greatly between states. Our voluntary decision to become an AAHA vet practice is based on our commitment to animal health and the greater pet community. We know you value your pets like family, and we want to treat them as such. We give them the best care because we know that's what they deserve.
To remain accredited, we undergo an inspection every 3 years and are subject to random inspections in between. Everything about our animal hospital needs to be top-notch, and we wouldn't have it any other way. AAHA standards are set for every area of an animal practice including:
- Cleanliness and hygiene
- Surgical equipment
- Anesthetic protocols
- Dental care
- Pain management
- Emergency services
- And much more
We are proud to be able to serve you with the highest standards of veterinary care. Please contact us today for more information or set up your appointment to experience the AAHA difference.
Best vet in Loudoun! The staff here are just outstanding! Every doctor here is super knowledgeable and caring toward your pet. I was invited in the back on one of my visits and they keep the hospital immaculate. I would never go anywhere else!
My animals have been going to see Dr. Melburger for many years. The staff is also amazing. You can tell that they truly love animals as well and it’s not just a job for them. I would recommend this office to anyone.
I cannot say enough kind words about this place. Leesburg Veterinarian has a lifetime client here. Thank you again!
The entire team at LVH works hard to provide excellent care to my pets. Dr. Strickland and his team have been there for my pets for 20 years; from adoption to end of life. I highly recommend them.
I absolutely love Leesburg Veterinary Hospital. It is more than worth it for me to drive the 30 minutes to get there. Thank you guys soooo very much. You are phenomenal!
We just had our first happy visit and it was the most wonderful experience. The staff made us feel so welcome and just let us sit on floor and wander around. They truly care about their patients and about making them feel comfortable. I have recommend them to all of my friends for their animals and they are all as equally impressed as I am.
Visited Leesburg veterinary hospital when I wanted a second opinion and access to better technology. I am grateful for the peace of mind and although it is a bit of a drive I think I will be returning for regular care. Can't say thanks enough!
The staff and doctors were awesome and treated us with the upmost respect. They treat your pets like family and have all the concerns to treat them in a safe and healthy manor. Dr. Henly was Awesome!!!
I have been taking all my animals to the Leesburg Vet Hospital for forever!! I absolutely recommend them to ANYONE looking for a new vet!
