Adams Morgan Animal Hospital: what do users think?


Josh Griff: First time bringing my dog here and had a good experience. The doctor seemed to know what was wrong with my dog and his infection cleared up within 24 hours of treatment. Making an appointment was easy and you get seen in a reasonable time. I am glad I was able to go back to see the vet with my dog because some places do not allow that currently.

Joseph Miller: My wife and I had to take our cat for an emergency trip to another vet hospital in early February where we received the unfortunate news that our cat had cancer. We had an already scheduled annual check up with Adams Morgan Animal Hospital later that month. During the visit the doctor spent 20 minutes with us going over the X-rays, scans, and blood work. Afterwards we decided we would take her home and let her enjoy her final days in her normal environment. Flash forward to this past Friday when we noticed our cat had taken a turn for the worse and we knew it was time. When we contacted Adams Morgan Animal Hospital I explained the situation and they could not have been more accommodating! Even with their fully booked schedule they made arrangements to see her right away. During our difficult time Adams Morgan Animal Hospital was there for us and we will forever be grateful.

Amy Lee: Pretty good! Nice helpful staff. A little less attentive to the nervousness of my dog as I would have hoped but still great care. I’ll be back.

Kaitlyn Stovall: I brought my cats here for over six years, seeing Dr. Boone (Jr) and Dr. Madden several times each. Vet care - I was always pleased with their attention to the animals and advice given to me, especially initially as a very nervous, probably over-eager first-time cat owner. Both doctors and vet techs seemed to remember my cats and have a way with calming them. Office staff (because there are several negative reviewers on this point) - On occasion over several years people may not have been overly cheery at busy times but they were always professional and patient in explaining prices and then evolving coronavirus prevention measures, and they always worked hard to fit me in when one of my pets was sick - I never had to find an emergency or other vet during business hours. I was sad to have to find a new vet when I moved recently, but the office staff were very responsive and helpful in transferring records. Prices - reasonable for the neighborhood.

Michelle McKeever: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueMy cat, Hope, needed boosters and an annual check up and I am SO glad I went to Adams Morgan Animal Hospital. Everything was easy and affordable and Hope left happy for a cat that had to get her shots. I so appreciate this place!

Sulzhan Bali: I got to know about Dr Boone through word of mouth ( a friend takes his dog there) and my new pup loves going to this vet. The staff are really well informed and provide a good balance of loving care, preventative tips, and value. The staff remembers all dogs, and I greatly appreciate that. For example, once when I had a question about my pup and I called in to ask, the next time I called to book her vaccine appointment, they even asked me how she was doing. Dr Boone had come out to answer all my questions patiently on our first visit, which I was most grateful for.

China Dickerson: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ResponsivenessI was looking for a Black-owned vet located in DC proper and found this place! It's super convenient (I live downtown); they know my dog well (they call him by name as soon as he walks in); and the doctors know exactly what they are talking about. I love this clinic (and my puppy loves it too!)

Lucky Barbieri: The team is wonderful and very helpful. Took care of my kitty in no time. Also boots the cat runs the show there haha. Huge fan

Ceterisbearibus: Their phone system has had issues on an almost consistent basis which makes it very difficult to get in contact with them. Today their phone system said it is down because it is July 4th (it is September 13th). What if there was an emergency and you needed to contact them? Unacceptable, I’m going to be looking for a new vet that can be reliably contacted.

Kaitlyn Marshall: These amazing people fit me in at the last possible moment and took fantastic care of my cat Oliver. I found out he had a bladder blockage and they did everything for him. I couldn’t go to the animal urgent care facility and they undoubtedly saved his life. I will be making this his new primary care vet. Can’t recommend enough!

Collins Hospital for Animals: what do users think?


Nathan Lapin: It was easy to make an appointment with Collins hospital for animals. They followed COVID-19 procedures ensuring safety for both themselves and us, as well as our pet. They came out and got our pet and called us when they were almost done. Then they had us watching how they trim our pets nails, which is really helpful going forward. Watching them with our pet made us feel like he was in good hands. They were gentle and kind with our pet, which put us at ease. This is definitely a prime place to take an animal to the veterinarian! I highly recommend.

Samantha Horn: I have taken both my dogs to Collins since moving to DC. They have affordable vet care. The staff is very caring. The vets are empathetic and truly care about the animals. They have even referred me to AFFORDABLE outside places when something could not be performed in house. 10/10!
Response: Thank you so much for the review!

Erin Patricia: I feel fortunate that someone of Dr. Cabaniss's caliber--and who understands birds--is only a mile away! She has discovered some things, like high sugar in the urates of one of my parakeets, that other vets missed. Dr. Cabaniss is thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. I never feel rushed in the follow up calls after a drop off. Her team is is helpful, efficient, and courteous about scheduling appointments and getting the doctor's answers to questions they can't answer.
Response: Thank you Erin. It was a pleasure caring for Frankie and Phyllis yesterday and all your budgies over the years.

Stephane Carnot: i have been going to Collins Hospital for the last 10 years as they are near my house. every time you leave them a message even for an emergency they do not call back. I call them last week because one of my dogs was having a huge growth on is face that was painful that appeared in the last 2 days. it was a teeth infection. luckily there is Friendship hospital that helped me and my dog out.
Response: I am sorry about your experience. I would like to assure you that we always call back clients who leave messages. Sadly sometimes messages are just dead air or total silence. Not sure why that happens but it does, daily. I believe your voice mail was one of those. Again, I am sorry you had a bad experience but grateful that FHA was able to care for your pet in a timely fashion.

Christine Giglio: Thank you Dr. Jay and staff for taking care of our new pup! We were able to fly safely and calmly with lil Jib. He slept in my arms during the entire flightWith love, Christie & Brad🐾

Tisha Mondal: My experience here was great. It was my first time going to a vet after adopting my cat Marbles. Dr. Fischer was wonderful and very attentive to Marbles. She took her time to explain things I needed to know & took a lot of care in answering the questions I had. Unfortunately, I had to change to another animal hospital near my house as this place is a bit far. I thought that in cases of emergencies, it perhaps would be better to have a clinic nearby. Collins Animal Hospital is still the best and I wish it were closer.
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. Sorry to see you go but glad you had a good experience with us.

Wendy Wilson: I am so pleased to have found Collins Hospital. I switched over a year ago from my previous vet, because of proximity - one of my cats hates car rides. I have had very good service and have been especially impressed by Drs. F and C. When I lost a cat to illness last year, these women were professional and compassionate, two important qualities in a vet. This morning, one of the staff members managed to squeeze me in for a last minute appointment, after I discovered a sore on one of the cats. Finally, for DC - and in particular - Upper Georgetown, their services are reasonable.

Annaliese Nurnberg: Love that Collins treats exotics, like my pet rabbit. My poor bun had a congested nose and had been sneezing a lot, so I decided to take her in. This was my first visit to Collins, and I was impressed. Dr. LaPorta was very nice and explained everything so clearly. My rabbit usually gets very stressed out when she has to go to the vet, but she seemed far less freaked out than usual. We got the treatment she needed without spending too much time or money!

Carly Whitmer: We had the most fantastic experience with Dr. Cabaniss with our two guinea pigs. She was in no rush, took her time explaining everything and made our two girls feel right at home and comfortable. Her tech, Darcy, was also great and was gentle and comfortable. We highly recommend Collins Animal Hospital. Wish we could give it 6 stars!
Response: Thank you so much for the review. We are glad Noogie and Scruffles had such a nice visit. We look forward to seeing them in the future.

MICHAEL WALLOVER: I own a rabbit. What many would consider a normal pet is actually considered exotic by veterinarians. Finding Collins Hospital was great. Not only do they know how to handle animals, but they explain things very well and have nail clipping appointments. There is no question that I will be heading back to there many more times.

Animal Clinic of Anacostia: what do users think?


Maria Knatt: This is the only place I take my pets. The staff is wonderful and many people bring there pets here because of the excellent service and prices are reasonable compared to most clinics. It stays busy but the wait is worth it. The doctor and staff is phenomenal !!

Mallory Uzel: Two days before Christmas, while visiting from out of town, my dog tweaked his leg and was quite uncomfortable. The receptionist here was so kind on the phone and let us know they closed early that day but could fit us in if we were able to get over there quickly. I had called 15 other clinics who were all booked out even for emergencies (understandably, with the pandemic and staffing issues all places are experiencing) so I was already so appreciative they were able to see my poor ouchy old man! The lovely, kind ladies at the animal clinic of Anacostia were able to fit my pup in quickly after arrival, do a quick exam to confirm nothing was majorly wrong, get meds on board, and they were so sweet to me, his worried mom throughout! Their prices were also extremely reasonable, and I witnessed them provide the same kind care and attention to another gentleman in the lobby with an ill dog as we were on our way out (the staff was staying late to make sure that pup was cared for). So many thanks to Dr Ashley and the rest of the ladies, and I can’t recommend their kind care enough!

Sherita Brandon: When I first got Rockie, he was 6 months and full of life! He wanted to know everything! The only thing he didn't like was getting his nails clipped. The lady clipped one down too short and it bled so as he was crying, I was too. We finished and he's good. Still hates getting them clipped, but he knows he has to. In fact, we're going tomorrow morning ❤️ I love this clinic. Nice service, clean, very pet friendly and convenient to and from my home. Anaconda Animal Clinic will ALWAYS be our home for pet care. Thank you Dr. Ashley & your team! Y'all Rock!!

Jovan Perry: The staff is very friendly and compassionate towards the animals. As well the prices are very reasonable. I really enjoy the care that my animals receive when I take them their!!

Sunyetta Thornton: Dr Ashley office is the best with working with animals and taking care of her pets thank you for being such a caring and loving animal vet I have been coming to you for years getting my dogs treated and the pricing is not bad ☺️

Angela Baker-Fonville: The doctor is so good with Max we have been going there for 10 yrs and I would not change a thing. She is a great Veterinarian

Elaine Taylor: I would give 10 stars if I could! Animal Clinic of Anacostia is phenomenal. It was the overall experience for me. I don't care about my time in this circumstance, I care about the quality of care that my pup receives. Dr. Ashley and her team are stealthy, kind, supportive and informative. All other vets in the DC metro area have been doing dog only vet check ups, meaning, I wait outside while my pup goes in without my support and guidance. With that, my pup boy suffers from anxiety and Dr. Ashley, today not only instilled confidence in me, but in my pup also to get our vaccinations completed safely! I felt confident and comforted by our overall experience today, and we will absolutely be coming back. Thank you Animal Clinic of Anacostia!

Sarah Tilahun: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value5 stars all the way. I started taking my pet to them as soon as we got him at 2 1/2 months. They have ALWAYS been professional, courteous, & reliable. They give great resources and are willing to answer all the questions of a new pet owner. Their prices are way more than fair. As long as you get there early you will be seen.

