Herrin hosting AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day celebration

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Herrin Animal Hospital invites the community to visit the business on Monday for snacks, drawings and giveaways to celebrate AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day.

Come by the hospital at 93 Smithson Drive in Cassville and feel free to bring a pet to visit. The event will be held all day, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Drawings will be held on Tuesday and winners will be called.

Herrin Animal Hospital is joining the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) in celebrating AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day on July 22. Herrin Animal Hospital earned AAHA accreditation, which is awarded to veterinary hospitals practicing the highest level of veterinary excellence, after a rigorous review of the hospitalís practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.

The mission of AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day is to highlight the exceptional care provided by AAHA-accredited practices. Unlike human hospitals, animal hospitals are not required to be accredited, a fact that is not common knowledge to many pet owners. In 2016, AAHA designated July 22 as AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day in an effort to educate pet owners about what accreditation means for their pets and to thank accredited practices for holding themselves to a higher standard.

Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, Herrin Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
