El Dorado Animal Hospital is an AAHA accredited hospital. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality pet care in veterinary hospitals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the association's high standards in 18 different areas, including patient care, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, pet health records, cleanliness, emergency vet services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education. Achieving this accreditation showcases how highly we have set our standards at El Dorado Animal Hospital since day one, and our commitment to always provide the highest standard of veterinary care for your pets.
The Cat Friendly Practice (CFP) program was created to improve the treatment, handling and overall healthcare of cats. Its purpose is to equip veterinary practices with the tools, resources and information to elevate the standard of care for cats. Members of the CFP program make every effort to provide a comforting environment for their feline patients. Read more about the steps we take to make it a welcoming experience for your cat.
You know what we are talking about. A challenging day can be made bearable and a great day can be made even more beautiful when you experience that unconditional love and affection that comes from an animal. That kind of bond goes both ways. It is your responsibility to make sure your pet has everything he or she needs – and that includes nurturing, attentive vet care at one of the NorthEast Valley’s finest local vet clinics. Dr. Sarah Bashaw, one of the most compassionate and dedicated vets in the local area, has established El Dorado Animal Hospital to provide top quality veterinary care for you and your family. The warm and professional staff members are committed to Dr. Bashaw's veterinary vision and the El Dorado Animal Hospital philosophy of personalized animal care in a comfortable setting at outstanding value.
The new facility includes all the latest in veterinary care technology and equipment. Our full array of local services includes wellness care, routine and advanced dental care, ophthalmology, surgery, radiology, ultrasound, in-house lab, nutritional consultation, emergency services and more. Although most all of the services your pet needs are located in-house, we have excellent resources in the veterinary communities nearby. We offer referrals to Phoenix, Scottsdale and other Arizona veterinarian offices when necessary.
Visiting the vet can be scary sometimes, for both you and your pet. Here at El Dorado Animal Hospital we strive to put you all at ease, whether it is during a complicated time of crisis or a simple, routine check-up. Cutting edge veterinary technology and the well-trained, caring staff assure that you and your pet will be as comfortable as possible. (We even have a separate area for our cat patients who might have experienced some anxiety in a multi-species waiting room!)
