The CVO’s Podcast

Value of Veterinary Facility Accreditation

November 2, 2017

Associate Registrar, Quality Practice, Dr. Kim Lambert, and Principal, Accreditation Aneeta Bharij discuss the facility accreditation process and the new proposed model for accreditation. Veterinarians in Ontario must practise from an accredited veterinary facility which ensures all veterinary facilities provide a professional environment and contain the essential equipment required for patient care. Veterinary facilities are inspected for specific equipment requirements; proper patient records; safe drug storage; a medical reference library; and orderly and sanitary premises.
