We have been AAHA-Accredited since 1992

What This Means to You

AAHA_tC_2All Pets Animal Hospital is one of only 10 veterinary hospitals in Arkansas to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA.)  Choosing an AAHA accredited hospital for your pet’s medical care assures you that the hospital you have selected has the team, equipment, medical procedures and facilities that are important for the delivery of high quality veterinary care.

AAHA standards are widely used as benchmarks to measure excellence in veterinary medicine. Founded in 1933, it remains the only association that provides voluntary accreditation to companion animal hospitals.

Our hospital has been successfully evaluated by an AAHA practice consultant on approximately 900 standards in 20 different categories that directly correlate to the care we provide for your pet. The standards are periodically reviewed and updated to ensure they remain consistent with advances in veterinary medicine and technology.

To be accredited by AAHA, our hospital must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service. AAHA’s standards cover every aspect of our hospital to assure your satisfaction with the level of care both you and your pet receives. For example, our hospital complies with standards regarding anesthesia and surgery, our in-house laboratory, standards of nursing care, pain management and critical care, as well as our pharmacy, diagnostic imaging protocols and medical records. There are also standards regarding our facility itself including housekeeping, maintenance, and safety. Client care is also addressed with standards for service and referrals.

We are proud to be an AAHA-accredited practice and believe this helps keep us on the leading edge of veterinary medicine and focused on continuous improvement to assure you that we can offer the quality and range of services you expect and deserve for your pet.

We understand that your pet holds a valued place in your life; we respect and honor that special bond by providing the best possible care for your pet. Our accreditation by AAHA is just one way we can demonstrate to you our commitment to excellence.
