Accreditation by AAHA means that we have passed a voluntary evaluation of more than 900 standards and that we are dedicated to upholding the highest standards of care for your pet!    The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), along with a group of veterinary experts, developed the AAHA Standards of Accreditation as benchmarks of excellence. The AAHA Accreditation Program helps veterinary hospitals incorporate these standards of quality care and procedures into their day-to-day practices, ultimately raising the level of care being provided to companion animals while also increasing loyalty among veterinary staff members. Being AAHA-accredited also provides a way for veterinary hospitals to show their commitment to excellence in their communities and to their clients.

We are members of the BBB, North Royalton Chamber of Commerce, Ohio Veterinary Medical Association and Cleveland Academy of Veterinary Medicine.

In addition, we were honored to be a recipient of the 2013 Angie's Lists Super Service Award.

I recently saw this review on line and felt compelled to share my own thoughts because yours differ from mine. I love North Royalton Animal Hospital and these are the reasons why. We have been taking our animals to North Royalton Animal Hospital for several years. When Dr. Hechko took over it was truly a blessing. Through the years our precious animals went through a few illnesses plus surgeries that saved their l... view more

I needed a second opinion for my very sick cat. I chose North Royalton Animal Hospital because of its AAHA award. It was a mistake I now have to live with. My cat was suffering from a persistent sinus infection and complete loss of appetite. He is gone now, having been finally diagnosed with advanced cancer by another veterinarian. The treating vet at N. Royalton misdiagnosed him and suggested a very expensive x-ray ... view more

I boarded my maltese/bichon mix puppy, Balto, at NRAH this past weekend. I could not have been more thrilled with the entire experience! The staff was wonderful and the facility was spotless. They even played soothing music throughout :) I loved the pictures they gave me of Balto having bath and play time. A great experience through and through. And I don't have to say any of this!

Our two dogs have been seeing Dr Hechko since they were 6 weeks old and this month they will be 3 years old. My dogs and I walk in the woods almost everyday. Both dogs had lacerations of their paws at one time or another.( The dangers of running in the woods). Dr Roach saw Jade on an emergency basis and Jade had the best care possible. Ruby just cut her foot the other day and I took her in to The North Royalton Anima... view more

I have been taking my dog for several

I have been taking my dog for several years and now my puppy. My older dog has horrible skin allergies and is always at the doctor. Dr. Hechko and staff are always very loving to me and my animals when I have a concern. They get us in right away whenever I call and follow up consistently with phone calls home. I am there a lot and pay a lot and I appreciate the wonderful care and consideration they give me and my ani... view more

Thank you so much for all you did to

Thank you so much for all you did to help TJ! I have never met a veterinary staff with so much compassion and care for their patients and the family. The gift of TJ's paw print was so amazing! Because of that, I will always feel I have him with me. TJ loved all of you guys and he never showed fear to come to see you. That was very rare! Thank you for everything. We are truly grateful for all you did.

Dr. Adam Hechko is very dedicated to

Dr. Adam Hechko is very dedicated to animal healthcare and also to the pet owners. He has remodeled the whole animal hospital and it certainly feels like a warm environment where all are welcome. Furthermore, Dr. Hechko just threw the community a Pet Carnival that was a lot of fun for those pet lovers! I can not recommend this clinic enough!!!!!

Loved the individual attention

I have been bringing my pet to Dr, Hechko for about 3 years and wanted to share my latest experience at the ofice. While i was waiting for my cat to be seen someone came in carrying a big dog that appeared to be in severe distress. I was amazed at the way the receptionist and staff rushed them into the back for emergency care then appologized to me that it would me just a slightly longer wait for my appointment.
