AAHA Accreditation

Champions of veterinary excellence! 

We are proud to have been awarded the American Animal Hospital Association's top honor, AAHA accreditation.  Bassler Veterinary Hospital is the only AAHA-accredited practice in the greater Newburyport area, and is among the select 12% of animal hospitals in North America with this distinction.

Unlike human hospitals, veterinary hospitals are not required by law to be accredited.  Voluntarily subjecting our hospital to AAHA's rigorous review is our way of demonstrating transparency to our clients and the community.  AAHA accreditation is the standard of veterinary excellence.

To be eligible for AAHA accreditation, Bassler Veterinary Hospital was evaluated on 900 standards in 18 different categories that assess patient care, anesthesia, surgery, pain management, safety protocols, cleanliness, equipment, laboratory services, diagnostic imaging, client service, veterinary knowledge, and other key areas of pet health care.  We are delighted to say that we passed with flying colors, and received a perfect score in multiple areas including dentistry and contagious disease.

At Bassler Veterinary Hospital, we are dedicated to delivering excellent care to your pet.  My staff and I live by our mission statement, "We treat clients like family, and their pets like our own."  Because pets are our passion.  And keeping them healthy is our #1 priority.

We appreciate your confidence in us.

My family and I strongly recommend Dr. Heidi Bassler and her team at Bassler Veterinary Hospital. Above and beyond offering top-notch veterinary and medical skills, I truly felt we had an advocate for the health and well-being of our pet, and our family. Dr. Bassler personally goes the extra mile to care for animals, and comfort and educate their families. Whether for routine check-ups or emergency veterinary care, Bassler Veterinary Hospital is a regional treasure!

We visited Bassler Vet Hospital after our Pomeranian dislocated his hip on the ice. Dr. Bassler and her team had such a caring nature, attention to detail and overall knowledge...it was incredible. They are SO nice and they genuinely care about their patient's well-being. We had used a local Vet for our dog and two cats for a few years, but immediately switched over to Dr. Bassler after just one visit.

Bassler Veterinary Hospital is the best of the best. Word on the street is that if nobody can figure out what is wrong with your dog or cat, then you need to see Dr. Bassler. With this in mind, I brought my dog King to see Dr. Bassler when King was gravely ill and other vets were scratching their heads. Dr. Bassler took a detailed history, performed a thorough exam, and ran some special tests. And just as people said she would, Dr. Bassler diagnosed the problem and put King on the road to recovery. I am so grateful! Dr. Bassler is really friendly and also has a very nice staff. She also responds to my emails, which makes me feel valued and keeps me informed.
