The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits small animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals are evaluated regularly on approximately 900 quality of care standards.

To find information about animal health you can feel confident going to AAHA HealthyPet as a credible resource from a trusted veterinary association.

The clinic has been recognized as an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) since 1986.  

 Why Accreditation Matters to You:

Sure, this is a huge accomplishment for your veterinary team. But it also matters to you and your pet. Did you know that AAHA-accredited hospitals must have:

  • Assessed your pet for pain every time it is seen
  • Properly cleaned and sterilized instrument packs for surgery
  • Trained staff in animal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Emergency drugs and equipment readily available

These are just a few of the requirements to be accredited by AAHA. The standards were created by veterinary professionals in the field. Your veterinarian could have been one of them. They were created to improve the care received by your pet and by all pets. There is even a section on housekeeping that includes recommendations for cleanliness and eliminating strong odors. There are many more sections, all designed to benefit you and your pet.
