What it means to you
and your pet
A professional veterinary association
formed in 1933 to regulate
and promote high quality standards
for small animal practices.
Serves about 6,000 hospital members in the U.S. and Canada
3,000 hospitals are AAHA-accredited - that’s only 15% of all veterinary practices in the U.S. and Canada
Produces publications, videos, client information and other services
Enhance the abilities of veterinarians to provide quality medical care to companion animals
Enable veterinarians to successfully conduct their practices and maintain their facilities with high standards of excellence
Meet the public's needs as they relate to the delivery of small animal veterinary medicine
Veterinary practices that accept the challenge of accreditation are evaluated on stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of pet care – ranging from patient care and pain management, to team training and medical record keeping.
AAHA standards are continuously updated to keep accredited practices on the forefront of veterinary medicine.
You can trust an AAHA-accredited practice team to provide the very best care for your pet!
Preparing for the evaluation is a team-building experience and increases morale
On the day of the evaluation, an AAHA consultant visits and spends 1-2 days in the hospital evaluating the practice on over 900 standards.
To maintain their accreditation, a practice must be re-evaluated every 3 years.
By choosing an AAHA-accredited practice, you can be confident your pet is receiving the highest
quality care available.
