Orange Veterinary Hospital is proudly
AAHA Accredited

Did you know that animal hospitals can choose to be accredited? It’s unexpected, isn’t it? Even if their pet’s veterinary hospital is not accredited, nearly 60% of pet owners think it is. In reality, the American Animal Hospital Association’s accreditation examination process has only been completed by 12–15 percent of animal hospitals (AAHA). Being an AAHA-accredited hospital makes us proud.

All hospitals in the United States that treat patients with Medicare are required to be recognised by an accrediting organisation, and they go through ongoing reviews and quality inspections to make sure they uphold the highest standards of care in all areas of patient care. Since AAHA certification is not required by law, several veterinary hospitals opt not to pursue it. Accreditation in the field of pet health care is optional. It takes a lot of time and effort to become accredited, thus not all veterinary hospitals are willing to put themselves through it.

An animal hospital that has been accredited by the AAHA has been judged on 900 or so veterinary excellence standards. Every three years, hospitals must pass a thorough review by veterinary professionals in order to keep their certification. State and provincial laws can differ significantly. In fact, several jurisdictions only conduct routine hospital inspections when a pet owner files a complaint. States and provinces do not differ in the requirements for AAHA accreditation, which is regarded as the benchmark for veterinary excellence (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).
