Slide What it Means AAHA is an organization with a simple mission: to certify excellence in everything that a veterinary practice must do to offer truly exceptional care. In order to earn and keep certification, a practice must demonstrate excellence during inspections and testing in approximately 900 areas of running a practice - from surgical protocols, to staff training, and everything in between. Because the standards are so stringent, fewer than 15% of veterinary practices are AAHA accredited. We are proud to be one of the few. Because when it comes to your pet, we know nothing less than the best will do.