Turquoise Afro: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueDr. Ashley is wonderful. This is the best animal clinic in DC. Very ethical, compassionate with intuitive advice based on decades of experience not motivated to make a quick buck by recommending risky procedures for the bottom line. A breath of fresh air. 10 stars.

Tina Graham: Dr.Ashley is the best! She treats my fur babies great each visit! Prices are great..:)

CityPaws Animal Hospital: what do users think?


Gabrielle: I used to really enjoy taking my pets to CityPaws but the management has gone downhill lately. The vet we most recently saw spent under 10 minutes with my dog and clearly wanted to leave as soon as possible. When we asked about vaccines we were told there wasn't time and to come in for a quick appointment in the future. When we brought her back in the vet again spent less than 5 minutes, suggested an x-ray for 24 hours of diarrhea (which we declined) and charged us over $300 including another examination cost without any transparency. After discussing how we were led on to believe this would not be the case, CityPaws did nothing except charge our card multiple times as soon as possible. I would recommend going to Friendship or any other facility to take care of your animals.
Response: Thank-you Gabrielle for the 5 stars.

Zachary Denney: Positive: Professionalismwhen I arrived today they were able to squeeze me in for my puppy that was having breathing issues. They were very nice and made me feel at ease. My puppy is much better but I appreciate them helping her at the last minute
Response: Zachary, Thank you so much for the kind review. So glad to hear that we were able to help!

Olga F: I haven’t been here yet because when I called in the front desk manager immediately cut me off as I was trying to explain my issue and said “have YOU ever been here before?” When I said no, she said the wait was 4-6 weeks. I said that unfortunately I couldn’t wait that long and started to say that I’ll check with other places to which she responded “well that’s the wait for everybody!” I think City Paws can benefit from some nicer staff.
Response: Hello Olga, We are disappointed to read of your review. Would you please call us at 202-232-7297 and ask to speak to the practice manager. Best, CityPaws

David M: Doctors are amazing. Support staff leaves a little to be desired. On my last visit, the assistant said she was pregnant and couldn’t pick up my (petite 10 pound dog) so she decided she would drag my already scared baby across the lobby down the hall. When I brought it to the attention of the front desk nurse, she argued with me rather than apologize.
Response: David, We are disappointed to read of your review. Please know this is not the standards we expect of our staff. We will have someone reach out to you today to learn more. Best to you, CityPaws

Cierra Piggott: I do not usually write reviews but the outstanding service my dog received today deserves recognition! She got to a small chicken bone outside and although I got most of it out of her mouth, she was acting uncomfortable and like she still had something stuck in the back of her throat. I first called Friendship emergency vet and they said they had a 1-3 hour wait (plus it is a 20 minute drive). I was about to leave but my husband called City Paws and told them the situation. They said bring her right in. I got there abt 10 minutes later and the staff was waiting outside the front door to meet us. They took my dog back immediately for the doctor to examine her, while I gave check-in info as we had never been there before. They called me back to speak to the doctor 5 minutes later. The vet was extremely smart and friendly. Overall the service blew me away. Everyone from start to finish was so nice and made me feel at ease. My dog perked up significantly and was back to her normal self before we left. I was back home in way less than 1 hour from when she even ate the bone. Thank you!!
Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so pleased we were able to be there for you all. Best, Stephanie

Aerica Shimizu Banks: I’ve been a longtime client, since 2016 but this will likely be the last time I go out of my way to take my dog here. I scheduled an appointment a week out for time sensitive issues and got on the cancellation list. Was told there were several cancellations today, and rearranged my schedule to drive across town from deep in Southeast to make it. Rush hour starts at 3pm now apparently so hit a ton of traffic but still make it right at the advertised grace period of 15min . Call to check in and am placed on hold for 15 total minutes as we wait outside just to be told to reschedule and that the grace period has changed to 10min. Was I ever notified of this change? No. I received no call to confirm or check in if I was running late. Even the signage at the front desk says 15min grace period. So, two hour roundtrip for nothing. I thought the higher prices were worth paying for the appointment availability and attentiveness but those qualities no longer exist. Not to mention previous requests for medical records were ignored. Infuriating waste of time.
Response: Hi Aerica, We are disappointed to read of your experience. Would you mind giving us a call so that we may learn more.

Murray Penner: I highly recommend CityPaws. Their staff are helpful and professional, and their doctors are compassionate, kind, and knowledgeable. The only negative experience I ever had was having to wait a fairly long time for a nail trim for my cat but it was during COVID and because if a staff shortage so it’s understandable. It’s a quality and well-planned practice that I have complete confidence in. I especially appreciate Courtney up front who is always helpful and efficient.
Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. We will share with our team!

Weller Van Nostrand: The staff is awful specially the receptionists... I think they're not happy with their jobs. My advice to them look for another job! They say is their policy and I believe that this is the true considering that I read before about they only caring about the money. They don't care about your pets. I am going there for a while and always get disappointed with something new. They cannot follow your pet’s history and always do something wrong. The last one for us was the wrong rabies shot they gave to one of our dogs. By the way if you need to take your dog there for an emergency remember that they only take you in if your dog is having a stroke and they’re still gonna charge you the price for an emergency. So good luck for you that decide to take your dog to their care.
Response: Hello Weller, We are deeply disappointed to read of your experience. May we reach out to you to learn more? Best, Stephanie

J sam: They are very professional and friendly. The veterinarian very willing to answer all the concerns regarding the health of our baby. Thank you city pawn. With affection Sophia the husky❤

samantha baker: I've had mostly good experiences bringing my dog here for the past three years in DC. With that being said, when my dog was attacked and I needed someone to look at him immediately the front desk told me they would not see him because they "don't take emergencies" and suggested I go to a Virginia pet hospital. I'm not sure how this is a good solution for those who don't have vehicles, have been a client for years and live one block away. City Paws is great for routine pet needs but when you actually need them they extremely unhelpful.
Response: Hello Samantha, we are disappointed to read of your review. We hope your kiddo is doing well. May we reach out to you to learn more of the call. I am unable to locate your name in our system can you let me know your pets name and the name associated with your account. Best, Stephanie

Palisades Veterinary Clinic: what do users think?


Tabitha Asher: This clinic’s customer care and service has unfortunately declined as the years continue. I attempted to call and see if there was any prescription food in stock I could stop by and grab as I have done this before and would not receive my online order in time. I am leaving town tonight and will not have enough food for the next 2 days to leave for my cats. First I was told that they do not have the food but that I could order online but would need to get an exam as my cats are less than 1 week past due for their annual exam. I explained that this was never explained to me before that an exam is required for the food, but I don’t have a problem bringing them I just cannot today as I am leaving town and really need food for them so they don’t go hungry. The girl interrupted me as I tried to explain this to her saying it doesn’t matter because I need an exam. Complete lack of compassion or empathy for my situation. Less than 1 week past due should not keep me from getting the food they have been eating for the past year. Additionally, I asked for my cats records as I would be terminating our relationship and for a refund of a fecal sample that was not “good” at their last exam. I said that I would at their next appointment. But since I will not be going back I have asked for a refund and one has not been rendered. My records were sent but with no apology or acknowledgment of any sort. Yes, I should have planned better, but you made me feel helpless today and it clearly came across you did not care about the situation I was in or that my cats would not have food. And to top it all off, the food I had ordered online, they made sure to decline it! And again, not communication or acknowledgment . I am a professional myself where I care for human patients. This is not how you treat people who pay you a high price for you services.

Bradley Fager: My family has been a loyal customers for decades with multiple pets. Unfortunately, this clinic has not been able to handle the pandemic rush in pet ownership well. Their care for existing patients has declined. When I myself got a new puppy, they weren't able to give him boosters in time. It wouldn't make sense for me to go to two different vets, so I changed vets for my older, 9 year old dog. They have also started charging extra for more urgent care that they didn't used to do. It's a shame they can't handle growth well...an opportunity squandered. Avoid unless you want to be treated as expendable and have to wait forever to get an appointment.

Jeff H: I've been going to this vet for over 30 years. This past year made me switch vets asap. Here's what did it for me: - They will give you medicine that is the same but different cost and quantity. For example, I used to get 150 days of meds for $168.00, then they just gave me 50 days worth of meds for $123.50. That's $370.50 for the same amount of days. Just 2.21 times the cost. I was not informed of this change nor the difference in cost. If it is backordered and this is a temporary solution, fine, but you have to tell me! Tell me that I'm receiving one third the amount of meds for over double the cost. One hilarious meds incident was when I called to get some prescriptions filled from the cardiologist they recommended, the woman on the phone said "they don't prescribe medication". Hmmm, then how have I been getting medication from you for the last two years? Seems odd, especially since I was holding a bottle of meds with "Palisades Veterinary Clinic" on the label. I had to convince her that their clinic prescribes medication. I hung up, called back, got someone different, no issues. So, again, the staff is terrible. - My dog was bleeding out her butt one morning. I called them the minute they opened. All their "emergency appointments" were full that day. What? My dog has blood coming out her butt and you will not see her right away? Nope. I could try the next day to see if any "emergency appointments" become available. This happened twice on two separate occasions for different reasons but I'd think blood coming out the butt would be enough of a reason to make some time to at least see my dog for 5 mins. - Does your dog need to get a sterile urine sample? They will give you a pee catcher for $70 to try to catch you dog's pee. Even if you're successful, it will likely be contaminated and you'll have to come in for a sterile sample using a needle anyway. They will constantly find ways to upcharge you. - If a bridge unexpectedly closes and you might be 5 mins late, they make you reschedule your appt that you've had for months. Even if you call to let them know, which is how I found out. Or you can pay a $160 penalty for being a few mins late. But when you take time off work for your 2:30 appt and are standing outside at 2:25, they will let you in at 2:50 if you're lucky, but you don't get $160 from them for wasting your time. Great veterinarians, terrible service, unnecessarily expensive, will upcharge you, horrible staff, and cannot be relied upon for an emergency. Edit: Somehow my review was removed so I'm posting it again. Looking forward to the owners embarrassing and unprofessional response.
Response: We made the medication issue right after management spoke to you on the phone, multiple times. Management personally oversaw the ordering, and shipping of this medication to make up for the initial issue. As for our lateness policy, we have never turned a client away for being 5 minutes late. We typically call clients when they are 5 minutes late, and ask them their approximate arrival time. If they are going to be more than 10 to 15 minutes late, we asked clients to either reschedule or wait to be seen when a doctor is free. Medicine is not an exact science. To predict the exact ending point to each appointment is impossible. Clients in both human and veterinary often have to wait past their appointment's start time for a doctor to begin their examination. I am sorry your pet had an urgent medical problem. Unfortunately, we can't service every client/patient when these situations arise. That is why there are multiple urgent care and emergency facilities in the area. As for your other complaints, it seems like a smaller clinic would better service your needs. I wish you luck in your future endeavors. Thank you for your many years of care we were able to provide your pets.

