Welcome to Bit & Spur Animal Hospital
Founded in 1992 by John C. Courtney, D.V.M., we moved to our current location on December 22, 2008. Our facility offers the latest in veterinary design, including separate surgical, dental and x-ray suites, intensive care monitoring, digital radiography and 24 hour nursing care. Grooming and boarding are part of the main building but have separate air conditioning and ventilation systems. The design of the office was done to allow for visibility throughout the hospital, avoiding confinement, as well as aiding in patient comfort. Our facility is fully computerized, and we have been a member of AAHA since October 1999. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is an international association of more than 27,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. Established in 1933, AAHA is well known among veterinarians and pet owners for its standards for hospitals and pet health care. Over 3,000 veterinary hospitals voluntarily participate in the AAHA hospital evaluation program. Trained consultants regularly visit these hospitals to ensure compliance with AAHA’s standards for services and facilities. Individual veterinarians can also be members of AAHA. AAHA reminds pet owners that they can help dogs and cats live healthier and longer lives by taking their pets to the veterinarian for annual physical exams, vaccinations, and dental care as well as providing pets with fresh water, a balanced diet, and exercise.
