American Animal Hospital Association
What is the American Animal Hospital Association?
Established in 1933 by leaders in the veterinary profession, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), is the only exclusive companion animal veterinary association. AAHA is well known for its high standards in veterinary practices and quality pet care and promotes those standards within the veterinary profession and to the public. The Association develops benchmarks of excellence, business practice standards, informative publications and educational programs designed to help companion animal practices thrive.
The Animal Hospital of Nashua is proud to be an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) since 1992. We have regularly undergone inspections by AAHA to insure that we comply with the Association’s high quality standards covering all aspects of veterinary medicine including surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, pet health records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental and nursing care, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. Only a small percentage of animal hospitals in the United States, approximately 17 percent, are accredited by AAHA.
The purpose of the American Animal Hospital Association is to:
- Enhance the abilities of veterinarians to provide quality medical care to companion animals
- Enable veterinarians to successfully conduct their practices and maintain their facilities with high standards of excellence
- Meet the public’s needs as they relate to the delivery of small animal veterinary medicine
