Proud to be AAHA Accredited!

If you are a client here at Midland Animal Clinic, you’ve surely seen, or heard, that we are AAHA Accredited.  We have it proudly posted on our sign out front, in the lobby, on our website and on FaceBook; but what does that mean exactly?

AAHA stands for the American Animal Hospital Association.  They are an association of members who primarily treat companion animals.  AAHA created the Accreditation Program to help set at higher standard of care for companion animals, create a better working realationship between veterinary staff, and provide clinics with a way show their dedication to excellence with their clients and community.

Here at Midland Animal Clinic, we have been Accredited since 1966.  We undergo an intense evaluation process every three years in which we are evaluated on over 900 standards.  Some of the areas on which we are graded include: patient care, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, pet health records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental and nursing care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education.

Of all of the small animal practices in the United States, only 15% are Accredited through AAHA.  We are very proud to be the only clinic in Midland County with this achievement!
