In 1978 New Hope Animal Hospital was certified by the American Animal Hospital Association. The American Animal Hospital Association is the only organization to accredit companion veterinary hospitals. Accredited hospitals hold themselves to a higher standard. Pets are their passion, and keeping them healthy is their #1 priority. They strive to deliver excellent care for pets- because they deserve nothing less.

Dr Herman’s interests include general medicine as well as the technology of veterinary care. New Hope Animal Hospital adopted electronic medical records, digital radiography and in house laboratory testing long before many hospitals. These changes were visionary and were adopted long before what is considered the norm today.
