What is an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital?

What is an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital?

Pacific & Santa Cruz Veterinary Specialists is proud to meet the rigorous veterinary service and care requirements necessary to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

What is AAHA Accreditation?

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

An animal hospital is evaluated by the AAHA on a variety of stringent quality standards that cover all aspects of veterinary medicine, from pain management and patient care to team training and medical record keeping.

To keep accredited hospitals at the forefront of their profession, AAHA accreditation is constantly updated and reevaluated.

AAHA Guidelines

Developed by veterinary experts, AAHA provides cutting-edge, frequently updated guidelines that assist veterinary professionals in meeting the demands of a constantly changing industry and providing the best possible quality of care to pets.

Recommendations for appropriate cat and dog healthcare are constantly changing, and AAHA guidelines assist veterinary professionals in developing evidence-based protocols for cats and dogs in their practices.

The AAHA's mission is to provide the most up-to-date, unbiased guidelines on clinically relevant topics for the benefit of not only AAHA members and their patients and clients, but also of the entire veterinary profession.
