Accreditation by AAHA provides you, our valued client, with confidence in knowing your family pet is receiving excellent care by experienced health care providers in a hospital that is held to exemplary standards.

About Our Veterinary Accreditation
Being accredited by AAHA means that our animal hospital is compliant with maintaining hundreds of standards established by AAHA. To stay current with our accreditation, we voluntarily submit to being evaluated every three years by AAHA consultants. Our facility is inspected for hygiene and overall cleanliness and safety. We are also evaluated on our procedures for pain management and providing for patient comfort during their stay. Evaluation includes diagnostics, surgical procedures, and dental services as well.
Accreditation with AAHA is held by a select group of veterinarian hospitals across the country. In fact, only 11% can offer this standard of excellence. Our accreditation through AAHA is your guarantee of West Ridge Animal Health Center‘s commitment to your pet’s wellness.
