  • AAHA Accreditation

    What is AAHA?                                                AAHA Accredited

    In the 1930s, a group of veterinarians created standards to help bring common guidelines, practices and procedures to the veterinary profession. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), along with a group of veterinary experts, developed the AAHA Standards of Accreditation as benchmarks of excellence. The AAHA Accreditation Program helps veterinary hospitals incorporate these standards of quality care and procedures into their day-to-day practices, ultimately raising the level of care being provided to companion animals while also increasing loyalty among veterinary staff members. Being AAHA-accredited also provides a way for veterinary hospitals to show their commitment to excellence in their communities and to their clients.

    What makes an AAHA practice different?

    Since 1933, AAHA's leaders and other veterinary experts have developed specific written standards for companion animal practices. These standards have undergone numerous changes, but none so significant as the 2005 enhancements. The enhanced standards were developed in order to raise the bar of veterinary excellence. We wanted to ensure they reflect the developments made over the past 10 years in veterinary medicine in addition to AAHA's team philosophy. We recognize that practice team members make significant contributions to the delivery of quality care and the overall success of every veterinary practice.

  • Fear Free Certified

    What is Fear Free?

    As veterinary professionals, we know that visits to our hospitals are declining—and we know that the stress and anxiety associated with taking a pet to the veterinarian is a significant reason why. Fear leads to trauma for our patients, and as a result, pet owners visit their veterinarian less often or not at all, instead opting to seek advice and products from other sources.

    Fortunately, there is a solution that can resolve this downward trend, restore trust in veterinarians as the true pet health experts, and most importantly, reduce feelings of stress, resulting in a better experience for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams: Fear Free veterinary visits.
