We Are AAHA-Accredited

Accreditation by AAHA (the American Animal Hospital Association) is more than just a title. It’s a method of practice; a commitment to higher standards for our animal companions. It contributes to the experience we create for pets. Buffalo Grove Animal Hospital is proud to offer our community superior care as an AAHA-Accredited Animal Hospital.


What It Takes

Becoming and remaining accredited is no easy task. We voluntarily undergo an inspection every three years by AAHA Representatives who ensure that we are maintaining their Standards of Excellence. These standards cover some 900 elements of an animal hospital, from the most complex surgical procedures to everyday interactions with our clients. A sample of what these standards cover includes:

  • Cleanliness and hygiene
  • Surgical protocols and equipment
  • Pain management
  • Anesthesia
  • Patient interactions
  • Vaccinations
  • Customer services
  • Organization of medical records
  • And so much more

Why Choose an AAHA-Accredited Animal Hospital

As a conscientious pet owner, you want the best for your animal companion. Yet, choosing a veterinarian for them can be a challenge. Since animal hospitals are not required to be accredited, the quality of care can vary across the board. At an AAHA-Accredited Hospital, you can be sure that your pet is receiving the highest standards and latest practices in veterinary medicine.
