AAHA Accredited

AAHA Banner

The Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic has been an AAHA accredited hospital since 1999. So, what does that mean?
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices throughout the United States and Canada. Accreditation indicates that the veterinary practice has shown a dedication to high standards of veterinary care. Only 14% of all small animal hospitals in the U.S. have passed the regular reviews of AAHA’s stringent accreditation standards that cover patient care, client service, and medical protocols.

The Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic last passed the AAHA accreditation review in January, 2014, which included a quality assessment review of our facility, medical equipment, practice methods, and pet health care management. Our AAHA accreditation is so important that we are already working toward our 2016 reaccreditation.

According to Anna Worth, VMD, AAHA president, “The Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic belongs to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting the highest standards in veterinary medicine. AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols. By attaining accreditation, the Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic is demonstrating its dedication to offering the best care to its patients and clients.”

The Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic is proud to be the only veterinary practice within a 20 mile radius that has achieved AAHA accreditation.
