What AAHA Accreditation Means to You

Our AAHA accreditation means you can feel confident that we have achieved challenging benchmarks in every aspect of our practice—and have done so since our first accreditation in 1996.

  • Our hospital is evaluated on more than 800 standards—the most rigorous in the industry—directly correlating to the care we provide your pet.
  • We must open our doors willingly and without reservations to an AAHA consultant for an inspection that lasts all day and is repeated with added sets of standards every three years.
  • We meet or exceed standards that are widely used as benchmarks of excellence in veterinary medicine and are periodically updated to reflect clinical advances.

In short, AAHA accreditation sets an animal hospital apart from others. Many animal hospitals are members of AAHA and can utilize some of their resources. But only a very few – approximately 14% of American hospitals – are actually accredited. We are proud of our AAHA accreditation.

 Our entire team believes in positive veterinary visits because... well, we love our patients! We want them to be just as happy to see us as we are to see them. 

As many pet parents have realized through experience, veterinary visits can be extremely scary for our beloved pets. Fear, Stress and Anxiety can not only weaken the immune system, it can also give off false test results and make treatment much more difficult. For this reason, we are proud to announce that our entire team has become Fear Free Certified. 

The team has gone under rigorous modules, and training to learn how we can relieve stress, fear and anxiety for all our patients. With the help of pheromones, iCalm music, sedatives and fear free handling techniques, we are able to treat our patients with decreased stress. If you know your pet is extra stressed during visits, give us a call on how we can ease some of that stress prior to even walking in to the building. Watch the video below for more information!
