Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital

Accreditations & Certifications

Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital goes above and beyond for its clients and patients. As an AAHA-Accredited Practice and Cat Friendly Practice, the doctors and staff at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital practice under especially strict regulations, all so your pet can receive the most superior veterinary medical care.


Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital has upheld the highest standards of veterinary care since 1979. Accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), animal medicine is our passion and area of expertise. We are dedicated to sharing our skills and experience with you and your pets.

Our hospital is routinely evaluated by AAHA to ensure we consistently practice over 900 standards of veterinary excellence including facilities, equipment, quality procedures, continuing education and more. Less than 15% of animal hospitals in the country hold this distinction and we are proud to be one of them!

Cat-Friendly Practice

Is a simple visit to the veterinarian a stressful process for you and your cat? If so, this is completely normal; most cats become upset when they are removed from their comfort zone and brought into an unfamiliar environment. Sometimes, the extent of this stress causes owners to skip their annual visits. At Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital, we hope to solve this problem so that all cats can get the health care they deserve. That’s why we have taken extra steps to make every feline’s visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible, which will make your visit much more pleasant as well!

We are proud to be certified as a Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). Our certification means that we have met criteria set by AAFP designed to make veterinary visits less stressful for cats and their owners. This involves implementing feline friendly standards such as a quiet waiting area designed to minimize stress, cat-only treatment areas, ongoing education on feline medicine and behavior, and training on handling techniques that make cats more comfortable. Additionally, our veterinarians and staff will be able to adjust to your cat’s needs throughout your visit. If your pet needs to be examined in the carrier, on the floor, or on your veterinarian’s lap, we will happily accommodate him or her.
