Our Veterinary Certifications
American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA)
AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are continuously reviewed and updated to keep accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.
Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited. Pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet’s health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team. At AAHA-accredited practices, pet owners can expect to receive the highest quality care from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.
Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital and Veterinary Emergency Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
