Veterinary hospitals are evaluated on about 900 different standards of veterinary excellence and they must meet all of these standards in order to become accredited. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of cutting-edge advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards address patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education.
