Veterinary hospital earns reaccreditation
SALISBURY – Bassler Veterinary Hospital has been reaccredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, maintaining its place among a select group of veterinary facilities nationwide.
Only 12 percent of animal hospitals across the country have attained AAHA accreditation, and Bassler is the only veterinary practice in Greater Newburyport to have earned this distinction.
Most pet owners think their hospital is accredited when it is not, according to AAHA.
“To achieve reaccreditation, we opened our doors and let AAHA evaluate us on over 900 veterinary medical standards,” said Dr. Heidi Bassler, the hospital’s primary veterinarian and owner, in a press release.
The comprehensive evaluation covered patient care, anesthesia, dentistry, surgery, pain management, safety protocols, client care, cleanliness, laboratory services, radiology, veterinary knowledge, and other key areas of pet health care.
