Welcome to Palouse Animal Wellness & Surgery Center

We are dedicated to providing the highest, most up-to-date care for your pet to ensure they are a member of your family for many years to come! 

AAHA-accredited logo

Palouse Animal Wellness & Surgery Center has achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). PAWS earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.

Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are continuously reviewed and updated to keep accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.

***We are proud to announce that we have completed the 2016 AAHA Evaluation and have once again earned AAHA Accredidation! Evaluations are performed every three years according to AAHA regulations. We are very proud to be one of  only fourteen AAHA-accredited clinics in Idaho!***
