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.