A P: DO NOT RECOMMEND. My dog had been seen here several times before unexpectedly becoming sick overnight. I called the clinic the next morning, and they scheduled an appointment. I was asked to bring a stool sample, which caused us to be 15 minutes late because it took my dog an abnormal amount of time to go (because she was sick, as I explained over the phone). I called ahead to let the clinic know that I would be late and was told that I would be charged a fee (amounting to $160) because we were late. At that point, I had a choice between my very sick pet not being seen or paying the fee, so I agreed. I waited an hour for the techs to come get my pet and another hour after that for her to be seen. $700 and several tests later, I took my dog home where she continued to get sick for the next several days. I eventually took her to urgent care (I refused to bring her back to Palisades) where the vet diagnosed her with a simple case of Kennel Cough, for which they prescribed an over-the-counter medication totaling $5. The full urgent care visit totaled $200, significantly less than going to Palisades. After my experience, I came here to read the reviews. I agree with several other reviewers that this vet is WAY more expensive than other options throughout the city. They also seem to add on unnecessary services/charges to drive-up the bill, without informing you of the cost first. If you don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on minor issues, I would NOT recommend. The schedulers/tech staff also seemed very dismissive. I would expect a vet that charges so much to have top-notch customer service. Experienced owners may have better experiences.

Melinda Roth: THE WORST!!!!! RUN from this practice which, when you need them the most, will be so overbooked that they cannot squeeze your beloved pet in...My two small dogs were injured at a dog sitter's house yesterday when a big dog got in a fight. I arrived in town late last night and scooped them up and called OUR VET for several years -- Palisades first thing this morning because I knew they needed to be seen -- especially since we are driving to Iowa tomorrow morning for the college baseball national championship (I certainly cannot fly and leave them with the dog sitter). I waited all day, calling several times and at 430 pm was told the Doctors are all leaving at 5 and I should just take them to an emergency room (where there is a 3-4 hour wait and it will be several hundred dollars more). This is NOT how a practice should be managed and how patients should be treated. Not to mention they are beyond expensive, and way more than other practices. Do your pet a favor, and find a practice that cares more about your pets than the money. ************And of course Palisades Vet responds to say they are very busy and they prefer not to refer people elsewhere, but kept me hoping all day long...never got back to me, told me that if only I would have spoken to the right person, they could have found a way...I was just not VIP enough, let's face it. You do NOT turn away HURT dogs in PAIN needing medical attention who are YOUR patients. You find a way. Every medical office has ways of squeezing people in they want to keep as patients. They just don't care because there are more suckers who will pay $20 more per exam than the going rate and when their pets need immediate medical attention, they will tell you to go elsewhere...guess what? I am never coming back and I hope this review reaches as many people as possible so that potential (or even current) customers choose another practice that will be there for them, the way your practice just simply was not...
Response: Unfortunately due to the increased demand for veterinary services in the DC region, our daily fill rate often reaches 100% or beyond. We have made adjusments to our scheudle to provide services for those who need day of care, while limiting the number of new clients/patients and those who do not live in the Palisades neighborhood. Even after these conssions, we are often forced to refer patients to seek alternative care. This is not our preference, but sometimes necessary for us to continue to provide quality patient care. This is a tough decision determined based on patient load and available staffing. Every member of our staff cares deeply for our patients. The only reason to enter this field is due to our love for animals and need to assist them. I hope you were able to witness this over the years in which you trusted our staff with your pets. I wish you good luck in your future endeavors, and know that we will be here if you choose to utilize our services again.

Susan Miller: I took my dog here a few weeks ago. Not only was my appointment late, but the guy (with green hair) had a slight attitude when picking up my dog. They ask you to purchase expensive medications that seem excessive and unnecessary. The hospital just doesn't seem too organized in my opinion. My dog was happy when i got him back so that earned a star. I'd recommend improving customer relations. Especially if you'd like to establish a solid customer base.
Response: I am sorry you were not fully satisfied with service received. I can assure you that our veterinarians do not prescribe medication or preventatives that are unnecessary for you let's health or wellness/preventative care. I would be happy to review your medical recordsto provide better understanding of our recommendations. Thank you for visiting our clinic.

Lindsay Ancellotti: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueI've had poor vet experiences in the DMV, and it was such a relief to be treated so well at Palisades! The customer service was amazing and made me feel at ease about anything going on with my dog. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you for the positive review. We are so happy to hear that you had a great experience at our clinic. Our staff loved meeting you and Poppy, and can't wait to see you both again.

Susie O'Mara: Positive: Professionalism, QualityI took my mom's miniature poodle there for grooming. Derrick found she had mats and we agreed she needed to have a pretty close shave, not the puppy cut we were planning. She looks absolutely ADORABLE! He did a fabulous job and the staff were all thorough and professional.
Response: Thank you for the great review. We are very happy that you were pleased with Derek's work. Hopefully we will see you again soon.

Laura Carey: We have come here for several years for our cat as it is very convenient. Also, the groomer is fantastic! Our cat recently got a wonderful lion cut which really helps keep him clean (and apparently our cat was totally happy during the process and didn’t require sedation)!
Response: Thank you for the positive review. We are very glad to hear that you are happy with our Groomer. We will be sure to pass review on to him and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Jessica: I brought my longhaired cat here for his first grooming because I was pleased with how they trimmed his nails at his last vet appointment, and I generally was very happy with the experience. I asked them to trim the fur around his face. The groomer shaved through half of his whiskers so they're only about 1-1.5 inches long on one side. (I also asked for the fur between his paws to be trimmed down, but they missed the back paws.) I'm frustrated because I felt safe bringing him here for grooming services since it's a vet that I trust. If you can't have your pet safely groomed at a vet then where can you go? If it were just a cosmetic issue I wouldn't bother leaving a review, but this is not okay for cats, and I expect a veterinary clinic to know that.
Response: I am very sorry that you did not receive the service that you were expecting based on previous visits. I will speak with our grooming team and discuss these concerns to try and minimize this from happening again. I am happy that you trust our veterinary staff and hope to see you again. Feel free to reach out to any member of our management team if you would like to discuss this matter further

District Veterinary Hospital Eastern Market: what do users think?


Nia Spencer: Our dog Lacey has been a patient at District Vet for two+ years and we are huge fans of the practice. Dr. Evans is fantastic - she's highly knowledgeable, caring, responsive and a great listener. The staff of the practice is also wonderful. Professional, kind, prompt, warm, efficient...I cannot say enough good things about District Vet. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you! We appreciate the love right back. And of course give our best belly rubs to Lacey.

Chris Atkins: They were great! My dog had an excellent experience and he was really well taken care of. If your pet ever needs care make an appointment here. One of the best vets in Capitol Hill

Christel Schmidt: My dog Hartley overcame his fear of the vet office with the help of our favorite tech Auntie Dev. Now Hartley loves to go visit there even when he doesn’t have an appointment. She even has him acting brave for shots & exams. It’s a real love story!

Kelly Ryan: If I could give more stars, I would. Dr. Evans and crew are amazing. We started taking our French Bulldog puppy here as soon as he came home and have been nothing short of amazed at the quality care, support, and customer service. It’s easy to book an appointment, they communicate clearly before each visit, and follow up to check in on our pup afterwards. Most importantly, they are so very supportive, understanding, and offer great advice. Really impressed at every level!
Response: Hi Kelly! Thank you for the kind words and support! The crew works hard every day to provide the best care and service. I will share your warmth with everyone in our morning meeting tomorrow. Many thanks for the love.

Haley: I must say that I really appreciate this practice. The staff at District Vet Eastern Market have helped me keep my beloved pitbull happy and healthy, despite his chronic skin issues. Dr. Evans especially has been the primary care provider for my pup, and she has gone above and beyond. I trust them. They rock. 100% recommend.
Response: Thank you for the kind words and support! Dr. Evans is AWESOME. Many belly rubs.

Julia B: I can't recommend this practice enough for the great experience we've had with the vets, the techs, and the administrative staff. I have a lot of anxiety about taking my pup to the vet because he is highly reactive to dogs and people. The staff here has always been patient and understanding, and help to calm his (and my) nerves. They don't make us feel like a burden which we have definitely felt at other practices in the past. We see Dr. Teich who is awesome at making us feel comfortable and I trust his opinions and treatments. I think he really enjoys treating dogs like mine who have quirks and may be considered difficult. We have also seen Dr. Evans about a number of issues and she has been amazing at helping us work on diabetes complications and is very responsive to my concerns. My pup has fallen in love with some of the vet techs, namely Devon who has put in so much time and attention to make my dog comfortable that he is actually excited to see her whenever she is working and she even dogsits him sometimes. That doesn't happen with him! If you have a dog with issues like mine, she is an awesome tech who I trust with my dog.

Malinda Harrell: Really fantastic experience - Dr. Evans solved the problem with my dog that my previous vet missed, and I'm so grateful. Everyone is very communicative and it feels like they all genuinely care about your animal. I'm so happy to have found them.

Lesley Turner: I've taken my elderly dog to District Veterinary Hospital twice for ongoing health issues and was really impressed and touched by the kindness of everyone I interacted with. My dog has ongoing health issues (pancreatitis) and I really appreciate the option of urgent care appointments as an alternative to using an emergency center where the wait to be seen can be in the hours. I will definitely be back for routine appointments as well!

Alethea Swift: [EDITED 6/27] This practice was recommended to me by a friend when I moved back to DC. I made an initial appointment so that my dog Arlo would be considered a patient, and I loved the practice at that appointment -- the vet was very knowledgeable and helpful, and the staff was lovely. I've since been back with my cat and had a similar experience. I recently had a very concerning interaction with staff at the front desk. Long story short, when I expressed concern that my dog might have an urgent and potentially deadly condition, she scheduled me for an appointment four days away and told me there was no reason to worry -- all without consulting a vet or vet tech. Because I knew enough to raise questions, I soon received a call back telling me that there was indeed cause for concern and I should take my dog to the emergency vet ASAP. I found that interaction alarming, but was heartened by the clinic's response. I emailed the front desk to make them aware of the interaction, and within hours they had removed that employee and taken steps to make sure that kind of miscommunication never happens again. It's very clear they care about animals and their safety, and that went a long way toward restoring trust.

Alexandra Champion: Our pets have been patients of District Vets for years and we are so happy with the care our dogs have received there. It had been a few years since we lost our last dog and since we had been into the office. (Dr. Teich and Dr. Evans were amazing through that very difficult time). We recently adopted a 2 year old pointer and brought him in for his first check up. We were so pleased to find that the practice is as awesome as ever. Dr. Evans, Chantelle, and the entire team were so sweet and thorough throughout our pup’s appointment, patiently showed us how to administer ear medication (Chantelle works magic), promptly returned test results, and even reached out a few days later to check in to see how our pup was doing. It is extremely evident that everyone at the practice is not only very knowledgeable, but also truly cares about their patients. We are so grateful for everything they do!

