MedVet Indianapolis has achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). MedVet Indianapolis earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility, and client service.  MedVet Indianapolis offers services in Cardiology, Dentistry & Oral Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology, Radiology, Rehabilitation, and Surgery.

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.

Established in 1933, AAHA is the accrediting organization for companion animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada, but earning accreditation is no simple task. To be accredited by AAHA, a practice must be evaluated on approximately 900 benchmarks of veterinary excellence. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are also continuously reviewed and updated, keeping accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.

MedVet’s AAHA accreditation demonstrates the ability to provide an exceptional level of veterinary care for companion pets and customer service. It also demonstrates the commitment to always be at the forefront of veterinary technology and medicine. Standards set by AAHA are widely recognized, and veterinary hospitals that are accredited are prominently different in methods and reputation than those that aren’t. MedVet Indianapolis is proud to be one of the less than 20% of veterinary practices to have earned this recognition.

Pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet’s health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team. At AAHA-accredited practices, pet owners can expect to receive the highest quality care from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.

“Achieving AAHA accreditation is a remarkable achievement, reflecting the incredible commitment to excellent standards of practice by each and every individual in the hospital,” states MedVet Indianapolis Medical Director, Matthew Lemmons, DVM, Diplomate, AVDC.  To maintain accredited status, MedVet Indianapolis must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.  For more information about accreditation, visit aaha.org/petowner.
