  • American Animal Hospital Association
    •  AAHA Membership:  Research shows that AAHA-accredited practices have more loyal, engaged clients, earn more revenue, and have higher staff-to-doctor ratios. But many practices value the hidden benefits of natural team-building and improved morale that comes from preparing for an AAHA evaluation even more.
