Finding a good veterinarian is hard. We have made a checklist for you to compare veterinarians when you are looking for a new veterinarian:
1. Is the Veterinarian AAHA Accredited?
You can search on http://www.healthypet.com. The top veterinary hospitals in the country tend to be AAHA accredited. This association has been the premier authority on accreditation in the United States. AACC is AAHA Accredited.
2. How long has the business been in operation? Is this a brand new venture or is it an established business?
We have been in business since 1986.
3. Is the animal hospital a national corporation? Are they family owned? How does the animal hospital give back to the community?
American Animal Care Center gives tens of thousands back to local non-profits in the Tri-City areas. We started with humble roots and have been a product of Fremont’s success. Community service and giving back are one of the pillars of values at American Animal Care Center. We were awarded small business of the year by the 20th assembly district.
4. Is the animal hospital available when I am? Are they open on weekends? Are they open in evenings? Do they offer early morning drop offs?
American Animal Care Center is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year including weekends and evenings.
Here’s more on why American Animal Care Center is the best veterinarian in the bay area.
Routine Health Examinations & Physical examinations are necessary for the health of your pet says American Animal Care Center

Routine Health Examinations Are Necessary!!!
“An ounce of prevention…”
Remember the old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? That happens to be as true for the health of your pet as it is for any member of your family!
Annual health examinations will help determine the general well being of your pet and identify potential problems. Early detection ensures prompt action that may solve the problem before serious consequences occur and may prevent suffering.
The gradual onset of health problems in an apparently healthy pet often go unnoticed. Once symptoms appear, the condition may be too difficult or costly to diagnose and treat. Age is not a disease; however, there are many conditions, that if diagnosed early, can be completely reversed or controlled for extended periods of time.
At least once and perhaps twice a year, your pet needs a complete physical examination. Remember, your pet’s lifespan is shorter than ours. A lot can happen in 12 months.
Due to the many recent discoveries and innovations in veterinary medicine, your pet can be protected from most major diseases. Today, many immunizations and preventive treatments are available that did not exist just a few years ago. The staff at American Animal Care Center can help you decide what preventive measures are necessary for your pet(s).
