Learn Why We Follow AAHA Standards

We at Uptown Vets are committed to providing the absolute best care possible for our patients.  The American Animal Hospital Associated, or AAHA, sets standards for exceptional veterinary care that go beyond the legal minimums all hospitals must meet. We are proud to be one of only 27 AAHA accredited animal hospitals in NYC. We feel strongly about our commitment to excellence and our accreditation is proof of that!

What Does AAHA Accreditation Mean?

We voluntarily have our animal hospital inspected regularly by AAHA in order to receive our accreditation.  Their inspectors check more than 900 areas, including anesthesia, surgery, dental care, diagnostic imaging, laboratory protocols, pain management, and pharmacy controls.  This is designed to ensure we are providing the best possible veterinary care, utilizing state-of-the-art tools, providing treatment in the most sanitary environment, and more.

The inspection additionally checks for safety and maintenance, medical records, and client communication standards. We are required to offer rigorous continuing education for the staff and continually reinforce our team members’ commitment to excellence as well.
