Dr. John Houghton of Hambright Animal Hospital, 11725 Hambright Road in Huntersville, is pleased to announce their accreditation for Veterinary Excellence from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).
The non-profit AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the United States and Canada. AAHA accredited veterinary hospitals are champions for excellent pet health care, holding themselves to the highest of standards in veterinary care and voluntarily choosing to be evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary care.

Consultants regularly visit these hospitals to ensure compliance with AAHA’s standards for services and facilities.
“Being recognized as an AAHA accredited hospital demonstrates our commitment in providing the highest veterinary care to our pet patients and their families, giving them peace of mind when they choose our practice,” says John Houghton, DVM and Medical Director at Hambright Animal Hospital.
