WHAT DOES AAHA STAND FOR?
AAHA stands for American Animal Hospital Association. It is the only organization that accredits veterinary hospitals. To become accredited, companion animal hospitals undergo regular comprehensive evaluations by AAHA veterinary experts who evaluate the practice on approximately 900 standards of veterinary care that go above and beyond basic state regulations. They are considered the highest standard of care. Today, only 12-15% of veterinary practices in the United States and Canada are accredited.
To maintain accredited status, hospitals undergo comprehensive on-site evaluations every three years, which ensures that hospitals are compliant with the Association’s mandatory standards.
WHY BECOME ACCREDITED?
The mission for every AAHA accredited hospital is to enhance the abilities of veterinarians to provide quality medical care to companion animals and to enable veterinarians to successfully conduct their practices and maintain their facilities with high standards of excellence.
In January 2017 Loyal Companions became a AAHA accredited veterinary practice.
