Did you know that accreditation for animal hospitals is voluntary? Surprising, isn’t it? Nearly 60 percent of pet owners believe that their pet’s veterinary hospital is accredited when it is not. In actuality, only 12-15% of animal hospitals have gone through the rigorous accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and Norway Veterinary Hospital is proud to be among that elite group.
Accreditation by AAHA means that an animal hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. To maintain their accreditation, hospitals undergo a rigorous review by veterinary experts every three years. AAHA accreditation is considered the standard for veterinary excellence and does not vary between states or provinces (AAHA accredits hospitals in both the U.S. and Canada).
The fact that we are an AAHA-accredited hospital means that we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion and keeping them healthy is our number one priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets, because your pets deserve nothing less.
