The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is an international association of more than 36,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. Established in 1933, AAHA is well-known among veterinarians and pet owners for its high standards in veterinary practices and quality pet care.
Since 1987, we have been evaluated based on AAHA's Standards of Accreditation - an extensive list of more than 900 standards that directly correlate to the care we are providing your pet - to ensure that we comply with the association's high quality standards of care. These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental and nursing care, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. The AAHA Standards of Accreditation, developed and published by AAHA, are widely accepted as representing those components of veterinary practice that represent high-quality care. The Standards are periodically reviewed and updated to ensure that they remain consistent with evolving knowledge and technology. Less than 15% of pet hospitals in North America meet these stringent requirements. Accreditation helps our veterinary hospital stay on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and provide the quality and range of services you and your pet deserve.
