AAHA-accredited veterinary care in Pocatello, ID.
Did you know that accreditation for animal hospitals is voluntary? When it comes to veterinary hospitals, nearly 60% of pet owners assume theirs is accredited when it is not. In reality, only 12-15% of animal hospitals have completed the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) certification process. We take pride in being an AAHA-accredited hospital.
American Animal Hospital Association
Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain their accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. State and provincial regulations can vary widely—in fact, some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals, only going in for an inspection when a complaint is filed by a pet owner. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence and does not vary between states or provinces (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).
We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. That means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion, and keeping them healthy is our number one priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets because your pets deserve nothing less. Learn more about AAHA accreditation and why our accreditation is important to you and your pet here.
