Eco Friendly Facility

WEHOAH_0115It is easy being green!

We are committed keeping our patients free from exposure to chemicals and toxic materials and doing our part to preserve the environment.

We feature the following eco-friendly designs:

Recycled rubber flooring
Our eco flooring is made from recycled rubber and is free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Also, it’s soft and easy on the joints with excellent traction so even the most arthritic pets can feel at ease.

Formaldehyde Free Cabinetry
Standard hospital cabinetry is constructed from boards of cancer causing formaldehyde. We took the extra steps necessary to make our cabinets completely organic and formaldehyde free, because your pet’s safety matters to us.

Natural Lighting
Our entire hospital was designed to let in natural sunlight through ample windows, skylights, glass doors, and clerestory windows. Research has shown that ICU patients who are exposed to natural light heal more quickly and have improved moods.

VOC Free Paints
Our wall paints are free of toxic Volatile Organic Compounds.

Filtered Water
All of our water (for drinking and bathing) is filtered, potable water free of bacteria, lead, and other harmful chemicals.

In House Recycling Program
We recycle over 18 gallons of plastic, cardboard, and paper per week!

Digital X-rays
Both our dental x-ray and full body x-ray systems are completely digital, eliminating the need to use hazardous chemicals used for film development.

Paper Free Medical Records
Our entire medical record system is computerized and paper free, saving 1000’s of trees. This system also allows our doctors and staff access to your pet’s records from any computer, meaning less wait time for you.
