AAHA-Accredited Hospitals: Champions for Excellent Care

We know your pet is very important to you: a companion, a friend, a confidante.

Your dog or cat is a member of your family. Like any family member, your pet deserves the finest possible health care. It is not uncommon for veterinarians to say they offer the “best” or “highest quality” care. It is an easy claim to make, but it is much harder to prove your continuing dedication to excellence by submitting to recurring inspections and following over 4,000 comprehensive standards in order to maintain accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

AAHA-accredited hospitals are thorough, responsive, sanitary, safe and have all been evaluated on standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain our accreditation, we undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence, and does not vary between states.

While accreditation is required for human hospitals, accreditation is completely voluntary for veterinary hospitals. Attaining and keeping accreditation is a significant investment in time, money and effort. This is why only 12-15% of animal hospitals have gone through the accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association.

We are proud to call ourselves an AAHA-accredited hospital. Pets are our passion. And keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Here at Rising Sun Animal Care, we strive to deliver excellent care for your pets because they deserve nothing less.