Dupont Veterinary Clinic: what do users think?


Marcela Pineda: If I could give 0 stars, I would. My WORST NIGHTMARE! Back in 2020, on a 6th or July, we came with our HEALTHY, HAPPY AND LOVED Yorkshire Terrier- (Cocky) because he had been “acting weird” for the past few hours… he had vomited the night before and was coughing which never happened to him and so we decided to bring him in. As covid was going strong, we were not allowed to go in with him, Dr. MAVERICH took him in, he said his coughing was due to “stomach issues” “nothing to worry about” my sister and I insisted that he double checked as it wasn’t a regular occurrence for him however, again “nothing to worry about” prescribed him some cerenia “for his vomit” and painkillers. However, little did we know that this misdiagnosis and malpractice from this place would lead us to say goodbye to our best friend forever. Hours later, we called because he didn’t seem to get better, same response…We decided to go to the ER at another hospital and they did an RX and found out he had aspiration pneumonia (fluids in his lungs) which they said was obvious by the symptoms described, he was left there in a incubator for hours trying to reverse all the time we had lost from visiting Dupont Veterinary Clinic. It wasn’t possible. absolutely veterinary negligence/malpractice. It went against standard of care, as they didn’t care enough to throughly rule out anything other than guessing “stomach issues” and now my dog is DEAD. Took me two years to be able to write a review, as I am still mourning his death and feel shame for trusting this place and not trusting my gut feeling when I knew something other than what was diagnosed was going on. A tragedy and every pet parent’s WORST nightmare. No one deserves this pain, trusting professionals to MURDER one’s loved pet, not to mention the psychological distress caused on us. Will NEVER EVER recommend Dupont Veterinary Clinic to Anyone.
Response: We are very sorry for the traumatic experience you and family went through. No one should have to go through that. Unfortunately, recommended diagnostics were declined, which would have provided our staff with important information. This inhibits our ability to create a full treatment plan. In our field, the more information we received, the better we can treat our patients. I am not passing any fault on to you. Clients deny aspects of our treatments plans often. But to say that we didn't care or try is something we cannot stand for.

kristi viies: I have been taking my cat and dog there and the veterinarians have been nice, and the staff as well, until recently. Due to the pandemic and all the new puppies they are probably swamped, so I haven’t been able to get an appointment and have been going to Friendship Animal Hospital and VCA SouthPaws. I did, however, take my pup there this morning for wellness exam. I was late, walked in and apologized and said I had an appointment. The woman at the front desk said if you are 15 minutes late, you will have to reschedule. No good morning, no nothing. I looked at the time, it was barely 10 minutes. 7:38/39 instead of 7:30. I could have been the first customer. She left and meanwhile another member of staff walked in, very friendly (5 stars for her), said hello to my dog and checked me in. The first woman returned and said the exam fee is 75, but I would have to pay $150. Or that I can reschedule. I understand, rules are rules. Just be a bit nicer about it? Like sorry but I’m afraid you have to reschedule? However, it is safe to say she was rude. Bedside manners are important. I would expect a veterinarian office (a place full of cute cats and dogs) to have friendly people. I understand, clients can be difficult as well, but so often I see the opposite. So I’m going to a different vet now.

Sean J. Kent: PROFITEER WARNING for most pet owners, man's best friend is another member of the family and deserves the best care, but you need to be alert to profiteers, some of the veterinarians at this place are out to make an extra buck, they pad the bill with unnecessary tests and procedures. Speaking from experience, I suggest you approach this otherwise excellent veterinary clinic with caution -- never hurts to question your doctor so why not your dog or cat's.
Response: We are sorry to hear that you feel this way. Our veterinarians practice top notch medicine, but are also great at giving realistic options for treatment plans that meet a person's stated budget. We are happy to give cost estimates and strive to spend as much time as necessary to answer any questions that clients may have. Most importantly, the veterinarians and staff love animals and treat our patients like they treat their own beloved pets. It is not the first time a reviewer has felt that our costs are high; however, most people understand the cost of retaining high quality staff while practicing high-quality medicine in the heart of Washington, D.C. Trying to scare away clients by publicly labeling our practice with "PROFITEER WARNING" (while not giving any facts to back up the claim or privately reaching out to address your concerns) is unfair and does not take into consideration that the doctors and staff of this business have dedicated their lives to helping animals in need. Although we have never claimed to be a non-profit business, no one gets into the veterinary industry to get rich. If you would like to discuss this further we would be happy to speak with you over the phone or in person." Thank you.

Kayla Cross: Today I was walking my dog and he started pulling on his leash. I was confused before I realized we were across the street from Dupont Circle Veterinary Clinic. My pup loves the people at the clinic so much he WANTS to go to the vet! It shows how well the staff takes care of him. As for quality of care, he’s gone here since he was 9 weeks old - they got him fully vaccinated on schedule during a very busy time and have taken in him for same day appointments when I have concerns. The clinic also did his neutering procedure and he healed quickly with no complications. He primarily sees Dr. Jones, who is extremely knowledgeable and thoroughly answers all my questions. I hope the clinic continues to expand their use of apps like VitusVet and online based appointment/contact systems. All in all, five star experience!
Response: Thank you for the positive review. Our staff really appreciates it. We are very happy that we have been able to provide Oscar with high quality medical care and for yourself excellent customer service. We look forward to seeing you and Oscar again.

Erin McDevitt: I came to Dupont Vet on a recommendation from a friend and I have been very pleased with the care my cats have received over the last two years. My 15-year old has had quite a few health issues since I adopted him three years ago, and DVC has been very helpful in working with me to figure out what is going on. They also did an excellent job on the neuter and care for my 2 year-old and have always remarked on how well behaved my cats are when they come to visit :) On COVID-19 precautions, while a little frustrating to not be in the room with the vet to point out issues over the past year, I understand the need to set up these procedures and am very glad to be back inside the office to be with my cats, especially now that my senior kitty is experiencing some more serious chronic issues. Pricing....not much to be done there. I've been to other vets in the city and price differences are largely negligible. DVC has always understood the cost aspect of getting prescription medicine and has had no problem writing them for me to take to other pharmacies. We do live in an expensive city and the prices are what I pay for the convenience of having a vet right down the street and with excellent care from their staff. I will continue to bring my cats to DVC because of the great experiences with Dr. Rosen and (more recently) with Dr. Randall. I especially appreciate having more than one vet in practice who can see my cats on short notice -- they've made it very clear they review previous visits notes when discussing treatment options and next steps. One thing I would suggest for DVC is to be more upfront on their estimates for surgical procedures. I trust my vets to do the right thing by my cats and I already brace myself for costs, including those unexpected, but it would be helpful to get a better ballpark of what I'm going to pay.
Response: Thank you for the positive review. Our staff appreciates very much. I will make sure the Dr. Rosen and Randall see this. We look forward to seeing you soon.

c ginther: Dupont Vet clinic was recommended to me several years ago by others with German Shepherds. Never been disappointed, three dogs later. Very courteous and helpful front desk, solid vet techs, and expert treatment. While I typically ask for Dr. Dan Shilito because of his German Shepherd experience, I've had other Doctors and have always been pleased. Treatments are on time, communications via email phone and face to face are always clear and easy to understand, and the staff will recommend a whole host of options for whatever is ailing your pet. My dogs have had exams, vaccines, labs and surgeries with these folks, and never an issue. I am very happy with my vet!
Response: Thank you for the positive review. I am gland our staff is able to provide excellent veterinary care and service for many years. We look forward to seeing your family very soon.

Adrian Palma: The staff and vets are professional, attentive, and genuinely care about your pet. However, do think twice before buying any medication directly from them. A generic drug they just prescribed for my dog cost me $70+ at the DuPont Vet Clinic, while online sources price the same drug and quantity at $20. I support local businesses and understand that local prices will inevitably be higher, but this clinic’s med prices should not be 3.5x higher than other pharmacies. Again, this is a great place to get care for your pet, but please do your research on medicine costs before handing over your credit card to the receptionist.

Doug Deming: Franc has made a complete recovery and is back to her loving, playful activities. Dr. Blalock was professional, knowledgeable, kind, and courteous to Franc and us. She is a rare doctor which has all of those attributes. Furthermore, the entire staff was friendly and helpful during our visit.
Response: Thank you for the positive review. We are so happy that Franc is doing well and that you were happy with the care our entire staff provided. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Taylor lewis: Critical: QualityVery disappointed in the level of care from DuPont vet. We have a very anxious rescue, and I would have expected staff to be more kind and not label her as "bad" as I expect more from animal caregivers. We will not return, and would not recommend if you want to feel you can trust your vet to take kind care of your pet.

Kwame Joseph Licensed Realtor: Terrible and rude customer service. Whomever I spoke to have an insulting habit of talking down to you. I cannot and will never recommend this place. The sad thing I used to live down the street from them and I went there out of convenience. How we I cannot recommend becusee they do not know how to talk to their customers!
Response: I am sorry that you had a poor experience. Unfortunately we are not able to provide any goods to patients who have not had a examination with a veterinarian in the last year, or who have overdue diagnostics. This was the case here. Administering preventatives to a patient with overdue diagnostics can be harmful, causing adverse reactions.

District Veterinary Hospital Brookland: what do users think?


Olga F: I come here a lot and the staff and the doctors are really nice and take good care of my cat. Where they can improve is their organizational skills. I sometimes come in and no one notifies the vet techs that I’ve arrived after I check in. Sometimes no one responds to my emails. Sometimes multiple people respond to my same email. Other than that I am very happy.

HM Bush: They are probably one of the better vet offices in DC. I use to see Dr. Walker with my first dog (my dog passed away some years ago) and my experience was amazing. I now have a dog and cats and no Dr. Walker. I will say the prices seem to have gone up a little and service down a little. There seem to be more services/costs added on, to the point where I’ve spent an extra $100 - $200 on who knows. I hate to complain about prices because their service is still better than other offices that cost the same/more and the vets are nice. Front desk staff are always great! I’ve visited so many other vet offices (due to having an elderly dog with issues) in DC with my first dog, and this is the only place I’ve been happy with.

dani ro: They are simply the best. They are friendly and pet lovers with amazing follow up an spirit to help. We are moving from DC to Hong Kong (which has one of the worlds most strict rules for pets) and they helped us during the whole process.. from buying a microchip they don’t manage (ordering one just for us) to hundreds of certificates. Can’t thank enough y the whole team. Highly recommend them

Samantha Mara: Dr. Tripp, his vet tech, and the front desk staff were all wonderful, helpful, and answered all my questions as a nervous dog mom. Contact with the office prior to the appointment was also easy and straightforward. Would recommend to all my pet parent friends!

