Town and Country Animal Hospital is one of the few to be a Naples FL AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital. We have been AAHA Accredited since 2012.

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) was founded in 1933 and is the only association in North America that provides accreditation to veterinary animal hospitals.

To become a Naples FL AAHA accredited animal hospital, we had to demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service. We had to be independently measured against the most rigorous set of comprehensive standards in the veterinary industry. Only 15% of animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada are accredited; and we’re one of them!

 

We are independently re-evaluated every three years   based on AAHA’s Standards of Accreditation. This accreditation process is composed of—an Naples FL AAHA Accredited Animal Hospitalextensive list of 900 standards that directly correlate to the every-day care that we are providing for our clients’ pets.
