July 22nd is AAHA day!

July 22nd is AAHA day! Today, we celebrate being an AAHA accredited practice but what does that mean? Unlike human hospitals, animal hospitals are not required to be accredited. Veterinary hospitals that choose to become accredited are evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence in order to become accredited by AAHA or the American Animal Hospital Association. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. The Standards of Accreditation are continuously reviewed and updated to keep accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence. The standards address patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education. To maintain accredited status, hospitals undergo comprehensive on-site evaluations every three years. Westarbor Animal Hospital is proud to be among the hospitals that were called to go above and beyond the to become accredited and are happy to celebrate this achievement. We invite you to celebrate with us by visiting our Facebook page and posting about what it means to you to be a part of an AAHA accredited clinic!
