Hospital Inspections Promote Great Care

logo-aahaDid you know that in Connecticut there is no requirement for a veterinary hospital to ever be reviewed or inspected? Our inspection by AAHA is entirely voluntary, yet we have been accredited for over 25 years now. Why bother?

Every three years CAH undergoes a very thorough inspection and review of our facility, equipment and protocols for over 900 different items. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) constantly improves its requirements to reflect the continually changing advances in veterinary care.

Oversight by an outside organization helps us to maintain the highest possible standards of care for our patients – your pets. As we prepare for an upcoming inspection we constantly improve things like anesthesia, dental care, laboratory procedures, record keeping, pain control, surgical protocols, housekeeping and many other areas of care. This keeps us on our toes in our goal of offering the best veterinary care available. We know that you may not fully see the difference that hospital inspection by AAHA makes, but it gives us pride to be among the less than 20 percent of hospitals in the U.S. to be accredited – and the only one in the Thames/Mystic River valleys. You can rest easy knowing that we’ve been doing everything possible to give your pets great care for over 25 years.
