Welcome to Cornell's Small Animal Community Practice

AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada. Practices that accept the challenge of accreditation are evaluated on stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine—from pain management and patient care to team training and medical recordkeeping—and are continuously updated to keep accredited practice teams at the forefront of the profession.

Today, only 12–15% of veterinary practices in the U.S. and Canada hold the “AAHA-accredited” designation. We are proud to be one of them. 

We offer three main types of medical care to our patients.

Health maintenance

We provide annual or biannual examinations, parasite prevention, vaccinations and routine laboratory testing including fecal parasite exams, heartworm testing, tick-born disease testing, viral testing in cats and other blood work depending on the animal's age and health status.

Primary care

We are the primary caregivers for sick and injured dogs and cats on our service. We routinely screen animals, provide treatment and develop plans for future care. We refer seriously ill animals to the appropriate specialty service for advanced treatment, and coordinate their cases. We also collaborate with the dental service to identify animals that are in need of routine dental cleanings. 

The medical conditions we most commonly treat include:

  • Lyme disease
  • Parasitic disease
  • Dental disease
  • Skin disease

Elective surgery

We provide elective, outpatient surgical services to patients including spay and neuter surgery, removing minor lumps and bumps, and suturing minor wounds.
