End-of-Life Care Accreditation

COMING SOON: End-of-Life Care Accreditation from AAHA

Today’s pet owners increasingly view their pets as part of the family. And, 40% of surveyed owners said they would likely not return to a veterinarian if they had an unsatisfactory euthanasia experience with them.

That’s why AAHA is developing a new accreditation model called End-of-Life Care accreditation. Launching in early 2020, this new model is designed to help veterinary practices ensure proper medical care and appropriate supportive and emotional care, while also helping those practices enhance and strengthen the human-animal bond.

Standalone practices—brick-and-mortar or mobile—whose practice is limited to end-of-life care, or currently AAHA-accredited practices that want to add a brick-and-mortar or mobile end-of-life care practice, will be eligible for AAHA’s End-of-Life Care accreditation.

More information will be available soon; keep an eye on your inbox for updates in early 2020.
