ECEC is an AAHA accredited practice. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is an organization that sets “The Standard of Veterinary Excellence,” established by a group of veterinary professionals dedicated to quality and consistent pet care. Being accredited demonstrates that ECEC upholds the gold standard of veterinary care – meaning this is what your patient will receive while in our hospital. To become accredited, a practice must undergo an evaluation of over 900 general and mandatory standards, ranging from pet care, pain management, cleanliness, and record keeping. Only about 15% of veterinary practices in the U.S. hold this distinction. We are very proud to belong to this organization and to have obtained this accreditation status.