Anna Elizabeth: I used to love this location. Dr. Dan talked to my dog more than he talked to me and I was so happy about that. The last two times I’ve gone they make it really challenging to get meds from anywhere else. Their prices for meds are 10x what’s available on the market, so I’m sure they make a huge profit. If you don’t buy the Rx from them they are VERY reluctant to approve it anywhere else, which is really unethical in my opinion. And it ultimately harms the animals as we can’t all afford the $10/pill prices they charge.
Response: Hi - Can you send me a quick note through the front desk email? I'd like to see where the hiccups occurred with you. Phone confirmations to pharmacies, especially several big chain pharmacies, have given us serious problems with the pharmacists filling prescriptions wrong! We do like to use written prescriptions to help prevent this problem. We really try to not make it difficult. Drop me a note and let's discus and we can see how we can make it easier for you. dt,dvm

Gregg Moreland: District Veterinary has been with me, first with my aging shipoo several years ago when I moved to DC, and with my Shih Tzu puppy now. They helped with end of life activies and new puppy wellness (during a pandemic). I recommend District Veterinary Hospital to everyone who asks.

Colin Bill: Love this vet and highly recommend! Anastasia has been so kind and patient with me and my husky 🦊. Thanks Anastasia! 💖

Denise Jones: Jiggy, my dog had to be euthanized yesterday. He loved going there. He was very ill and treated like a king. I love how they made his last day beautiful. My thanks for all they do!

Delaney Ross: I've been taking my dogs to District Vet for two years, and they have 100% earned their five-star status. They have a practice full of friendly, no-nonsense vets who have always given our two dogs (who have had a variety of issues, from recurring bacterial infections to inexplicable allergies) the best care. They are not alarmist but are very practical and do what needs to be done. All of the vets have been wonderful, but Dr. Hassell has left a particular impression on our family for his wealth of knowledge and willingness to go into detail for me. I've also never felt like I'm asking too many questions (which I definitely always am). They usually have appointments available fairly quickly, especially with the Eastern Market practice now open too, so you should never need to go to the emergency vet. The front-office staff is also very helpful, which is the first time I've ever experienced that at a vet. For example, I just called to get my younger dog's rabies certificate, and it was in my email inbox before I even hung up the phone after a 10-second call. I recommend District Vet to all my friends whenever they get pets or are looking to switch. I've had a number of bad experiences with other DC vets and not a single one with District Vet. They really are the best.

Inga A: The staff will go above and beyond to make things right for your furry friends! Dr. Jacobson is amazing!

Atlasvet: what do users think?


MJ Kass: They’re super friendly here. My cats were well cared for. There was no pressure for my cats to do what the vet told them. One of my kitties (pictured) is very shy and was coaxed with delicious treats that she definitely appreciated. The techs didn’t even pick them up unless I was okay with it. I can tell they want my animals to live long

Loana Caballero: We absolutely LOVE AtlasVet. The very first time I visited, the front desk greeted us with excitement. Since then, I have visited the office multiple times and the treatment has remained consistent, especially from Zain! He is always going the extra mile to ensure the check in and check out process is done efficiently and stress free. Dr. Zaritsky performed a dental surgery for my 13 year old dog, who was suffering from severe dental disease and the results were better than I hoped for! Their wonderful Tech Manager, Traycie, followed up with me every step of his post surgery and made Caramelo’s recovery a priority. It has been about a month since the surgery and he is now eating kibble again, even with his gummy smile! Dr. White saw my one year old labrador retriever who we rescued from Puerto Rico and is terrified of strangers. She walked in the room and immediately made a connection with him. She even sat on the floor with him the entire time to be at his level and make him feel comfortable! A doctor…sitting on the floor…the entire time… to make her patient feel comfortable, need I say more? She was PHENOMENAL in calming his anxiety and now he wants to go to AtlasVet even when it is just to drop off his older smaller brother. All thanks to Dr. White! Thank you to the entire team at AtlasVet, especially Dr. Miller, Dr. White, Dr. Zaritsky, Traycie, and Zain!

Denise Thomson: We have been going to Atlas for about 4 years with two different dogs. Every doctor and staff member is sweet and caring. They always stay how cute and sweet my pup is which is always nice to here. They have great Covid protocols in place so be prepared.

Alysha Heckman: I have been taking my dog here for about 2 years and have no complaints. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable. They are able to give me most of the medicine I need at the time of appointment. You can tell that they really care about the animals and are very accommodating of e-mail communication so you don’t always need to schedule an appointment. Will always recommend to people.

James Ling: My partner and I recently got adopted by a stray cat. Took him to Atlas, they were friendly, helpful and patient with all our questions. They treated him for ear mites, got him properly vaccinated and neutered him. The staff was great at explaining every procedure and medication and they called me after every visit to follow up and make sure everything was going well.

Rachel Antonia Silverio: Atlas vet is always a helpful, empathetic and informative experience. My dog is particularly taken with Dr. Claire, who always listens very attentively to my concerns and takes the time to ingratiate herself with Voltaire. Feel very lucky to have such a convenient and caring Vet nearby.

C Ark: Overall great Vet! Everyone is helpful and friendly. My only issue is their super strict scheduling. I recommend arriving at least 15min early to find/pay for parking, get to the building, and call to check in before walking in. I was running 5min late when I parked and it took another 5min just to get there and check in. I overheard 3 people tell me that I barely made it on time.

Matthew Thackston: The staff at Atlas Vet are always so nice and understanding! We always have a great experience with them, even though our dog is nervous to go to the vet. They're very patient and it's clear they care about owners and their pets. Would highly recommend.

Calliope Crane: Kloeë Dawg established care there today and the care received was personable, lovely, welcoming, engaging, and taught us a lot. We are so happy to have found our vet in DC! 10 STARS FOR THE ATLAS FAM!!!!

Lehna Thompson: The staff at Atlas Vet are nothing short of AMAZING. As a first time pet owner, I would always have so many questions and concerns about my pet's behavior, but everyone I've spoken to has always been, friendly, attentive, understanding, and comforting. One staff member in particular, Zain, is so kind and sweet to both me and my cat. He truly cares about every person and pet that walks through the door and even gave my cat some of his favorite toy mice! Zain and the two doctors I've seen with my cat, Dr. Sanz and Dr. McCurdy, were wonderful and responsive to both my and my pet's needs. I highly recommend Atlas to anyone looking for a vet in the DMV area!!!

Cheryl Johnson: I am very happy to have come into contact with Indianhead. Not only is it near me but the service and care of my pet was superb. I have a new puppy and the staff obviously love animals but they were very personal and thorough with the information they provided to me. I have a cat which will now also be brought to them for her care. Thank you for doing your job very well

Erica Payne-Santiago: I've been bringing my animals here for 20 years. Best in the business! Tried another Veterinarian and was not ecstatic. Indian Head Animal Hospital has all the latest equipment, 1st in the area to offer Lazer surgery, clean, welcoming, has an app, an online portal, organzied, and responsive. I won't take my furry baby anywhere else.

Tracey: First time going to this animal hospital and was pleasantly surprised. If I were a dog I would want my owner to take me to this hospital. It's very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was a very positive experience for me and my fur baby. Prices are reasonable as well.

T Bridgeman: The doctors at Indian Head Amnimal Hospital are fantastic! They really care about your pets. I have always had a positive experience here. As long as I have pets, my fur babies will always be patients here.

a.l. rodenberg: I started bringing my furry friends here because it was the practice my husband had been using for his four-legged critters. They are friendly and professional. More to the point, they are good. What sold hubs is the fact that, 10 years ago, he got a dire prognosis for our black cat, was told to put him down, went to Indian Head, and Mr. black cat is alive and well, just suffering from kitty asthma. So basically, we are customers until we leave the area entirely.

Delmi Moreno Carbajal: Came multiple time to have my dog check and took multiple x-rays and never found what was wrong with my dog... they were useless, but when I took my dog to Emmavet they immediately were able to diagnose what was wrong with my dog and acted accordingly. Very sad to know Indian Head Animal hospital have poor service towards this amazing animal who are suffering which is why I people take thier animals in the first place and spend so much money for nothing at least on my experience

Monique: I am new to the state and looking for a Vet, while holding to speak with a receptionist I was reading through the reviews seeing negative comments about the workers at the desk. I just spoke with Brianna who was VERY nice, VERY professional and VERY helpful. Yes like all vets they are very booked up and you are unlikely to get a quick appointment but my contact with their desk staff was a positive experience.

Kate Downs: They have been our vet for years. Compassionate and caring as well as knowledgeable, this is absolutely the vet you take your pets to.

Rob Campbell: We get our dog groomed there monthly and this is one of the few places she goes in with no worries and comes out as happy as she went in.

Gerald Wilson: On Friday, April 23, 2021, I took our 7 year old Boxer, "Deuce," to see "Dr. Stacey [Young, DVM]," because he was lethargic, jaundiced and maybe at the end of his life. Our visit began by noticing the extremely professional and safe (COVID-19 sensitive) intake process for dropping Deuce off for treatment. Dr. Stacey called me to discuss her assessment. While the news wasn't good, she was cautiously optimistic and recommended a course of action short of euthanasia to ensure we had given our beloved pet his best opportunity for survival. I could take Deuce back home to our anxious children! Unfortunately, our excitement in bringing him home was dashed that evening when he passed away in his house. It was wonderful that he was able to die peacefully at home. Thanks to Dr. Stacey and Deuce, we had no questions or second thoughts about whether it was his time to go. 'Rest in peace,' Deuce! Thank you, Dr. Stacey for all you and Indian Head Animal Hospital did over his 7 years of life to help him be happy and productive. If we ever introduce another dog into our family, we will be sure to bring him to you for excellent veterinary care! Sincerely, G. Wilson

Union Veterinary Clinic: what do users think?


Bob D.: This is my sweetheart Nilla. I'm 59 years old and and she's the first dog I've had in over 50 years! And yes there have been a lot of great cats before Nilla came, but being with Nilla these last 6 months or so has been one of the best experiences in my life. She's just amazing!
Response: Thank you for your 5-star review! We are so happy to hear about the bond you and Nilla have developed. She certainly is a sweet beautiful girl.

Kelly Leigh Deaton: Every time I take my dog to this vet clinic it’s a great experience. I had a scare last year where he had to undergo numerous tests and the vet called me regularly to update me on what was going on. I highly recommend this clinic. Much better than other clinics I have used in the past. And I never wait to be seen.
Response: Kelly, Thank you for your 5-star review! We are happy that you have had a positive experience with us. We strive to always provide the best care and service for you and your furry family member.

Christine Marie: I have been taking my dog to Union Vet for about 5 years. We have loved our experience. The team at Union Vet is super friendly, informative and helpful. Their exams are thorough and they take the time to answer any question I have. My dog is often very nervous and skittish at the vet but the team does a great job remaining patient and doing everything they can to make him feel safe. I highly recommend Union Vet!

