WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AAHA ACCREDITED?
It means that our hospital has voluntarily chosen to go through the rigorous process of becoming accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). We have pursued accreditation because we understand that your pet holds a valued place in your heart and his/her health is very important to us.
AAHA was founded in 1933 and is the only association in North America that provides accreditation to companion animal hospitals. To be accredited by AAHA, our hospital must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service, and be measured against the most rigorous standards in the veterinary industry. Only 12% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are AAHA accredited, and we are one of them.
During the accreditation process, we are evaluated based on AAHA’s Standards of Accreditation–an extensive list of more than 900 standards that directly correlate to the care that we provide to our patients and their owners.
