Gillette Pet Vet Clinic of Gillette, Wyo. has achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This prestigious accreditation is earned only after the AAHA conducts a rigorous review of the hospital's practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.
Only 15 percent of small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the association.
Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.
Gillette Pet Vet Clinic's Dr. Nicole Allee, DVM chose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine.
Because of this, it is widely known that pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet's health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team.
In addition, to maintain accredited status, Gillette Pet Vet Clinic must continue to be regularly evaluated, which ensures they stay on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.
Since their doors opened in December of 2013, the educated and experienced team at Gillette Pet Vet Clinic offers state-of-the-art care and client consultation services with the goal of promoting every pet's overall health and longevity.
Allee is a licensed and accredited veterinarian with over 20 years experience working in Campbell County with both large and small animal patients.
"We are an animal health care facility primarily devoted to the care of outpatients. We provide preventative care, medical, dental, surgical, and nutritional services to our canine and feline patients," Allee said of the services provided. "We also offer limited equine services including rabies vaccinations, Coggins testing, health certificates, and out-call euthanasia."
