Horizon Veterinary Clinic is proud to meet the rigorous veterinary service and care requirements necessary to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Here, our Brighton vets explain more what it means to be an AAHA certified animal hospital.
What is AAHA Accreditation?
AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada.
To become accredited by the AAHA, an animal hospital is evaluated on a range of stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine—from pain management and patient care to team training and medical record keeping.
AAHA accreditation is continuously updated and reevaluated to keep accredited hospitals at the forefront of the profession.
Developed by experts in the veterinary field, AAHA provides cutting-edge, frequently updated guidelines that help veterinary professionals face the demands of a continually shifting industry and provide pets with the best possible quality of care.
Recommendations on the appropriate healthcare for cats and dogs are ever-evolving, and AAHA guidelines assist veterinary professionals with developing evidence-based protocols for cats and dogs in their practices.
The AAHA aims to provide the most current, non-biased guidelines on clinically relevant topics to the benefit of not only AAHA members and their patients and clients, but of the entire veterinary profession.
