Desert Inn Animal Hospital: A “State-of-the-Heart” Practice

Desert Inn Animal Hospital is a progressive, team oriented, AAHA member hospital. We successfully practice "state-of-the-heart," as well as state-of-the-art, veterinary medicine in a modern 11,000-square-foot facility. Our veterinarians can provide many services, including laparoscopic surgery, endoscopy, ultrasound, and reproductive support.

Our family-friendly staff currently includes 10 veterinarians and an extensive support team of licensed veterinary technicians, assistant veterinary technicians, customer care specialists, pharmacy technicians, and animal caretakers.

In short, our passion for your pets, backed by five-star customer service, is our business.

We are proud to hold accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). It is an honor to be part of only 3,000 hospitals across the United States and Canada.

What is AAHA?

Established in 1933 by leaders in the veterinary profession, AAHA is the only exclusive companion animal veterinary association. AAHA is well known for its high standards in veterinary practices and quality pet care and promotes those standards within the veterinary profession and to the public.

AAHA develops benchmarks of excellence, business practice standards, informative publications, and educational programs designed to help companion animal hospitals thrive. AAHA believes in setting "The Standard of Veterinary Excellence."

Throughout the association’s 75 years, its mission has remained the same: provide veterinary professionals with the resources they need to effectively manage their businesses and deliver the best in companion animal care.

Why is this important to you?

Becoming accredited through AAHA is no easy task; this voluntary achievement means our staff strives every day to hold our hospital to AAHA’s standards of care.

Our practice and staff undergo constant continuing education to effectively bring our clients and patients the very latest and best medical care. There are more than 900 standards that we need to excel at every day—medical records, anesthesia, pain management, dentistry, surgery, client service, just to name a few.

In order to keep our accreditation, we have a consultant from AAHA who conducts an evaluation of our hospital, records, and services. Our last evaluation was in January 2013, and we passed with flying colors!
