What does this signify and who is AAHA?
In the United States and Canada, veterinary clinics are accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Even though their veterinary hospital is not accredited, nearly 60% of pet owners think it is. In actuality, the AAHA only confers accreditation on 12–15% of veterinary facilities in the US and Canada.
What does this imply for my pet and I?
It indicates that our hospital upholds higher standards and that your pet is receiving treatment at a facility that has attained the highest veterinary care standards. Every three years, the AAHA sends consultants to assess our compliance with the AAHA Standards of Accreditation, which cover around 900 different veterinary care requirements.
