AAHA Accreditation

We are proud to say that our practice is one of the few AAHA accredited practices in west-central Ohio. AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. Through AAHA accreditation program we voluntarily chose to be evaluated on over 900 standards in the following areas: quality of care; diagnostic & pharmacy; management; medical records; and facility.

This is just one facet of our commitment to provide the highest quality animal healthcare available.

AAHA Accreditation
Less than 14% of the small animal veterinary facilities in the USA and Canada are accredited members of AAHA
AAHA Background

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is an organization serving veterinarians and staff members, who are engaged in the delivery of veterinary medical care to companion animals. In addition to providing educational programs and publications and various services to practices, the Association publishes Standards for veterinary practices. Those practices that choose to undergo periodic on-site evaluation by AAHA staff may become accredited by the Association. Membership in AAHA and participation in the Accreditation Program is voluntary.

AAHA Importance to You and Your Pet

Why does this matter to you? Here are a few examples of how AAHA’s standards impact you and your pet.

  • The Standards require hospitals to provide diagnostic services (x-ray and laboratory) so that they can quickly and accurately diagnose your pet.
  • The Standards focus on the quality of care in the areas of anesthesia, contagious diseases, dentistry, pain management, patient care, surgery and emergency care.
  • Accredited hospitals have an onsite pharmacy (another standards area) so they can begin treatment immediately.
  • AAHA Standards require that medical records be thorough and complete to help practitioners better understand your pet’s medical history and how past health issues might be impacting their current medical status.

AAHA Standards & Accreditation

  • The Standards developed and published by AAHA are widely accepted as representing those components of veterinary practice that represent high-quality care.
  • The Standards are periodically reviewed and updated to ensure that they remain consistent with evolving knowledge and technology. They cover physical facilities, equipment, patient and staff safety, staff continuing education and training, medical record keeping, and medical protocols.
  • Those practices that wish to be accredited complete an application and preparation process, which culminates with an on-site evaluation by a veterinary professional employed by AAHA.
  • Those practices that are found to be in compliance with the Standards established by the Association are awarded AAHA Accredited Practice status. In order to maintain accreditation, the practice must undergo additional on-site evaluations, at intervals of approximately every three years.

Honestly they were wonderful, they were very nice and caring and took very good care of my baby. They also made sure I understood what was going on. Even after everything they let me call and answered any questions or concerns that I had until I felt better as well.

They are the best when it comes to taking care of our furry babies =)
Great customer service and they are wonderful with both our dogs and cat. Thank you all
For the hugs, belly rubbs, and loving our fur family. We moved 3 years ago yet we will continue the 45 minute drive for this kind of family friendly service.

Highly recommend!!!
Annie, my Golden Retriever Mix, is not a patient there, but got both her Flu vaccines at Tipp City Vet.
The First one, was at their drive up clinic and the second one at their office.
Both were fantastic experiences! The staff (Dr Jim Mathias, the Vet Techs, and Front office) were all super friendly, professional, and great with Annie! And they were very accommodating too, as I had to change my appointment a few times, in order to fit my ever changing schedule.
If I didn’t already have a vet that I love, and am very loyal to; I would definitely make the 30 minute drive to their office!

Always happy with the staff. Lots of space so the pets can have their own space. The most honest Dr.s ever. These people truly care, they aren’t just trying to make money off of you. They want what’s best for your pet.
