Dr. Gluckman and a few of the staff members at Mendon Village Animal Hospital recently traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to accept an award celebrating our 25th Anniversary of being an AAHA accredited hospital!

What is AAHA?

The American Animal Hospital Association is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada. AAHA sets strict standards of excellence they require their hospitals to adhere to. Their goal is to ensure that pet owners receive the highest quality care for their pets from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.

  • Unlike human hospitals, animal hospitals are not required to be accredited. This means animal hospitals are allowed to operate by their own standards of care, with no organization to oversee them.
  • Animal hospitals that wish to be accredited by AAHA voluntarily submit themselves to be evaluated. Mendon Village Animal Hospital has chosen to go above and beyond basic state regulations.
  • Less than 15% of animal hospitals in the United States can claim the distinction of being AAHA accredited.
