About Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital 

About Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital and Pet resort Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital and Pet Resort was established in 1991 and the current owner, Dr. Jeffrey Jenkins, purchased the practice in 1999.  

Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital and Pet Resort is a full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care, as well as full service boarding and pet daycare services.  

We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through our in-house laboratory testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local specialty practices when special diagnostic procedures or referrals are required. Our facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house digital x-ray capabilities, ultrasound, endoscopy, acupuncture, laser therapy, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor pet daycare and boarding (separate areas for dogs and cats) with outdoor exercise areas.  We also provide boarding for our exotic and avian friends.

Additionally, we are fully stocked with products to fill your pet's hygiene/grooming and dental care needs, as well as other needs, such as healthy treats, chews, and hypoallergenic products for the more sensitive pet.

At Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital we strive to offer not only sound advice and pet education, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.  Exceptional care and quality service are important aspects to consider when evaluating a veterinary hospital to entrust with the care of your pet.  This is why we focus on providing exceptional service and care at each and every visit.

As a progressive practice, our promise is to always provide our community's pets with the most compassionate and experienced care.  As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited practice, we join the top 10-15% of veterinary practices in the United States and Canada that go above and beyond what is required by the state to ensure our facility and protocols lead to the highest quality veterinary care available. Our well-trained staff is committed to continue learning the latest updated veterinary standards of care and to utilize the latest medical equipment available to us. Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital and Pet Resort.

We are AAHA Accredited!   Ahwatukee Animal Care hospital is AAHA certified.

Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital's clients can take pride in knowing that they are taking their pet to an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited hospital.  Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are accredited.   We are the only AAHA certified hospital in Ahwatukee.  In fact, only about 3,500 (10 -15 %) of the animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited.  

What does accreditation mean?  It means our hospital holds itself to a higher standard, and that your pet is receiving care at a hospital that has passed an evaluation of over 900 rigorous standards of excellence in veterinary care covering nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, pet health records, cleanliness, emergency services, medical, dental, and nursing care, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology.  

AAHA's regular evaluations ensure that our hospital meets or exceeds the association's standards for facilities, equipment, and quality procedures.   The AAHA standards are recognized around the world as a benchmark for quality veterinary care. Accreditation helps our hospital stay on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and ensures we provide the quality and range of services your pet deserves.

Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pet. For this reason we challenge ourselves to pass the rigorous AAHA standards evaluations in order to ensure that we are meeting our mission, vision, and values.
