WestVet Boise Maintains AAHA Accreditation

WestVet Boise is proud to announce that it has again achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). WestVet Boise maintained its AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility, and client service.

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited. Pet owners can trust that an AAHA-accredited hospital follows the AAHA Standards of Accreditation, which are continuously reviewed and updated by leaders in the veterinary profession to reflect changing best practices from the cutting edge of veterinary medicine.

AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry because they voluntarily choose to be evaluated on more than 900 quality standards that go above and beyond state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services.

“We are proud of what this means for our hospital and our team. Maintaining this accreditation demonstrates the ability of our hospital to meet the highest standards in the profession,” said Dr. Daniel Hume, WestVet Boise Medical Director.

WestVet Boise is a 24/7 emergency and specialty veterinary hospital serving more than 20,000 patients annually. The emergency team consists of critical care specialists, experienced emergency doctors, and the area’s largest number of certified veterinary technicians. In addition to emergency services, the hospital offers specialty services by referral to 12 specialties.

WestVet Boise is located at 5024 W Chinden Blvd., Garden City, ID. For more information, visit To learn more about AAHA accreditation, visit
