The AAHA Difference

Garden Oaks Veterinary Clinic received accreditation with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) in December 2016, and we invite you to see what being having an accredited veterinary hospital means for you and your pet. This status is only earned by 12% of veterinary hospitals in North America, and it signifies that we have been evaluated on approximately 900 rigorous veterinary standards outlined by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) to ensure that we provide the highest quality of patient care and client service. During our Barkstreet Bash, we will have stations set up throughout the hospital that you can visit to hear from our team members what our accreditation means during each step of your visit.
