Accreditations & Memberships
We voluntarily sought accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association. This means we regularly have our practice evaluated by an expert to ensure that we comply with the highest standards in veterinary care. And it means that you can be sure your pet is receiving the best possible care. Ask us about our AAHA accreditation and how it affects your pet.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is an international association of more than 32,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. Established in 1933, AAHA is well known among veterinarians and pet owners for its standards for hospitals and pet health care. Over 3,000 veterinary hospitals participate in the AAHA hospital evaluation programs. Trained consultants visit these hospitals regulary to ensure compliance with AAHA’s standards for service and facilities. Individual veterinarians can also be members of AAHA.
Our hospital was asked to meet over 900 standards of care in order to achieve our certification.
We are evaluated in these areas: Anesthesia, Client Service, Contagious Disease, Continuing Education, Dentistry, Diagnostic Imaging, Emergency/Urgent Care, Examination Facilites, Housekeeping and Maintenance, Human Resources, Laboratory, Leadership, Medical Records, Pain Management, Patient Care, Pharmacy, Safety, and Surgery. AAHA reminds pet owners that they can help pets live healthier and longer lives by taking their pets to the veterinarian for annual physical exams, vaccinations, and dental care as well as providing pets with fresh water, a balanced diet, and exercise.
