What Is AAHA?
AAHA stands for the American Animal Hospital Association, and accreditation from AAHA indicates that a hospital and the staff and doctors that work there are dedicated to meeting the highest standards of care for your pets. AAHA constantly updates the standards that must be met for accreditation, assuring both you and us that we are practicing the best medicine available. They look at everything from diagnostic abilities such as radiology (X-rays) and ultrasound to surgical capabilities and monitoring.
