As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited clinic since 1972, our team of veterinarians and support staff adheres to the highest standards of facility and pet care. Only 15% of all practices are AAHA certified (re-accreditation takes place every 3 years). However, our greatest source of pride is found in the praise of our clients and the satisfied purrs and wagging tails of our patients.

Get to know your veterinarian

We have found the key to quality veterinary care is a combination of medical competence, empathy for pet owners and compassion for our animal companions. Our veterinarians will listen to your concerns, diagnose any medical conditions, help you understand your options and work with you to make the right decisions for you and your pet.

At Sylvan Veterinary Hospital, our team is made up of a diverse group of veterinarians and support staff professionals who bring their love for animals to work with them everyday. Our veterinary team comes from all backgrounds, and they have joined Sylvan Veterinary Hospital because of their desire to make a difference in the lives of animals, as well as the people who love those animals.
