AAHA Accredited Veterinarian near me
Most people are aware that not all animal hospitals are alike. However, you may not know medical standards can vary widely from hospital to hospital. In order to ensure your pet is receiving the highest level of care, you should select a veterinary hospital that has received the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Accreditation. Only 12-15% of all veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada are AAHA accredited. We are proud to say, since 1999, Longwood Veterinary Center is one such hospital.
AAHA hospitals must meet or exceed certain standards for pain management, surgery, anesthesia, diagnostic imaging, and more. These standards are continuously reviewed and updated as recommendations for veterinary care grows and evolves. This process is challenging and voluntary. When a veterinary hospital makes the commitment to become and maintain AAHA accreditation, they are stating they are dedicated to excellence.
