Be a Champion

AAHA-accredited hospitals are Champions for Excellent Care

They hold themselves to a higher standard. Pets are their passion, and keeping them healthy is their #1 priority. They strive to deliver excellent care for pets—because pets deserve nothing less.

AAHA Standards of Accreditation

AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada. Practices that accept the challenge of accreditation are evaluated on stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine—from pain management and patient care to team training and medical recordkeeping—and are continuously updated to keep accredited practice teams at the forefront of the profession.

Today, approximately 12–15% of veterinary practices in the U.S. and Canada hold the “AAHA-accredited” designation.

If you are an AAHA member, please Log In with your AAHA credentials to view the standards.
