What does it mean to be AAHA Accredited?
AAHA accreditation is only achieved by 16% of veterinary clinics nationwide. It is a voluntary inspection, consultation and standardization process that no other profession (medical, dental, chiropractic, etc) has.
Successful accreditation requires passing over 1000 individual standards ranging from how we store and regulate our medications to how we administer anesthesia and keep our hospital sanitary.
These standards are there for one reason…to elevate the quality of pet care we deliver. Our clinic has had AAHA accreditation since 1995 and is one of just 12 clinics in Madison (including the UW Veterinary School) to achieve accredited status.
The re-accreditation process takes place every three years and we just completed the second one in our new facility on October 25th, 2017 passing with flying colors. Standards are upgraded every year to raise the bar for the delivery of excellent pet care.
