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.

Pets age more rapidly than humans. With the aging process changes occur in the function of the body. Some of these changes can be seen from the outside: weight gain or loss, stiffness, dull haircoat, loss of sight or hearing. Some changes, however, occur internally and can’t be discovered without laboratory testing. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms of illness can be seen, in liver or kidney disease for example, organ damage is already in the advanced stages.
In order to detect organ damage in its early stages, when it can be treated most successfully, we recommend annual blood testing as part of your pet’s yearly physical examination once he or she is over 7-9 years of age. This blood testing can also be used to provide a baseline for comparison in the event of future illness, allowing us to identify changes that may assist in faster, more accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Test results serve double duty by providing information before surgery or dental procedures, allowing for safer anesthesia.
Early detection can mean
A longer, healthier
life for your PET.
