What is an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital?

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets rigorous veterinary service and care requirements that accredited animal hospitals must meet. Pet Doctors of America is proud to meet these standards.

What is AAHA Accreditation?

The only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada is the AAHA.

To become accredited by this organization, an animal hospital is evaluated on a list of stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine, from pain management and patient care to medical recordkeeping and team training. 

AAHA accreditation is continuously updated and reevaluated to ensure accredited hospitals are at the forefront of the profession.

AAHA Guidelines

Established by experts in the veterinary field, AAHA provides cutting-edge, guidelines that are frequently updated to help veterinary professionals face the demands of an industry that continues to shift. These guidelines also help veterinarians provide pets with the highest possible quality of care. 

Recommendations on appropriate healthcare for cats and dogs are ever-evolving, and AAHA guidelines assist professionals in the veterinary field with developing evidence-based protocols for dogs and cats in their practices. 

The AAHA's goal is to provide the most current, non-biased guidelines on clinically relevant topics to the benefit of not just AAHA members and their clients and patients, but of the entire veterinary profession.
