WE CHOOSE AAHA.
How do we stand out from the rest, when most veterinary hospital missions and visions are essentially the same? Routinely, hospitals strive for excellence in everything they do—exceptional client service and veterinary and ancillary care—maintaining this excellence through continuing education and keeping abreast of technological advances. It is not uncommon to see hospitals state they look to “set the standards in veterinary and pet care.”
What, then, is the difference between hospitals? What do these words really mean? Not only does the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) already clearly define what these 900 standards are in veterinary and pet care, but they also regulate and hold their accredited hospitals accountable to meet and exceed these standards.
The AAHA standards are the metric by which we constantly measure the worth of our hospital. We voluntarily choose to be AAHA-accredited because it is the model by which we want to be recognized, defining our brand and our character. We want your pet’s caregivers to be held to the highest possible standards in veterinary care. Pets do not choose their veterinary hospital—pet parents do. AAHA is their voice. Accreditation indicates that we are a serious, unwavering, and dedicated part of a team larger than ourselves: a team of 15% of veterinary hospitals throughout the United States and Canada that hope to someday raise the bar for all veterinary practices by making AAHA standards a state- and province-wide requirement. Our goal is for pet parents to demand nothing less from their pets’ healthcare providers, because we expect nothing less from ourselves and for our patients and their families. Accreditation is not about standing out; it is about standing up for the care and safety of pets and upholding our own moral and ethical character in our community.
