“We decided to go with Vets First Choice because number one we believed in the ethics and principles of the company we also like the way they do business and the way they stand behind us as a profession and as a veterinarian and as a vet hospital… if something goes wrong we know they're there.” -Dr. Tom
In February 6, 1894 the Virginia General Assembly was in session, and the Richmond Dispatch news coverage centered on the lawmakers and the happenings at the Capitol. That afternoon six veterinarians gathered at the office of Dr. W. H. Harbaugh, a surgeon in charge of the veterinary hospital on South Adams Street, a few blocks west of the Capitol. After a lengthy discussion of the various problems confronting the veterinary profession, both in the Old Dominion and the nation, the men took the action for which they had come together. The following statement was prepared and signed by the six: "We, the undersigned veterinarians, have organized ourselves into a society to be known as the Virginia State Veterinary Medical Association.”
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), established in 1863, is a not-for-profit association representing more than 86,500 veterinarians working in private and corporate practice, government, industry, academia, and uniformed services. Structured to work for its members, the AVMA acts as a collective voice for its membership and for the profession.
We are proud to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, which evaluates hospitals on more than 900 quality standards and recognizes those that go above and beyond what is required in the areas of patient care, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, pain management, pharmacy, safety, surgery, client service, anesthesia, contagious disease, continuing education, dentistry, examination facilities, medical records, leadership and emergency/urgent care. Participation in the AAHA accreditation process is voluntary.
