Desert Veterinary Clinic Inc., P.S. strives to fulfill the needs of our patients and clients by providing quality and compassionate animal health care with a responsive professional staff that emphasizes individual attention and a commitment to excellence and community service. Desert Veterinary Clinic is recognized in the professional community as an innovative leader in veterinary medicine and surgery. We have been selected by the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine as a Guided Preceptorship Practice, which bestows status as an adjunct teaching facility. Veterinary students are assigned to our practice for part of their fourth year of study to gain experience in clinical veterinary medicine and business management. Veterinary technician students from Yakima Valley Community College may also spend a month with us during their final year of study to gain practical experience. We meet rigid standards in medicine, surgery, record keeping, and facilities and have received four-year accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association for our efforts. This is the highest possible level awarded and is based on inspection and review of a clinic's medical and surgical equipment, practice methods and business management. We are also proud that we have been chosen to provide veterinary health care for the Hanford Patrol K-9 Division.
