Established in 1933 by leaders in the veterinary profession, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization to accredit companion animal veterinary hospitals in the US and Canada. Nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe their veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In actuality, only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited by AAHA. Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.
We’re so fortunate that Baylie’s veterinary clinic, Cobbs Ford Pet Health, LLC, which is within a mile of our house, is AAHA accredited. It gives us peace of mind knowing that she will get exceptional care. AAHA-accredited hospitals undergo evaluation on approximately 900 rigorous standards and are dedicated to excellence in companion animal health care.
What does accreditation mean? It means your hospital holds itself to a higher standard, and that your pet is receiving care at a hospital that has passed the highest standards in veterinary care. AAHA sends consultants to AAHA-accredited veterinary hospitals every three years to evaluate hospitals on their adherence to the AAHA Standards of Accreditation.
Just when we thought we had seen every pet product innovation out there, we are blown away by the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System. The CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System is a new product to aid in relieving pet anxiety.

Zuke’s is excited to announce the launch of their annual social media campaign “Fuel the Love – Fuel the Cure” starting on May 1 through June 30, 2015.

Six million dogs and a similar number of cats are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States.

A HOLISTIC LINE OF ultra low glycemic, grain & potato free FOOD FOR DOGS
When it comes to nutrition, it makes no difference if you have two legs or four. In order to live life to the fullest, a body needs good, healthy fuel; not junk.
We are a household of health-conscious eaters and that transcends to our pets, as well. So, we were thrilled when the folks at Dogswell® offered us the opportunity to sample their LiveFree® ultra low glycemic dog food. What sets Dogswell LiveFree® Dog Food apart from others? It’s packed with a boatload of premium protein with zip, zilch, zero grain and potato fillers. The ultra low glycemic natural formula is made from responsibly-raised ingredients with the #1 ingredient being protein.
A local dog became ill after eating the infamous jerky treats we have all read about. We are so happy Buddy is on the road to recovery. Tests revealed that the treats Buddy ingested included the chemical Deet (active ingredient in many insect repellents) and Amantadine (used as an antiviral drug used to treat Avian Influenza).
April is Heartworm Awareness Month. Is your pet heartworm free? Dogs are considered the definitive host for heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis). However, heartworms may infect more than 30 species of animals (e.g., coyotes, foxes, wolves and other wild canids, domestic cats and wild felids, ferrets, sea lions, etc.) Feline heartworms are more deadly and difficult to treat.
