As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited facility, Charlotte Street Animal Hospital regularly undergoes evaluations to ensure that we meet or exceed AAHA's standards of care.

These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, exam facilities, patient care, cleanliness, client service, emergency services, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. Only 15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited by AAHA, which is recognized worldwide as the benchmark for quality care in veterinary medicine. Charlotte Street Animal Hospital is proud to be 1 of only 4 AAHA-accredited general practice veterinary hospitals in Asheville.

“I just wanted to send a heartfelt “Thank you” to everyone who took such extraordinary care of Ms. Lacy on Tuesday. Dr. Knepshield was so kind, reassuring and professional. Leah was thorough and patient as she explained the procedure and recovery in detail. And Jen Riddle is a true calming force. Jen Buckner and the front staff were efficient and friendly as always. Lacy is recovering nicely, and true to form, she is milking it for all it is worth.”
