AAH has been serving clients and their beloved pets for over 40 years.

In a world where trust is in short supply, our clients can and do trust us with their companions.
Our doctors collaborate daily about all aspects of patient treatment and testing, including radiograph review, interpretation of blood work and other testing, advising when to refer, utilizing newer therapies, surgical approaches to unusual procedures, in-house cytologies, urinalyses, fecals, and dermatologic cases. We also benefit from weekly in-house consultations from a mobile internist and a cardiologist.
We provide competitive pay and remarkable benefits including fully paid health insurance with matching HSA contributions, and a 401(k) plan with employer contributions (regardless of employee participation), and the ability to maximize your retirement savings up to the federal limit. Also included are disability, life, and liability insurance, vacation, sick and personal time, dues and license fees, CE and pet care allowances. In recognition of the challenges of veterinary practice, AAH has always supported our staff’s healthcare and long-term planning for retirement.

Amherst Animal Hospital provides modern medical care while upholding traditional values. We are independently owned and the decisions regarding the practice, medications, equipment and protocols are thoroughly assessed before implementation. Our doctors and staff play an important role in the decision-making process. Our facility is free standing and has 5 examination rooms, 2 surgical suites, diagnostic ultrasound, DR digital radiography and in-house blood analyzers. We have 10 separate hospital wards allowing isolation for all potentially infectious patients. A full-time ward staff cares for hospitalized patients and there is a treatment technician living in an apartment above the hospital. We do offer boarding for pets needing extra care, including diabetics, those with renal failure and e...lderly animals.
All of our doctors perform surgery and see outpatient appointments. We have a knowledgeable and energetic staff of certified veterinary technicians, assistants and receptionists. We regularly provide externships for veterinary students and veterinary technician students and we employ several high school students wishing to gain experience in the veterinary field.
