At AHBC, we work hard to practice the best medicine. Our pet parents demand, and deserve, the very best.
The field of veterinary medicine is incredible and rewarding. It is also stressful and demanding. We chose it because we love it. We want to do everything possible to help pets live long, healthy, happy lives. Helping pets inspires us, drives us, and pushes us to be better every day.
The truth is: Veterinarians are not out to make money.
Every time we hear this—that we’re just trying to pad our pockets with fancy tests or treatments or medications—it hurts. The truth is vets and veterinary professionals care deeply about what they do.
We come to work before the sun comes up and leave after dark. We constantly consider how to take the best care of our patients. We strive to learn as much as we can to help them. We think about and discuss patient care at length. We go over and over what we can do better. And we love it.
We love what we do.
We love each and every patient. We love meeting pets and getting to know them. We love learning each animal’s unique personality, and we are resolute in our focus to help in any exact and unique way he or she needs, life long. We are proud to serve every pet and pet parent.
We believe taking care of animals is a cherished duty—even a calling. When we save a life, we are inspired. When we lose a patient, or help a pet parent say goodbye, we grieve. Every pet makes a mark on our practice, and our hearts.
Often we only get a moment, between saving a life or losing a life, to get ready for the next patient. We are always ready for the next patient. Because we believe every patient deserves our best.
We do this work because we care, not because we are greedy.
In fact, veterinarians and veterinary nurses are paid far less than human physicians and nurses with similar training. And vets frequently graduate from veterinary school $150,000 in debt.
We are your trusted ally in veterinary care. We recommend testing and prescribe medications when it is the best thing for the pet. We always have your pet’s interests at heart.
We practice the best medicine not to make money but because we care, and we love what we do.
