Orchard Road Animal Hospital again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). On July 25, 2012, a consultant from AAHA visited our practice for a thorough review of the facility. This evaluation included a quality assessment of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management. Based on this visit, AAHA renewed our accreditation. Orchard Road Animal Hospital has been an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association since 2001.
Only about 15 percent of all small animal veterinary facilities in the United States are accredited hospital members of the association. In order to maintain accredited status, Orchard Road Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated every three years by the association’s trained consultants.
The American Animal Hospital Association is an international organization of more than 16,000 veterinary care providers who treat companion animals. For more information, please visit their web site: www.aahanet.org.
