ASAVA Hospital Accreditation

What is ASAVA Accreditation?

All veterinary clinics and hospitals in South Australia must meet minimum standards set by the Veterinary Surgeons Board of South Australia.

However, we prefer to use the more stringent standards set by the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association (ASAVA).

The ASAVA Hospital Accreditation Scheme recognises dog and cat practices that achieve the highest levels of quality health care and practice management in innovative, state-of-the-art hospital facilities.  These standards are based upon what humans expect from their own doctors and medical facilities.

Both our Morphett Vale and Marion Hospitals are ASAVA Accredited Hospitals of Excellence.

The rigorous inspection process takes place every 3-4 years, and includes on-site visits of the hospital facilities by an independent panel, as well as review of hospital procedures, surgery protocols and record-keeping.
