You may have heard that we are proud at Town & Country Animal Hospital to be AAHA accredited. Even though that may sound impressive, many people don’t know what that means. Read on to learn about AAHA accreditation and what it means for you and your four-legged family member.
AAHA stands for the American Animal Hospital Association, a group established in 1933 that has dedicated itself to ensuring the highest quality of care for pets.
AAHA accredits veterinary hospitals according to its over 900 standards. Hospitals are only accredited when they can demonstrate compliance and are subject to periodic onsite inspections completed every three years. Only about 15 percent of small animal hospitals across the United States and Canada can say that they comply!
Life plays tricks on us sometimes, and time is never more elusive than when the previous year’s calendar is replaced by the new one. This moment commands quiet reflection on the past, and creates an opportunity to look toward the future with a hopeful optimism. This is true in all areas of life, but for us we enjoy looking back at our pet care blogs posted every month for the pleasure and interest of our growing community of pet owners. From parasite prevention to overall wellness, safety measures to articles focused on a specific species, we hope it’s clear that we care about your pet.
