The Benefits of Choosing an AAHA Vet

vet practices that receive accreditation follow the extensive standards the AAHA has set as guidelines for vets

You want to receive the best assistance and veterinary services for your pets. Taking them to a veterinarian you trust and feel safe with makes all the difference.

If you’re looking for a new vet clinic, choose one with an accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

What Is the AAHA?

The AAHA is an accrediting organization for animal hospitals in the United States and Canada. Vet practices that receive accreditation follow the extensive standards the AAHA has set as guidelines for vets that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine.

The AAHA was founded in 1933 and has kept its strong dedication to professional development, high hospital standards, excellent educational programs and outstanding publications. The organization evaluates over 800 standards to ensure animal hospitals offer quality services.


Why Choose an AAHA-Accredited Vet?

When you go to a vet with an AAHA accreditation, you know the vets you see strive to promote healthier pets and provide the best care. Here are a few reasons why you should look for an AAHA-accredited animal hospital:

  • The gold standard for vets: The AAHA accreditation is the highest one any vet can receive in the United States and Canada. With the prestigious nature of the accreditations, only 12-15% of vets in North America are AAHA-accredited.
  • Advanced protocols: Vets with AAHA-accredited have significantly high standards, so you know they have incredibly sterile and clean environments. They also provide the best care with carefully detailed wellness plans, pain management, safety and patient handling and care.
  • Regular reviews: All AAHA-accredited facilities have regular evaluations to ensure they keep following the organization’s standards. Vets and staff must also participate in continuing education to stay informed on new information and best practices.
