Home • What is AAHA?

How the standards help you and your pet.

Choosing an AAHA-accredited hospital for your pet's medical care assures you that the hospital you have selected has the staff, equipment, medical procedures, and facilities that AAHA believes are important for the delivery of high quality veterinary care.

We are committed to you and your pet.

We understand that your pet holds a valued place in your life and your heart so we have made it our goal to respect and honor that special bond by providing the best possible care for your pet. As part of that goal we have chosen to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and have our hospital measured against the most rigorous published standards in the industry.

Who is AAHA?

AAHA was founded in 1933 and is the only association that provides voluntary accredidation to companion animal hospitals. We are one of approximately 3,000 veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada that are AAHA-accredited and have made a commitment to meeting the highest standards of veterinary care.

What are the Standards of Accreditation?

The AAHA Standards of Accreditation are widely used benchmarks to measure excellence in veterinary medicine. Our hospital has been successfully evaluated by an outside consultant on over 800 standards that directly correlate to the care we are providing your pet. The standards are periodically reviewed and updated to ensure they remain consistent with changes in veterinary medicine and technology.

To maintain our accredited status and to make sure we are keeping up with indusry updates, we are evaluated every three years.

We set our standards high so that we can provide you and your pet(s) the highest quality of care and service. To be accredited by AAHA, our hospital must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service. AAHA's standards cover every aspect of our hospital to assure your satisfaction with the level of care both you and your pet receives.
