The AAHA Difference

AAHA AccreditedThe Janesville Veterinary clinic has achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough reevaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.

State and provincial regulations for hospitals can vary widely – in fact, some states don’t routinely inspect hospitals. AAHA-accredited hospitals are the only hospitals that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services.

Surprisingly, nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe that their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine.

Pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet’s health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team. At AAHA-accredited practices, pet owners can expect to receive the highest quality care from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.

Only the top small animal hospitals in Canada and the United States have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, the Janesville Veterinary Clinic continues to be rigorously evaluated regularly by AAHA.