Amanda Clinton: The staff is so kind to my Maizy - always patient and gentle with her. Dr. Appleby is great! He was thorough, never made me feel rushed, explained options and costs for my dog’s treatment and generally has a stellar bedside manner for animals and their humans. He is also very knowledgeable about Rx and specific conditions in my breed of dog. I recommended him to my friends seeking a vet. Thanks to the rest of staff, as well, who helped with the vaccines and payment. Everything went very smoothly.

Monique Hardy: Union Vet has always shown great care and consideration to me and my dogs. The vets have all worked with me to find the best solutions for care of my dogs, with flexibility and options on procedures, and thorough attention to detail. I highly recommend Union Vet. I believe they have the best interest at heart for my pet's health.

Aj Rp: This is the most expensive veterinarian clinic I've ever been to in my entire life, so prepare for good gouging. If there is an opportunity to charge you or up charge you, they will guaranteed. I've been here two or three times and always felt the staff had a bit of an edge to them. However, today was my last visit to this Clinic as the staff was beyond rude to the point where other customers outside shook their head and vocalized their amazement . i attempted to ask a staff member how much longer because I was told 25 minutes and was sitting outside in my car for an hour and 45 minutes. He ignored me totally. After calling a couple of times he came out dropped my dog's leash and medication on the ground and walked inside telling me off as he walked away. If that all was not enough, last thing I will say is I have yet to see a single dog walk out of that clinic that did not look like it was having a panic attack which makes me wonder how well the staff is treating the animals.

Kate Scandura: We have had a fantastic experience with Union Vet. We were going to another vet in the city, but that vet couldn't take us for a spay appointment for several months, so we contacted Union Vet, and they were able to get us in for a pre-surgery exam within two days and for the spay within a week after that. The pricing was also the most reasonable in the area that we could find: $555 for a spay (plus more for the pre-surgery exam and bloodwork and other incidentals, but it seemed like that was pretty standard). We were also really impressed with the vets and their staff. They spent much more time explaining everything to us and giving us our options than our previous vet did, and they were all very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable and competent. The spay went great-- our pup's scar is about as small and neat as you can expect, and she has recovered very quickly. They have also been very available for any questions we have had. I highly recommend Union Vet!
Response: Kate, Thank you for your 5-star review! We are delighted to hear that your puppy had a smooth recovery after her spay. We strive to provide the best service and care possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you and your pup need anything else.

Audra Dykman: I moved from overseas and my dog had not been able to necessarily have the same level of care where I was posted. The team was very understanding, talked me through different tests vs. vaccinations in addition to types of illnesses to watch out for in the DC area and helped answer all of my questions. Can't say much on costs as I'm coming from a place where I had house visits for less than $50. :)

Brooke Sherman: The staff at Union Veterinary is knowledgeable and friendly. I just moved to DC and am very happy I selected them as the vet for my new cat! Overall very positive experience for me and my pet.

Marvin Miller: I just can’t recommend this vet. We brought two cats here and they were siblings. Four years ago, due to liver failure, we put her brother to sleep and they botched it — he was facing away from us and as soon they sedated him, his heart stopped. And we didn’t have a chance to say good bye. This time, her sister was 19 years old and in rapid declining health. She absolutely hated vets so we didn’t bring her in. Would not take pills or even mixed in food. She wasn’t stupid. And because it was some time since we last brought her in, they said they had to do quality of life exam and kept asking me - rudely and coldly - implying we could have done this or that. I was floored. We struggled with the decision but we knew it was time. And the vet made me feel horrible and she did nothing to assure me. Very judgmental. She reluctantly admitted there was a lot of issues with her at end. They went ahead and put her to sleep. To add insult to the injury, I was told it would be $170 on phone. No. The final bill was $420. Just be warned. And I honestly do not know why I returned to this vet again. I will not again.

Capitol Hill Animal Clinic: what do users think?


Jonathan Nicholson: Great experience. Professional staff clearly explained what I needed to do/bring for my cat's visit. The pre-visit form is online and simple and visit fee reasonable. Exam was on time and Dr. Murphy unhurriedly explained the possible diagnoses and potential outlooks. Follow up phone call for test results was similarly clear. All in all, very pleasant experience.

Cassandra Johnson: The vet here is great, and the staff have always been helpful. I completely trust them with my dog. The only negative is that like a lot of other DC vets, it's not always easy to get an appointment and can take several weeks before they have availability.

Andrew Fink: Place was quaint and staff was personable, but not transparent with prices (if they ask you to bring in your pets stool, it's $60 for them to run it). The real issue for me was being told by the vet to go to cvs for cat medicine, paying $70 for 14 pills, then checking online for it and finding 30 pills for $10 from ChewyRx. This cat medicine is also for FHV which is basically the most common cat disease, so not sure why the vet didn't have any or didn't know to recommend we go online for a fair price but some delay or cvs for people pharm insane prices but fast turnaround. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume the vet recommended cvs for the speed since they care about my cat getting better ASAP, but I still think they should mention the price disparity. I don't mind paying whatever price needs paying for my pet's health, but I do mind paying a lot more for no reason that can easily be avoided... 3/5 - just be ready to pay a lot more than you were told/expecting

Austin Graff: When we got a puppy, our friends recommended this vet in a rowhouse along Pennsylvania Avenue. They were right- we love it! The staff are friendly, efficient and our dog loves them!

Regina Jones: I wish I could give some stars but I can't because, I have been trying to get my cat an appointment. Since she's a new patient they only give Tuesday and Thursdays appointment. Which makes it very inconvenient because of my job.

Jennifer: Friendly staff, reasonable prices and wait times are not long. They seem to very carefully schedule appointments to minimze the number of possible pet interactions in the waiting area or hall. Procedures and diagnoses are throughly explained in plain language and estimates for recommended follow-up care are provided. Definitely recommend!

Zeus 93: I love this place! I have been taking my 9 month old puppy here since he was 2 months. They are great with my dog knowing exactly who he is without them calling for us. My dog always comes back happy and so that makes me happy. Great place 👌

Tyrisa Salmond: Been coming here for a few years now. Quality care at an affordable rate.

Deborah witherspoon: Been going here for about 6 years now and I love the care that my dogs get. This year, one dog stopped walking suddenly and Dr. Murphy knew exactly what was wrong right away and made sure we went to the proper place for him to get surgery. Not to mention that the front desk ladies are amazing as well.
Response: It means so much to us to have your trust in taking care of your dogs all these years, Deborah -- thank you. We'll be here to give your pups the best care we can, and we'll be here anytime you need. -Dr. Murphy, Business Owner

Brett McReynolds: My dog has been a patient at this clinic for almost 4 years. She is a boxer mix and has seizures so she needs medication. She had one so bad that it almost killed her when she was young- so the medication is very important. The reason for this one star review is that the clinic said they would call in her medication last week- but they didn't and now they are closed (on a Wednesday). We can't get a hold of anyone and she has no more pills. I might have only given a two star review if this was the first time this has happened, but it is not. In fact, I cannot think of time where the vet called in the prescription as they were supposed to, in a timely manner. It always results with us having to tell them to call it in. My dog is in need of medication and this clinic has finally proven itself to be beyond negligent. They have now entered the realm of dangerous due to their negligence. I will be immediately switching clinics- and hope I do not have to take my dog to the emergency vet because of this situation. UPDATE: They called in the prescription and our dog will have medication. I'll increase a star- but we'll still be leaving due to the aforementioned situations.

Friendship Hospital For Animals: what do users think?


Jessica Rubenstein: Friendship Hospital for Animals has done an amazing job with both our cat and our dog. Last year they saved our cats life by correctly diagnosing him with FIP when another vet across town missed that diagnoses. Our cat would have died within weeks without Friendship getting it right. This year, our dog needed a fast-growing mass removed so we went to Friendship again. She has had masses removed before at other vets but this time the incision looks AMAZING and she’s healing so well. Friendship also has an incredible ophthalmologist at their location, which I didn’t know doggy ophthalmology was even a thing until we needed one. The ophthalmologist immediately knew how to care for our dogs degenerative eye condition that other vets missed. After paying the deposit for our dogs surgery and not needing all of the services, the billing department quickly refunded the services we ended up not needing. We recommend this vet to everyone.

D Charlie: The Best Skilled and Professional service. These people took OUTSTANDING care of my Dog Uncle Charlie! They have all the EQUIPMENT your pet needs and Uncle Charlie received top quality service. My Dog is 15 and Friendship showed him great Respect while handling. I LOVE Friendship Animal Hospital and I thank GOD for everything!

Malia Coppage: I took my dog , Mariah, in for an emergency in the middle of the night this week. I was really impressed with the staff and the care they provided for my dog. Everyone seemed to genuinely care and they were very sweet to her and to me. I would like to say a special thanks to Dr. Asher Feldman who saw her on ER and to Dr. Allison Haley and her neurology team for taking care of her the following day!

Michael Black: Absolutely incredible. They handle a very large volume of pets, and while the wait time was very long it was absolutely worth it. My dog came in with a bite wound and the staff checked me in calmly, the doctor reassured me and kept me perfectly informed along the way. The front staff was very professional; on top of everything they were adjusting the pictures in the lobby so the frames weren’t crooked. You should know that: - the wait time is long - emergency procedures are expensive But I would wait even longer and pay even more for this quality of service. 100% recommend for an emergency alternative to your primary vet.

Gracie Meringer: I had to bring my dog here a few nights ago. She was seen quickly, diagnosed quickly and they filled her prescriptions immediately. Total our visit was less than 2 hours. Dr. Perry explained everything thoroughly, answered all of my questions and clearly really loved my dog. She was carried by the staff in a blanket because of her injured back. They all clearly cared and were easy to work with. My follow up questions and emails were answered so fast, and when I needed more medicine they filled it immediately. I hope your pet never needs an ER/Urgent care visit but if they do, this is absolutely the place to go.

Daniel Patterson: Friendship recently saved my dogs life this past weekend. I brought him in Saturday for lethargy, loss of appetite, and overall inactivity. They checked his vitals, which all looked good, and gave me the option for additional bloodwork or just to give him some anti-nausea meds and see how he did on a bland diet. I chose the second. The next day, he was still not any better and I started getting more worried, so I brought him back. They ran further tests, discovered a ruptured gallbladder, and performed the dangerous emergency surgery to remove his gallbladder and clean out his abdomen. Throughout the process, Friendship's staff never sugar coated anything, were very honest and blunt about prognosis, and answered our questions best they could. They called generally when they said they would, and treated him carefully and thoroughly in the days following surgery (even sending us photos). While we still have a long road ahead of us, Friendship bought us more time with our beloved pup and we are very thankful for that.

