Elevate Your Specialty Practice with AAHA Accreditation

Do you want to showcase your commitment to exceptional care and seamless communication? AAHA specialty/referral practice accreditation is your answer. Recognized by veterinarians and pet owners alike, it demonstrates your dedication to the highest standards in your field.


  • Have a board-certified specialist on staff in each accredited specialty (working at least 75% of the time).
  • If an emergency care practice doesn’t have a criticalist, that practice can pursue traditional accreditation rather than specialty/referral.
  • Practice AVMA-recognized specialties, including Anesthesiology, Avian, Behavior, Dentistry, Dermatology, Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Radiology, Surgery, and more.
