Becoming an AAHA Accredited Hospital

The Village Vets Decatur provides the best of veterinary medicine to every patient. To showcase our dedication and develop the trust of pet owners in and around Decatur, we became an AAHA-accredited animal hospital. Unlike human hospitals, animal hospitals are not required to be accredited, and only about 15% of all animal hospitals in the US and Canada have achieved accreditation.

Why You Should Choose an AAHA-Accredited Hospital

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) measures animal hospitals against 900 standards of veterinary excellence. Since animal hospitals are not required to meet these standards, the quality of care can vary greatly across the board. When it comes to your pet’s health, we believe they deserve top-of-the-line veterinary care. Don’t you agree?

Here are a few areas that are addressed by AAHA’s standards:

  • Cleanliness and hygiene
  • Surgical procedures and equipment
  • Anesthesia protocol
  • Diagnostics
  • Dental care
  • Vaccinations
  • Pain management
  • Emergency services
  • Client services
  • And so much more
