AAHA Accreditation: Why it’s important

As an American Animal Hospital Association-accredited practice, Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty has met rigorous national standards for top-quality care—which means you can trust us to provide the best-possible care for your pet, day or night.

This is an entirely voluntary accreditation, one that we undertook because we hold ourselves to a higher standard. We believe it’s what your pet deserves. Only 15% of practices in North America are AAHA-Accredited.
