Animal Health Care of Marlboro located at the intersection of Route 9 South and Union Hill Road in Monmouth county, NJ has once again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association.  This evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the animal hospital's facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management.

Only 15 percent of ALL small animal companion veterinary practices in the US have achieved accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association.  Inorder to maintain accredited status, Animal Health Care of Marlboro must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association's consultants.

Animal Health Care of Marlboro belongs to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting the highest standards in veterinary medicine.  AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards in animal health care covering patient care, client service and medical protocols including pain management protocols a recently added and important standard of care says Dr. Tepper.  By attaining accreditation, Animal Health Care of Marlboro is demonstrating our dedication of the professional team of animal care givers in offering the best care to our patients and their people, our clients remarks Dr. Breitstein.

Established in 1992, Animal Health Care of Marlboro has been accredited every year since 1993 (after one year of practice) which was the earliest a veterinary hospital could be evaluated to pass working standards. These rigorous evaluations are important to us both personally and professionally so that we know we are adhering to a higher standard of care, according to the veterinarians and team members of the animal hospital.

The American Animal Hospital Association, established in 1933, is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices throughout the US and Canada for dedication to high standards  of veterinary care.  Approximately 3,000 AAHA-accredited practices pass regular reviews of AAHA's stringent accreditation standards. for pet care information or referral to an AAHA-accredited practice, visit www.healthypet.com.
