AAHA-Accredited Logo

The UC Davis veterinary hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, the only organization to accredit companion animal veterinary hospitals. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry because they voluntarily choose to be evaluated on more than 900 quality standards that go above and beyond state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services. Less than 15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada achieve AAHA accreditation.

Beyond the main hospital on the Davis campus, the SVM also has two satellite clinical facilities:

UC Veterinary Medical Center - San Diego

UC Veterinary Medicine Teaching & Research Center - Tulare
