AAHA Importance to You and Your Pet
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.
AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the United States and Canada. Approximately 3,000 AAHA-accredited hospitals voluntarily choose to be evaluated on 900 standards in the following areas: quality of care, diagnostic testing, pharmacy, management, medical records, and the facility itself. Consultants regularly visit these hospitals to ensure compliance with AAHA's Standards of Accreditation for services and facilities.
Why does this matter to you? Here are a few examples of how AAHA's standards impact you and your pet when you visit an accredited facility like ours:
