AAHA Practice Team Membership

Do you have what it takes to be a champion?

AAHA-accredited hospitals are Champions for Excellent Care. They hold themselves to a higher standard. Pets are their passion, and keeping them healthy is their #1 priority. They strive to deliver excellent care for pets—because pets deserve nothing less.

Traditional accreditation

  • Nonspecialty accreditation for full-service veterinary care facilities
  • Evaluated on approximately 900 standards that cover all aspects of veterinary medicine
  • Medical director is not required to be board certified (though s/he may be)

Referral accreditation

  • Individual accreditation for AVMA-recognized veterinary specialties
  • Evaluated on standards that apply only to the specialties the practice wishes to accredit
  • Medical director(s) must be board certified in each specialty the practice wishes to accredit

Individual memberships

If your practice is not in the position to become accredited, or you are not currently with a practice, individual membership is another great option for you.
