More than ever in the history of this country, pets are treated as family, they have equal billing in the family unit with Mom, Pop, and the kids. The human animal bond is stronger than ever. It has been said that you rarely remember details of your early childhood, except.....! Can you remember the name of your pet when you were 9-10 years old? Not only can most people remember the pet's name but also some special memories that relate to that pet. Pets are special to us, they bring us joy, they are always happy to see us, and are rarely in a bad mood.
So why should you read this web page? First, because you have a love of animals to be reading this and somewhere in your life there is or has been some furry four legged pet that makes you feel good about yourself. Second, you owe it to yourself to find out as much as possible about animal health care, the selection of your pet's doctor, and the maintenance of a quality and comfortable life for both of you.
Veterinarians are a special group of people. As a group, veterinarians are the nicest people you can ever meet. Certainly there are exceptions as with any profession, but as a whole the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) is one of the most caring and compassionate individuals you will ever know. As you read on, comments will be made that are a philosophy of Animal Health Center. These comments may not reflect the opinions of all veterinarians. If you are from the Valdosta area, we invite you to visit us. You will not regret it.
All veterinarians are not created equal. It is important that you choose a doctor for your pet that is not only competent but has a personality you can relate to, is professional in manner and appearance, and maintains a clean and up to date facility and equipment. Some people shop for price as a determining factor for veterinary care. This is a mistake!! You must realize that just because someone has a D.V.M. degree that the level of care will not always be the same. There is a wide variation in the level of care of all professionals. You must ask the right questions, visit the facilities, and question the staff to have any confidence of the care your pet will receive. If low price is what you desire, there will always be someone to accommodate you. If your concern is a long lasting relationship with a caring professional who will not only be your friend, but an advocate for your pet's health, then you may want to deeply consider the next few paragraphs which are the philosophy of Animal Health Center.
Because we care, the staff and doctors at Animal Health Center are committed to excellence. We are proud to say that we are accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). AAHA upholds rigorous standards, maintains that their members are a cut above, and inspects accredited hospitals to make sure their standards are being upheld. Even though all AAHA hospitals are not created equal, most are committed to being above average. Animal Health Center has attained a four year accreditation which is the highest offered by the AAHA. All of us are proud to be an AAHA hospital and we aspire to not only meet their standards but to excel beyond them.
Animal Health Center was awarded the Practice of Excellence award by Veterinary Economics, a major publication of the veterinary profession. To be recognized nationally as a practice of excellence helps us show that we are committed to the highest standards possible.
Dr. Richards was awarded the Practice Manager of the Year award in 1994 by the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association. This award signifies that not only is Animal Health Center an excellent medical facility but it is financially and procedurally sound. The hospital and Dr. Richards have received other awards honoring both as successful and medically adept.
Continuing education is a must for any veterinarian to keep abreast of new technology and medical advancements. This commitment to bringing pet owners and patients the most up-to-date care available is another indication of Animal Health Center's striving for excellence.
The commitment to excellence should also say that any time during normal hours an individual should be able to tour the hospital facilities. We are proud of our hospital and suggest that people visit us before they choose a veterinarian. The cleanliness of the surroundings should be very important to pet owners. Visitation, introductions to the doctors and staff, and touring the facility are the best way to pick the health care specialist for your pet. We would love to impress you with a visit to Animal Health Center. We promise you will not be disappointed and will notice immediately our commitment to excellence.
It is our desire that this web site be an inspiration for you to get to know us better, to come by and ask questions, and to suggest ways we can help you learn more about that special member of your family. ENJOY!
