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.

We absolutely LOVE Tipp City Vet! All of the staff are professional and friendly, always happy to see us and my girl, Ollie! I have been bringing Ollie here for care for about 2 years and always had a wonderful experience. They are thorough and make sure you feel at ease about your pet.
About two months ago, we started bringing my girl here for doggy daycare once or twice a week and she loves it! She has a chance to get all her Aussie energy out while I'm at work. She's always so happy when I pick her up!!
My family has also utilized their lodging services several times. You can board your pets separately or together. They offer extra play sessions, bathing, etc. And if you're still worried about your pet, you can text their lodging phone number and they will send you pictures of your pet! Great for nervous Dog Moms like me!
Can't say enough good things!

Anytime we go out of town we keep one of our dogs at the boarding portion of the hospital. She LOVES it. After a couple of stays she has realized how much she loves this place and no longer tries to pull us out the door when we arrive (this in my book is a good sign)! She’s always exhausted when we pick her up, so that reassures me that they take the time to play with her and that she doesn’t have any built up energy she needs to release once home as attention was not given. The staff is amazing and take great care of the animals. Also very reasonable pricing on boarding for what they offer!

Great clean facility, super friendly staff! Dr Joel was really nice, attentive and knowledgeable! Love that they have Sunday hours and that they see small pets like our guinea pig. They took great care of her and were able to get us a Sunday appointment right before closing on Saturday. Would recommend and go back.

The staff and vets are always pleased when I bring our Boston Terrier in. It’s awesome to have them stop and pet her before we even get into our appointment. During the appointment, the Vet (have had 3 different ones) treats her so special and sweet talk her to calm her down (all of them have). They care about how we feel and how she feels! Love it!
