AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital - Petaluma Veterinary Hospital
Learn Why This is Important To You And Your Pets?
Why AAHA-Accredition is the Standard of Veterinary Excellence
Petaluma Veterinary Hospital choose to become AAHA Accredited 33+ years ago to ensure that your pet would receive the highest quality care possible. AAHA Accreditation is not mandatory. Consequently, only about 15% of veterinary hospitals in the USA choose to go through the rigorous evaluation process necessary to become accredited.
Every 3 years we undergo comprehensive evaluations (on 900 standards of veterinary care) by AAHA veterinary experts. Areas covered include quality of care, pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education.
