WE'RE MOVING 2018 - 621 Hespeler Rd Posted on Oct 4, 2017

We Are Moving 2018 !
 
 Our brand new 13,500 sq foot hospital location will be conveniently located at 621 Hespeler Road, just across the street from our current location.  Our estimated new open date is the 2nd week in January.  
 
Our new facility was designed with pets and pet owners in mind to help reduce the stress of hospital visits as much as possible.  Reducing your pets stress is important to us so we have tried to facilitate reduction not only through our building design, but also with use of Adaptil & Feliway synthetic pheromones.
 
We are looking forward to the green space behind our building for dogs to have a safe area to walk, away from the busy street.   Our reception area will be more spacious, with a separate area designated for CATS ONLY.  
For dogs afraid of getting on the WEIGH  SCALE  .... Worry no more!   Our new scale will be sunk into the floor so your dog can just walk onto the mat for a stress free weigh in.    We are looking forward to showing our clients around the new facility so you can see the added touches that will improve our service to you and enhance your pets experience while in our care.    PLEASE WATCH OUR VIDEO !
 
 
Please stay tuned for Open House information in 2018
 
We look forward to serving you better !

We are AAHA Accredited Posted on Jul 22, 2017

 AAHA-Accredited Hospitals:

Champions for Excellent Care
 
 
 
 

March 30- April 2 2017 -  Animal Hospital of Cambridge is attending the AAHA Veterinary Conference in Nashville, Tennessee -  spending the week learning lots about current veterinary medicine, patient care and  how we can serve you better.   Our goal is to help you and your pet experience the best in veterinary medicine and client care.

Established in 1933, the association is the only accrediting body for small animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. The association develops benchmarks of excellence, business practice standards, publications and educational programs. Any veterinary hospital can join AAHA as a member, but must then pass an evaluation in order to receive AAHA accreditation.

Only veterinary clinics who are AAHA accredited can display the AAHA logo with pride.   If you want to bring your pet to a hospital you can trust to provide a high standard of care... then give us a call and come in for a tour !  519-624-9760
 
 
 
 

Did you know that accreditation for animal hospitals is voluntary?

Surprising, isn’t it? Nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe that their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In actuality, only 12-15% of animal hospitals have gone through the accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Animal Hospital of Cambridge is proud to call ourselves an AAHA-accredited hospital.

Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain their accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. State and provincial regulations can vary widely – in fact, some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals, only going in for an inspection when a complaint is filed by a pet owner. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence, and does not vary between states or provinces (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).

We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. That means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion. And keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets. Because your pets deserve nothing less.

MYTHS ABOUT NUTRITION Posted on Jan 30, 2017

 
 MYTHS ABOUT PET NUTRITION
NEWSTAT Article by AAHA
To view the full article - click here
 
 "Veterinarians are just as confused as pet owners by pet food marketing, and there is a lot of misinformation and mythology on the Internet regarding pet food,” says Larsen. "In particular, guilt-based or emotion-driven marketing and propaganda should be viewed with skepticism, especially when it is used to sell expensive pet food.” 

One of the common questions that many veterinarians are asked has to do with pet food choices; clients want to know what’s best for their pet. The topic of grains—and corn, in particular—as an ingredient in animal food often comes up. There is a great deal of conversation and many viewpoints about the use of grains in pet food. In this article, Trends takes a look into the role of grain in pet foods, attempts to dispel some of the myths, and provides expert recommendations, along with talking points, for veterinarians to use with clients.

 CORN MYTH:
 "As with any grain, when higher levels are included in the diet, protein digestibility can go down. That is why there are no ‘all grain’ diets for dogs or cats,” she says. "As a grain, it has a biologic value [a measure of the amount of essential amino acids in a food] of 74; muscle meats, such as beef and chicken, have a BV of about 75. Egg is the gold standard for BV at 100, with whey and casein [milk proteins] just below that.

"When corn is combined with other plant products, they together can easily reach a BV of 100. All plants, due to their cellulose layers, have decreased digestibility when compared to meats. But when ground and cooked, so that the cellulose layer is broken, digestibility is comparable,” Wortinger noted.
