What is AAHA?

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices and hospitals in the U.S. and Canada.

 What does being AAHA accredited mean?

AAHA accreditation signifies that your veterinary practice has met or exceeded stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine, from pain management to medical record-keeping, and has committed to a path of continuous improvement. Only 12% to 15% out of all the animal hospitals in the USA and Canada are accredited. Obtaining accreditation is completely voluntary.
