Accreditation for Animal Hospitals
Not All Hospitals are Accredited
We love our pets. They improve our quality of life - they make us happy when we are sad. They are always there for us and provide us with a companionship that can only be provided by our pet. Providing them with the best care is what accreditation is all about. The accrediting organization for veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada is the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). You may be surprised to learn that not all animal hospitals are accredited - in fact, only ten Salt Lake City veterinary hospitals have achieved this status. To be accredited, hospitals must pass rigorous inspections of medical practices and business practices as well as intensive on-site inspections from AAHA. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) holds hospitals accountable to following best medical practices by measuring the hospital's performance against over 900 tough standards.
