What is the American Animal Hospital Association?

The American Animal Hospital Association, typically referred to as “AAHA,” was founded in 1933 by veterinary leaders and is the only accrediting organization for animal hospitals in all of North America. This means that AAHA sets the ultimate standard for quality veterinary care.

Since its founding, AAHA has continued to evolve to improve the standards of care for companion animals and their owners. Guidelines and protocols are regularly updated to improve treatments and outcomes for animal patients and create a better veterinary experience for pets and people alike.

Only about 15% of all animal hospitals in North America are AAHA accredited, owing to the difficulty of becoming accredited and the commitment it requires for each veterinary team member. This commitment to excellence is exactly what sets Coyne Veterinary Center and other AAHA-accredited vets apart.
