Mayfair Animal Hospital is proud to be one of only two veterinary practices in Cary that are members of the American Animal Hospital Association. We gained accreditation following a lengthy application process, including an on-site inspection to determine that we were in compliance with the standards and policies established by the Association. In order to maintain accreditation, we undergo periodic review including additional on-site evaluations.

Patient care Medical records
