What is AAHA?
AHHA stands for the American Animal Hospital Association, a professional association of veterinary hospitals. Accreditation is voluntary and we have chosen to be accredited because of our commitment to excellence in small animal care.
What are the requirements we need for accreditation?
To become accredited, we must comply with the AAHA standards of accreditation. The standards cover almost every aspect of running a veterinary practice, from providing high quality care for patients, to providing excellent clients service.
The evaluation covers 19 areas. During this evaluation, we are asked to meet 46 mandatory standards and to address about 900 other standards of care. It's an opportunity for us to get feedback on what we are doing well and identify areas where we may want to make changes and improvements. Practices are evaluated every four years on site.
How does AAHA benefit you, the client, and your pets?
The AAHA standards were developed with high quality care in mind. By following the standards we are better able to provide patients with the very best care in veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are a mark of distinction that sets us apart from others. It means we've worked hard to create, implement and update our protocols and to periodically review the things we are doing to assure we are up-to-date and being the best we can be.
