2020 AAHA Accreditation Press Release

For Immediate Release: November 18, 2020

Eastwood Animal Clinic Earns Accreditation from Top Veterinary Association; Less than 15% of small-animal hospitals in the US and Canada achieve AAHA accreditation

[Rutland Vermont]—Eastwood Animal Clinic is proud to announce that it has achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Eastwood Animal Clinic earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility, and client service.


Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited. Pet owners can trust that an AAHA-accredited hospital follows the AAHA Standards of Accreditation, which are continuously reviewed and updated by leaders in the veterinary profession to reflect changing best practices from the cutting edge of veterinary medicine.


AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry because they voluntarily choose to be evaluated on more than 900 quality standards that go above and beyond state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services.
