AAHA Accreditation

American Animal Hospital Association Accredited - The Standard of Veterinary Excellence

The Cat Doctors was one of the first feline-friendly veterinary hospitals in the United States to be evaluated and accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Every year, we undergo a rigorous evaluation to maintain this level of veterinary excellence.

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited. State regulations can vary widely – in fact, some states don’t even routinely inspect veterinary hospitals. AAHA-accredited veterinary hospitals are the only ones that elect to be evaluated on such extensive criteria.

Here are just a few highlights of the 900+ quality AAHA standards we insist on for our feline patients, which go beyond basic state regulations for veterinary care:

  • Providing elevated spaces for cat carriers
  • Giving cats staying overnight a safe place to hide within their kennels
  • Safe and stress-free handling techniques
  • Advanced diagnostic services
  • Anesthesia and pain management guidelines
  • Monitoring and support guidelines during the treatment recovery phase
  • Regular advanced team education on AAHA standards

As a pet owner, you want the highest level of care for your cat, and that’s what we are committed to through our AAHA-accreditation. We provide the same consistent, expert standards of care that we want for our own feline pets.
