What we do

The American Animal Hospital Association accredits companion animal hospitals.

Does your veterinary hospital have this logo proudly displayed on its walls? If so, you should take pride in knowing that you take your pet to an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital!

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). What does accreditation mean? It means your hospital holds itself to a higher standard, and that your pet is receiving care at a hospital that has passed the highest standards in veterinary care.

Not sure if your veterinary hospital is accredited? Ask them!
