Linden Heights Animal Hospital was opened in 1967 and received the Veterinary Economics Hospital of the Year Award as the best animal hospital built in the United States in 1967. The hospital was re-staffed in 1986 by Doctors Joseph and Peter Schmitt, brothers who had long desired to practice together providing the best and most current service veterinary medicine can offer.
The Linden Heights Animal Hospital is one of less than 18 percent of North American veterinary hospitals accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). AAHA accreditation means that we meet strict standards for excellence in our building, equipment, surgery, patient care, and sanitation. Regular AAHA inspection and evaluation assures you of the highest quality care each and every time you trust your pet to our team of professionals.
