AAHA Accredited Practice

Society Hill Veterinary Hospital is proud to be a 30+ year American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited veterinary hospital and to have earned the right to display the AAHA accredited logo throughout our website and hospital. This distinction is achieved by fewer than 15 percent of animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and represents the highest seal of approval by our industry’s only independent accreditation organization.

AAHA accredited practices are at the heart of better care for pets and their people. They hold themselves to a higher standard (up to 900 higher standards, in fact). Pets are their passion and keeping them healthy is their number-one priority. They strive to deliver excellent care for pets because pets deserve nothing less.

As a member of a very elite group of animal hospitals, Society Hill Veterinary Hospital undergoes a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation by AAHA inspectors every three years. Additionally, these three-year evaluations require us to remain up-to-date on the latest advancements within our industry.

AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada. Practices that choose to pursue accreditation are evaluated on stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine—from pain management and patient care to team training and medical recordkeeping—and are continuously updated to keep accredited practice teams at the forefront of the profession.

Though accreditation is voluntary, we believe in the principles of professionalism and excellence established by the AAHA. We proudly display the AAHA’s logo as a sign to our community and clients that we are committed to providing you and your pet with the best veterinary care possible.
