AAHA-Accredited Hospitals: Champions for Excellent Care

Valleydale Animal Clinic is proud to be one of only 4 AAHA-accredited veterinary hospitals in greater Birmingham.

Less than 15% of animal hospitals in the United States have gone through the voluntary accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). The accreditation process is rigorous and time-consuming, and not every veterinary hospital wants to go through the lengthy process, but we know the value.

Pet owners gain peace of mind when they choose an accredited animal hospital because they know their AAHA-accredited hospital has passed the highest standards of veterinary care.

AAHA-accreditation means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion. And keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. At Valleydale Animal Clinic, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets. Because your pets deserve nothing less.
