AAHA-Accredited for All the Right Reasons

Accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association is not a simple accolade. To us, it’s a philosophy; a way of practicing veterinary medicine. As an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, Melrose Animal Clinic treats pets like the valued family members they are. We're pet owners and animal lovers ourselves, and we understand that the human-animal bond is sacred and should be fostered with compassion and superb veterinary care—because when your pet is in their best health, your bond with them is strongest too.

What does AAHA do for me?

Distinction of Excellence

Achieving accreditation by AAHA is no easy task. Only about 15% of animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada have achieved accreditation. AAHA sets rigorous veterinary standards that cover some 900 elements of our practice. These Standards of Excellence, as they are called, pertain to the following aspects:

  • Anesthetic protocols
  • Pain management
  • Client services and education
  • Diagnostic capabilities and practices
  • Cleanliness and hygiene
  • Surgical equipment
  • Patient care
  • Pet medical records and privacy
  • And so much more

A Level of Care Like Nowhere Else

Your pet deserves the best, and so do you. When you choose an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, you’re choosing a veterinary team that puts compassion and respect at the forefront of every service. We treat your pet with the same level of care we’d expect for own. If you want to learn more about the AAHA difference at our animal hospital, you can contact our team at (781) 662-4888.
