What is an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital?

Highland Animal Hospital is proud to have met the American Animal Hospital Association's (AAHA) stringent veterinary service and care requirements (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 recordkeeping.

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

AAHA Guidelines

AAHA's cutting-edge, frequently updated guidelines assist veterinary professionals in meeting the demands of a constantly changing industry and providing pets with the highest possible quality of care.

Appropriate healthcare recommendations for cats and dogs are constantly evolving, and AAHA guidelines assist veterinarians in developing evidence-based protocols for cats and dogs in their practices.

The AAHA's mission is to provide the most current, objective guidelines on clinically significant topics to benefit not only AAHA members and their patients and clients, but also the entire veterinary profession.
