We Are an AAHA Accredited Hospital

American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) has developed a set of accreditation standards that are widely used as benchmarks to measure excellence in veterinary medicine. Approximately 15% of veterinary practices in North America hold the "AAHA-accredited" designation. Accreditation through AAHA helps veterinary practices operate at a high level and enhances their ability to provide excellent patient care.

AAHA developed the accreditation program to raise the level of care being provided to companion animals, to increase loyalty among veterinary staff members, and to provide a way for animal hospitals to show their excellence to their communities and clients.
