Accredited Veterinary Hospital – Washington Court House, OH, & Fayette County
We’re proud to be associated with less than 18% of animal hospitals who maintain the strict standards of quality care as determined by the American Animal Hospital Association. We strive for excellence!
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is an international association of more than 17,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. Established in 1933, AAHA is well known among veterinarians and pet owners for its standards for hospitals and pet health care. Over 2,800 veterinary hospitals voluntarily participate in the AAHA hospital evaluation program. Trained consultants regularly visit these hospitals to ensure compliance with AAHA’s standards for services and facilities. Individual veterinarians can also be members of AAHA. These affiliate members subscribe to the same general principles as hospital members but do not participate in AAHA hospital evaluations.
AAHA reminds pet owners that they can help pets live healthier and longer lives by taking their pets to the veterinarian for annual physical exams, vaccinations, and dental care as well as providing pets with fresh water, a balanced diet, and exercise.
Choosing a Veterinary Hospital
It’s important to choose a veterinary hospital before you need one. Ask family, friends and neighbors for recommendations. Once you find a hospital, take some time to check it out. Ask for a tour of the facility, and use your eyes and nose to detect cleanliness. Also check if the facility is well lit. Does it have laboratory equipment? Is there gas anesthesia? If it doesn’t meet your expectations, turn around and leave.
Hospitals that are accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) meet high veterinary care standards. Each hospital voluntarily completes a detailed evaluation of its services and equipment. Then a trained practice consultant thoroughly inspects the hospital to make sure it meets AAHA’s high standards in the areas of:
- Emergency Services
- Surgery and Anesthesia
- Radiology Services
- Pathology Services
- Nursing Care
- Examination Facilities
- Pet Medical Records
- Medical Library
- Housekeeping and Maintenance
Less than 18 percent of the small animal veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited AAHA members.
