The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization to accredit companion animal veterinary hospitals. They set standards for quality veterinary care throughout the entire hospital. These standards strive for excellence in client and patient care, and give us guidelines to help us accomplish that.

Only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals in Canada and the US are accredited with their organization!

To become AAHA accredited, Truro Vet was evaluated on 900 standards of care. These are all encompassing for each section of the hospital. We have always been very proud of our patient care and how we work together as a team to provide it. Gaining AAHA accreditation gives us access to endless resources to guidelines in patient care. This helps us keep up to date with the ever-changing science of veterinary medicine and how we provide it to you and your pet. When you take your pet to an AAHA accredited veterinary clinic you can be confident you will be receiving quality care.

We are excited about our new AAHA accreditation and invite you to ask us more about it! For more information please check out