Maggie Chan: I brought in a stray cat that I was hoping to adopt and keep. I had taken him to my usual vet across town who had checked him out and indicated the cat was in good health and for vaccinations. Within days, the cat quickly spiraled downhill so I quickly rushed him to Friendship Hospital for Animals on a Sunday. Yes, the wait was long but I was very appreciative of Dr. Murphy who was detailed and thorough with the diagnosis and options. Despite a long day (I brought the cat in at 2 pm and at 2 am, she was still there), she was patient, compassionate, and answered all my questions. It was heartbreaking to have to put the cat down but it was also reassuring that Dr. Murphy did her best to help keep the cat comfortable. Thank you.

Kate Wall: We've had good and bad experiences with Friendship's emergency team over the years, but this time they were fabulous! Came in with our new kitten who'd hurt his leg. Turned out to be a complicated fracture, and he needed surgery through the specialist orthopedics team. Both the emergency and specialty teams were wonderful, and he's healing beautifully. Everyone was kind, compassionate, and caring. We really appreciated that our little guy was in good hands! Care at Friendship is not inexpensive; you will spend at least a few hundred dollars for an emergency that doesn't require significant treatment, and at least a couple of thousand (can be much more) for surgery, cancer, or other complex/ongoing issues. The sad fact is that these services are expensive, and you'll spend similar money at other emergency vets in the area (we've tried most of them). Friendship's doctors are top notch, and their services/equipment are among the best in the region. So it's worth going to them rather than elsewhere for peace of mind.

Lindsay P: We’ve been bringing our dogs here for years now, and have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars, and it seems like over the past year or two the customer service has gone down hill and the business seems more concerned about profits then care. We’ve received little to no follow up after appointments, and reception has been curt and unhelpful over the phone. We will likely continue coming here only because they maintain the medical history and know our dogs, but we would not recommend this business if you’re looking for a place that truly cares about the well being of your pet and maintaining positive relationships.

Sage Thompson: It's never a great experience when you need emergency care. I took my pet here for emergency care at the direction of my primary vet who did not have the availability for the procedure we needed. I called Friendship the night before we planned on taking him to collect information. The person I spoke to on the phone was very nice and told me to take my pet in the morning for an urgent care appt and call before to make sure I could still bring him in. I woke up early and called again, and they said to bring him in for urgent care. I showed up to drop him off for urgent care and the person who answered the door was incredibly rude and said she didn't think their urgent care was open. She insinuated his case wasn't severe enough for urgent care. She checked with someone else that they were accepting urgent cases. I was really close to taking him to another facility because of this one person. I ended up leaving him there, for which I was thankful, because my pet required overnight hospitalization. The vet was amazing and answered all my questions and explained everything very well. Drop off and pick up is clunky. Friendship called to let me know to pick up my pet and told me to pick him up in 1 hour so he would be ready for us. We arrived to pick him up and we called the # and they told us to wait in our car because it would be a while. The cost of the procedures were less than we were quoted and nobody noticed or offered to check us out. I had to knock on the door and get the staff to refund the remaining amount. Overall, I am thankful Friendship was able to take my pet. Almost everyone was pleasant. I'm sure there is a ton of stress on the animal care community. Usually one rude person I would overlook but when you're already stressed from an emergency I almost made the mistake of not leaving him to get the care he needed. I hope this person was having an off day. I rated 4 stars because the experience intensified my stress instead of having a staff that put me at ease and give me confidence they would treat my pet well while in their care - which is especially important when you can't go inside or be present with the veterinarian.

Georgetown Veterinary Hospital: what do users think?


Jake Gould: Dr. Lee Morgan has cared for my mother and father in-law's 2 labs now I believe for 20 years. He is such an amazingly caring veterinarian that he has periodically answered questions for me, even though I live an hour away. While I don't think any doctor has time to do that for everyone, because I've my inlaw's he has been gracious enough to do that. I find his medical advice spot on and if I lived within 20 minutes of the good doctor, there is no one else I'd ever see. My in-laws love Dr. Morgan and I can tell just speaking with him, that he is at the top of the field in knowledge and expertise.
Response: Thanks so much! I'm very touched with your kind words.

Cassia Denton: Dr. Morgan is the absolute best veterinarian in the city. You will not find a kinder, more loving, more competent professional in the game, and his staff go above and beyond to make your pet feel like their own. I have referred multiple people to this office and every single one now has a vet for life!
Response: Thank you so much! I am honored to be Turkeys vet!

Jamal Peter Le Blanc: Georgetown Veterinary Hospital is a caring, empathetic hospital for pets and the owners who love them. Dr. Lee Morgan is an accomplished veterinarian who has also cared for dogs during multiple Iditarod runs. (A book of his experiences there is scheduled for release soon.) The hospital's staff and physicians take seriously their responsibility to your pet's health.

Vanessa Hurley: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueWe recently brought our rescue dog, Lady, for a check-up and were delighted with the kind, professional and caring staff at Georgetown Veterinary Hospital. The doctors and staff here take time to explain every aspect of their treatment suggestions and we left feeling confident that Lady is in the best of hands!

Heather W.: Dr. Morgan is amazing and takes such good care of our sweet Weimaraner. Our dog has needed two surgeries - one dog bite and one cut paw from shrapnel in the woods. We are so happy with the level of care and results. There is almost no scar. Dr. Morgan is our routine vet now as well. I also find Dr. Morgan’s wife who works the reception desk to be extremely nice and attentive.

Tyler Lawrence: Georgetown Veterinary Hospital is a terrific vet with a convenient location. While we've unfortunately moved too far away to continue to use the vet for our car-skeptical cats, we'd go back to GVH in a heartbeat, if possible. The staff is extremely responsive and clearly very caring about their animal patients. I highly recommend this business to anyone looking for a new vet!!

Schuyler Malachi: Georgetown Vet Hospital has the most heart-felt, loving, caring, compassionate staff I've ever met. They try so hard to please everyone and to keep everyone's pets healthy and happy. Especially during this time of covid, when the world is a little crazy, they are working hard and doing a wonderful job keeping us together. I am grateful for them and the little piece of sanity that they provide.

Jenny Sorrento: Dr. Morgan is the best. I found his practice in 2007 when I was at my wit's end with the area options for veterinary care. He's taken excellent care of my two pups, he's honest and very cautious with testing and medication. He likes to try the path of least resistance - always, and I appreciate that in a vet. Where it's not life threatening, he's outlined options and allowed me to choose which is wonderful. We've just realized that he is such an unbelievably caring and trustworthy doctor that our dogs won't ever see another vet again. Thankful to have found him!

alicia tim swenson obrien: We are absolutely thrilled that we made the switch to Dr. Morgan! We have been taking our two dogs and cat to a large chain vet clinic for the past few years. They never know what is going on with our pets, and we have shelled out a lot of money to have problems we do not feel get fixed. What we really wanted for our pets was what we grew up with in our small Midwestern towns - the warmth of a vet who knows your family/pets and really seems to care. I was not sure this would be easy to find and instead went for proximity and scheduled a second opinion with Dr. Morgan. I was immediately impressed by the warm feeling of the clinic (something you don't get at a big box vet chain). We did not have to wait and everyone we met was friendly, including the resident dog! Dr. Morgan paid attention to me and our dogs and answered my questions in a kind way. He explained what he would like to do and the reasons, gave me a fair price quote, and was able to schedule my dog for surgery right away. He reassured me about the things pet owners worry about with surgery and we dropped our dog off for surgery knowing he would be a priority to the clinic all day (as would all the others there - they aren't trying to see as many pets as possible in one day). What really impressed me was Dr. Morgan's offer after surgery to give personal care to our dog. He knew we had a toddler and a newborn at home and that our dog would be having a rough night after surgery. He acted in our dogs best interest and offered to take care of him overnight and control his pain. How incredible! Really, I am still just in awe that we found someone to take such good care of our pet, and of us! I very highly recommend Dr. Morgan. We will be bringing the whole pet family to him!

Lauren Roy: Dr Lee Morgan and staff are incredibly kind and don’t over prescribe treatments or procedures. We have taken our pets here for 10 years and can not recommend them enough for care of Dogs, older and puppies. Dr. Morgan works outside the office as a non profit vet for Police Dogs and the Alaskan Iditarod. Amazing Veterinarian and person.

Banfield Pet Hospital: what do users think?


Rick Javier: Unfortunately, my dog has three mammary tumors. I've been waiting since April 30 for an email of the estimated cost for the removal procedure. I've called multiple times a week and have been told I would receive an email within a day or two. There has been no response or call back from voicemails. After a 40 min phone call, I was told the vet is out till Friday, and MAYBE another vet can get back to me.This location is overbooked, stretched thin, and doesn't have the capability to care for the urgency of this matter. Yet, they will pile in the appointments to rank in their funds.
Response: Hi Rick, we're sorry to hear about these challenges, and we'd like to follow up. Please email us at BanfieldCares@banfield.com with your account details along with the best way to reach you.

Catherine Delaney: I will not be bringing my dog back to Banfield. We have been plan members for over 5 years. We have rarely needed to bring her in for emergencies or due to her being sick, but when we have there has been at least a month wait with no options to bring her in sooner. What is the point of being a preferred plan member if your dog can’t be seen when sick? Not to mention the woman on the phone was extremely rude and not helpful. Many people warned me not to bring our dog here and I wish I had listened. They took our money monthly and when we actually needed them for something they were beyond dismissive.
Response: We're sorry to hear about the challenges you've had making an appointment, Catherine.

Deirdre Marie Hawkins: We brought our dog in for what we believed to just be a case of diarrhea. We received a phone call stating that he had pancreatitis. We picked him up and never talked to doctor upon his pickup. Instead, we were given meds to help combat the diarrhea. So, naturally we didn't think it was as serious of an issue. Prior to this appointment our dog hadn't eaten in a few days. After one day of attempting to give him meds, we called back to get him an earlier follow up. Which was impossible as they were booked out into July. So, we decided to take our baby to the emergency room. His case was apparently a bit more serious than we knew or were told. Our ended up staying in the emergency vet for two days; still not able to eat, respond to meds. We ended up having to put him down. My concern for anyone reading this is, to be sure you talk to a doctor AND do your own research even after speaking to a doctor. My husband specifically asked the person at Banfield who he spoke with on the phone is pancreatitis fatal for dogs as it can be for humans, and we were made to believe it would pass in time. This location needs different protocols when checking out their patients; ones that ensure that the doctor talks to the human face-to-face before he returns home.
Response: Deirdre - we are saddened to learn about your experience and would like to follow up with you directly. Whenever you are able, please send us a private message or an email at BanfieldCares@banfield.com with the full name, email address, and phone number associated with your account.

TaQuesha Thompson: This place have really went down hill from four years ago when I first started bringing my fur baby here the use to communicate more better and was more professional I don’t know if they are under new management or what but it is a mess.

Arlington Animal Hospital: what do users think?


