We are also the only small animal hospital in Vancouver accredited by The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals voluntarily choose to be evaluated on over 900 standards in the following areas: quality of care, diagnostic & pharmacy, management, medical records and facility. Why does this matter to you? Here are a few examples of how AAHA’s standards inpact you and your pet.
- The standards require hospitals to provide diagnostice services (x-ray and laboratory) so that they can quickly and accurately diagnose your pet.
- The standards focus on the quality of care in the areas of: anaesthesia, contagious diseases, dentistry, pain management, patient care. surgery and emergency care.
- Accredited hospitals have an onsite pharmacy so they can begin treatment immediately.
- AAHA standards also require that medical records be thorough and complete which helps them to better understand your pet’s medical history and how past health issues might be impacting their current medical status.
Accreditation helps veterinary hospitals stay on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and provide the quality and range of services you and your pet deserve.
