What is an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital?

The veterinary team at Northwest Veterinary Clinic of Stanwood is proud to be able to meet the rigorous veterinary standards for care and service to be accredited by the AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association).

What is AAHA Accreditation?

AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada.

To become accredited by the AAHA, an animal hospital must be evaluated on a range of stringent standards of quality that include all aspects of veterinary medicine from patient care and team training to record-keeping and pain management.

AAHA accreditation is continuously updated and reevaluated to keep accredited hospitals at the forefront of the profession.
