"Our veterinary practice team prides ourselves on practicing the best medicine and customer service possible. AAHA accreditation helps us to stay on track and keep us informed on what we need to stay on top. AAHA accreditation is also a great way to validate what we do. If it is an AAHA standard and we practice it, then we know we are doing a good job for our clients, patients, and team."
