AAHA Importance to You & Your Pet
Why Our Countryside Veterinarians Stand Out
Not all veterinary hospitals are created equal and just because a clinic offers care for your pets does not make them accredited as a cutting-edge care center. In fact, according to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe the veterinary hospital they visit is an accredited institution when it is not. The AAHA accredits more than 36,000 veterinary care providers with established practices and standards to ensure that all pets are treated properly. It was established in 1933 and is known for its high standards for veterinary practices. Countryside Veterinary Hospital is proud to be one of those accredited animal hospitals.
Why Accreditation Matters
As an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, Countryside Veterinary Hospital offers up-to-date, advanced treatments for our patients. You can count on our team to provide you with the information you need and the treatments your pet needs. Our compliance with AAHA standards demonstrates our commitment to high quality veterinary care.
These standards help to ensure that:
- All diagnostic services and equipment such as X-rays and laboratory tools are in proper working order and can accurately diagnose your pet as quickly as possible.
- Our protocols for quality of care services are up to date, including anesthetics, dentistry, emergency care, surgery, treatment for contagious diseases, pain management, and more.
- We have an onsite pharmacy in order to provide your pet with the medicines they need right away.
- All medical records will be thorough and complete in order to make sure our team has all the information we need to properly diagnose and treat your pet’s condition.
The AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. To meet their Standards of Accreditation, Countryside Veterinary Hospital had to rigorously undergo training and invest in clinical technology to provide the highest quality care to our patients.
Our commitment to cutting-edge care for your loved ones helps us accomplish our mission to treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
