AAHA Accredited

 What Are AAHA Standards?

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. AAHA wanted to ensure they reflect the developments made over the past 10 years in veterinary medicine in addition to AAHA’s team philosophy. AAHA recognizes that practice team members make significant contributions to the delivery of quality care and the overall success of every veterinary practice.
