Pet Care Earns AAHA Accreditation

Pet Care Veterinary Hospital of Virginia Beach has again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association. The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management.

Only 15 percent of all small animal veterinary practices in the U.S. have achieved accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association. In order to maintain accredited status, Pet Care Veterinary Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association’s trained consultants.

“Pet Care Veterinary Hospital belongs to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting the highest standards in veterinary medicine,” says Daniel S. Aja, DVM, AAHA president. “AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols. By attaining accreditation, Pet Care Veterinary Hospital is demonstrating its dedication to offering the best care to its patients and clients.”
