Why Does Hospital Accreditation Matter?  

There are over 900 AAHA Standards which are set by experts in the various Veterinary disciplines.  We believe by voluntarily adhering to these highest standards of Veterinary Excellence, we offer you and your family pets the very best veterinary care and client service in San Francisco.

We are proud to be AAHA accredited since 1988.  There are many pet hospitals in San Francisco and we know you can choose to go to any of them.  Before you choose, ask if they are accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association.  Here at Balboa Pet Hospital, we have made a commitment to voluntarily maintaining higher standards than 85% of all Veterinary Hospitals in the United States and Canada.   Why?

Because our patients deserve excellence.
