Why We're AAHA Accredited
What Is AAHA?
AAHA is the acronym for the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), which is a veterinary organization that was established in 1933 by a team of veterinary leaders. This team wanted to make a positive difference in pet hospitals by helping veterinary professionals deliver only the best possible veterinary care. To do that, they created a list of over 900 stringent standards related to pet care and client services and awarded accreditation to any practice that met those standards. These standards include facility cleanliness, technology and equipment, and client service.
The mission of AAHA involves three primary factors:
- Enhancing the abilities of veterinarians to provide quality medical care to companion animals
- Empowering veterinarians to successfully conduct their practices and maintain their facilities with high standards of excellence
- Helping veterinary practices meet the public's needs with regards to providing small animal wellness services
