Why find an AAHA-ACCREDITED HOSPITAL?
When I was a veterinary practice manager, I was in charge of coordinating the efforts of our hospital to become AAHA-Accredited. With over 900 standards, practices that voluntarily seek accreditation hold themselves to a higher standard. I personally still use an accredited hospital and would recommend nothing less to you and your pet.

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, only 12%–15% of veterinary practices in the US and Canada hold the “AAHA-accredited” designation.
