What Is AAHA?
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is a veterinary organization that was established more than 80 years ago by veterinary leaders who wanted to help other veterinary professionals provide the best possible care to their patients. To accomplish this goal, these leaders developed a list of over 900 high standards—referred to as benchmarks of excellence—related to pet care and customer service. Any veterinary practice in the U.S. or Canada can choose to be evaluated by AAHA on these standards to earn the honor of being an accredited pet hospital.
Why We Are AAHA-Accredited
For over 25 years, AnimERge Animal Hospital has been dedicated to providing the finest emergency and specialty veterinary services to pets, with an emphasis on compassion and professionalism. This commitment to excellence is what led us to pursue recognition by AAHA, the only accrediting body for companion animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2012, we earned our accreditation and have been maintaining AAHA’s high standards of excellence in veterinary medicine ever since. Currently, approximately 15% of veterinary hospitals are accredited with AAHA, and AnimERge is honored to be one of them.
