About Our AAHA Accreditation

Our clinic became AAHA accredited in 1985, and we have maintained our accreditation status ever since. The American Animal Hospital Association distinguishes animal clinics that go above and beyond to meet over 900 standards of pet care and client care, and pass inspection every three years to ensure continued compliance.

Our doctors and team members are wholly dedicated to working together to practice veterinary medicine at the highest possible level, so you and your pet can benefit to the fullest extent.


What is the American Animal Hospital Association?

In 1933, a group of veterinarians created an organization that pushed animal clinics to achieve the highest possible standard of care. Underpinned by a belief in collaboration, integrity, and simplicity, AAHA became the one and only accrediting organization for veterinary practices in the US and Canada.

AAHA is stringent in its standards, with over 900 established to elevate the quality of pet care, client care, safety, and sanitation provided in animal clinics.

It is important to note that AAHA accreditation is a choice. Veterinarians and team members participate in the rigorous process of becoming accredited voluntarily, with the goal of giving their patients and clients the best care and experience.
