Our mission is to compassionately care for, help, and heal our patients, prevent disease,
and honor the incredible power of the human-animal bond.
Gladstone Veterinary Clinic was built in 1981 and originally owned by Dr. Mohammad Abbas. The hospital was purchased by Dr. Merry Crimi in 1983 after the sudden death of Dr. Abbas. In January 2007, Dr. Crimi retired and Dr. Tanya ten Broeke purchased the clinic. Established originally as a small animal hospital by one veterinarian, Gladstone Veterinary Clinic is now home to three experienced veterinarians treating all companion animal species. Our dedicated team includes a Practice Manager, Certified Veterinary Technicians, Veterinary Assistants, Patient Care Specialists, Hospital Assistants, and Client Care Specialists. We work together to care for your pets as if they were our own. Kindness and high-quality care have always been an important part of the hospital culture.
Over the years, we have worked hard to develop long-lasting relationships with our diverse clientele, and have second and third-generation families that entrust us with their pet’s care. Our practice continues to grow by word-of-mouth referrals.
Thanks goes to each of you over the years who played a part in keeping Skittles as happy as possible. There is no doubt that he lived a long life of quality because of the veterinary care and treatment provided, Thank you again for all that you do.
We’re proud to be AAHA Accredited!
We are proud to have been an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association since 1984. Did you know that accreditation for animal hospitals is voluntary? Surprising, isn’t it? Nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe that their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In actuality, only 15% of animal hospitals have gone through the accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We are proud to call ourselves an AAHA-accredited hospital.
In the United States, all human hospitals that serve people with Medicare must be accredited through an accrediting body; they undergo regular reviews and quality checks to ensure they meet standards of quality for every aspect of medical care. However, not all animal hospitals choose to pursue the AAHA-accreditation process since it is not required by law. When it comes to pet health care, accreditation is voluntary. The accreditation process is rigorous and time-consuming, and not every veterinary hospital wants to go through the lengthy process.
Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain their accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. State and provincial regulations can vary widely – in fact, some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals, only going in for an inspection when a complaint is filed by a pet owner. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence and does not vary between states or provinces (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).
We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. That means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion, and keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets, because your best friends deserve nothing less.
