Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center achieves high level of veterinary excellence

RUTLAND —Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center has once again achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).  The clinic became accredited in 1963 and has continued to remain accredited for over 50 years.

Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.

Dr. Rob Macpherson, owner of Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center, says that maintaining the prestigious accreditation requires an exceptional level of medical care and client service from the practice team.

“AAHA accredited hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols,” Macpherson said. “By achieving this status, we are demonstrating our commitment to provide the very best care to our patients and pet owners, each and every day.”

Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center provides routine veterinary medicine and surgery, including preventive care exams, vaccines, spays, neuters, dentistry, x-rays, ultrasounds and laser therapy.  They also offer boarding, grooming and daycare, and sell pet food.  Emergency service is available 24/7, 365 days a year.  The team of veterinarians includes Dr. Rob Macpherson, Dr. Robin Crossman, Dr. Heidi Crane and Dr. Michaela Wozniakewicz.