Robert Meltzer: Great vets and office!! Love the new space with the old sign. Vets are very thoughtful and get back to me by phone with answers to my questions or email me info. Office staff is very nice. Been with them for almost 4 years and the only place I take my cat! Great place!

Anna Anderson: Always have a wonderful experience with the staff. They really care for my cat. They are quick to respond to questions and the vet talks to you personally. It is nice to have such great people to count on!

Kristal Ricks: I love taking my fur babies to Arlington Animal Hospital! Kerry and the team are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. They provide efficient service and are super caring .

Sarah Nichols: I have 2 cats and a dog that go there. The vets always take the time to answer my questions and give me solid recommendations on food/medicine/etc. I know my fur kids are in good hands! Update: Most of the vets we see here have been wonderful, but we saw Dr. B. Jones today instead and I was unhappy with how roughly she handled my dog during his yearly exam and claiming he was aggressive - when it was the rough handling making him distressed. He's never had that problem before, but now I'm worried it WILL be a problem since he was so stressed out. I'd prefer a vet that focuses on fear-free visits, even if it takes longer and costs more

Mike E: Arlington Animal Hospital has been our place to go for our doggie needs. The staff is great and they really take great care of our furry family members. I couldn’t ask for more.

Andrew M: My dog has been a patient here for about five years and we've only had very good experiences. Easy to schedule, great staff, compassionate vets. The vets even call days after appointments or if they know the pet has had a surgery to see how they are doing. I can't imagine a better veterinarian hospital.

Adam Colborn: My wife and I love this vet. We've always had a great experience. We've also taken our cats to two VCA locations in the area as well and felt that the service from VCA Southpaws and VCA Alexandria was rushed and not thorough (not to mention more expensive). The doctors at Arlington Animal Hospital have always taken the time to listen to us and walk us through their examination of our cats. We feel like we get their full attention when we take our pets in, which we have not felt with other vets in the area. While our experiences with all of the doctors there have been excellent, we particularly appreciate Dr. Jones. He's very compassionate and always helps us understand what is going on with our cats' health and how to best take care of them. We really appreciate all of the staff at Arlington Animal Hospital and the quality of care they give our cats.

Rocketboy 1313: Exceptionally helpful with finding medications, giving some good and direct advice, and making sure pets are treated well. My dog does not lament visiting this vet.

Shannon Jennings: I've been taking my chihuahua here for around five years and have only good things to say! We have had good experiences with every doctor and staff member we've interacted with. The doctors respond quickly to messages, questions, and med refills. Communication and appointments are always easy. My dog has behavioral issues and is always treated with patience and kindness 😊 like I mentioned at the beginning, only good things to say!

Amber Lopez: Arlington Animal Hospital is wonderful. Our dog is difficult with vets and requires a plan of action and sedatives before even the simplest of appointments. Dr. Jones works with me personally every time to make sure a plan is in place, that we are comfortable with the plan, and he is happy to explain the reasoning behind each of his decisions. The administrative staff is also very kind and patient, and always professional. We're glad we found AAH and Dr Jones, and are grateful for the quality of care we receive each time we're there.

Takoma Park Animal Clinic: what do users think?


Nicole Bellows: While we were initially pleased with the clinic, when we had a small problem with my dog develop into a serious problem (eye infection progressed to rupture) we were told they were too busy to see us and they never returned out calls after leaving multiple messages. It was really disappointing and we ended up switching vets. If you just need routine care, I think this place is fine but don't count on them to be there for you when you really need them.

Natisha Harper: I am new to the area and just adopted my fur baby and was fortunate to find Takoma Park Animal Clinic. This was my second vet clinic because the previous was self righteous and rude and I got tired of paying them to be treated that way. Takoma Park Animal Clinic is a great place with phenomenal customer service, and the veterinarians and dentist are fantastic. They also have parking right upfront which is a bonus in this area. They are my Romeo's permanent caretakers from here on out.

Theresa Knudson: I took my cat for a check-up and shots thinking everything was fine and the doctor found an ear infection, started treatment and told me how to continue clearing it up. She is always very thorough and that makes me confident I am doing my best for my pet.

maxine hillary: Website says they do boarding, but when I called to see if they could hold my diabetic cat for a day while I have a medical procedure they told me they couldn't because they don't have someone there who can give him his shot. What! A vet clinic that can't give a diabetic cat a shot? Don't go near this place.

Sarah Sullivan: I've been bringing my cats and dogs here since 2007 and am so grateful for the warmth and care they get from the staff. Dr. Carey in particular is an absolute godsend and has been there on multiple occasions to help me through difficult decisions, including making housecalls when it was time to say goodbye. I've had a great experience with the other doctors and the techs as well - they really care about the animals.

Taylor Jabin: I moved to Takoma Park- and Needed a New Vet. I called them and they were able to schedule me right away. They are friendly, thorough, and patient with all my questions. During the Pandemic they were still able to take my cat for a check up. Their pricing is fair- and the doctor took time on the phone to answer all my questions and concerns.

Megan Harris: We needed to get our dog vaccinated before boarding him, so we were on time constraints. Takoma Park animal Clinic was able to fit us in same day when we couldn’t get an appointment anywhere else for several weeks. The staff was very courteous (and walked me through how to send his records electronically). The veterinarian met me outside and talked to me about my dog and then brought him out to me. He was very friendly and was playing with my dog when they came out the door. I had a great experience here. It is pricey but they gave me a 15% discount for being a new client.

Kerri Redding: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, ResponsivenessWhen we moved to the area Takoma Park Animal Clinic handled the health issues for our four senior cats beautifully. They've also done a wonderful job taking care of the kittens we adopted after our seniors had transitioned. Our two girls love their bath experience here. Highly recommended and super friendly!

Regina McNeal: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueDr. Malachi was so friendly and professional. She made us feel comfortable after a surgery and was very informative. I felt like my dog was in great hands! I would highly recommend Takoma Park Animal Clinic. Kudos to a great team of people!

Catherine Cummings: Even though we moved 20 minutes away, I still bring my golden retriever to Takoma Park Animal Clinic. We usually see Dr. Decker, and he's awesome with our rambunctious, XL dog. He was also the kindest when we had to say goodbye to our last beloved dog, and it was that kindness that really means the world. The technicians are the most wonderful people, so kind and friendly. Communication is very good, and they refer you elsewhere if the issue requires a specialist. This is a friendly, nonjudgemental, experienced Clinic. We have pet insurance, which helps with non-routine costs. I would say this clinic is mid-range in cost, sometimes on the high end. With insurance, it is a good value. Five stars!

EMMAvet: what do users think?


Maira Oliva: My 2 year old golden retriever lucky got the best care I could possibly ask for. The entire staff was very attentive , explained everything thoroughly. Unfortunately we came in for a sick visit but everyone made the friendly giant feel comfortable and happy again. I would highly recommend this location for urgent vet care. They practice great covid protocols and also kept me updated through out his visit while I remained near by!
Response: Thank you for the review!!! We love these gentle (and usually goofy) goldens for sure!

beauty. dispenser: I had an excellent experience with EMMAvet. Their practice is extremely COVID safe. Everyone I spoke with was very friendly. Before they did anything in addition to the physical, they called me and let me know the cost so I could give informed consent. My kitty came out calmer than when she went in, which I think speaks to the quality of the folks working there. Oh and the visit was super quick, in and out within the hour. My only complaint is I wish they offered payment plans for the bills like some human hospitals do.
Response: Thank you for the review!!! We appreciate the specifics too so we can see where we can learn and grow. We will look into having a “billing department” to handle payment plans.

Chris Clark: EMMAvet helped us over a holiday weekend when our regular vet was not available. What a caring, empathetic, and competent staff! Great care, and professional service. We would recommend them whole heartedly.
Response: Thank you for the review!!!

Ashraf Ajban: I have experienced more then 7 different Vets/Emergency Rooms and honest to god I’ve never seen this amount of care and compassion come from anyone. Jessie is the best, even though they were too busy to take me in, she stayed on the phone with me to make sure everything is okay and helped me take care of my puppy in the mean time. She knew they were too busy and it’s not like they were about to make money from me, regardless she helped me much more then I can ever help her. Then she went and called the vets around the area (that have no association with them) to see if she can get him in ASAP. She honestly did not have to do all of that every single place I called said “ hey sorry were backed up I’ll put u on the list, bye” but she went above and beyond and for that I’m forever grateful. Those selfless acts is what separates her from the rest.Thanks Jessie again. <3 This is Leroy, he is 1 year old and 4 pounds.
Response: Thank you for this review!! I will be sure to pass it along to Jessie as well as the entire team. We hope you were able to get Leroy taken care of! We are also doing our best to accommodate more pets with expansion plans in the works!!

Melissa Kemendo: We went to a nearby emergency vet and left when we saw a number of red flags in their actions. We were so glad we made the extra drive to get to EMMAvet - it was such a contrast from the experience we had elsewhere. We were greeted warmly and compassionately, given clear expectations for what would come next, and given insight along the way. We waited out front for our dog and saw many customers and their pets come and go, which each one given the same level of care.
Response: Thank you for the review!!! We strive to give our owners the same TLC as we give our patients :)

Taylor Bezerra: This is the second time I used EMMAvet - the first time, they saved my cat's life by diagnosing a linear foreign body, then calling around to get him an appointment at an overnight ER vet to have it removed. The second time, it wasn't an emergency appointment, they did a check-up on a sick semi-feral cat I'm caring for, and they were once again fantastic! They were a) incredibly kind to this scared, sick semi-feral cat, and b) were very compassionate to me and walked me through the treatment as well as reassuring me how carefully they handled him to make sure he wasn't more scared than he was. Great experiences all around!
Response: Thank you for the review!!! This is exactly what we are here for. We hope both are feeling better now ♥️

Mary Porter: We were very grateful EmmaVet could see us on a Saturday when our dog had injured herself. The staff were so gracious and lovely and kept us informed as things progressed. She is home and doing great, and we are so appreciative of the wonderful care.
Response: Thank you so much for the review!!! We are also so happy to know she’s on the mend ❤️‍

Ashley Bryan: I know I would not have been able to handle the loss of my sweet Cali dog without the gentle kindness of Dr. Nolan and her team. Dr. Nolan was so patient and understanding as we went through this process, and helped us feel heard and cared for. The staff loved our little one well to the end and even after. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Response: Thank you for the review. We are so sorry for your loss of Cali, and we are appreciative to be there for you in these times.

Hayley Mitchell: EmmaVet is a very professional, kind, and helpful clinic!! I 100% recommend them to any pet owner seeking a primary care vet or urgent care! They took excellent care of my cat who had breathing problems and got him in right at 3pm into the urgent care, diagnosed and treated him quickly and efficiently, and now he’s back to his normal self 2 days later!

staci kovelman: Positive: Professionalism, ResponsivenessHighly recommend this urgent care! They were so helpful when my dog was having a bad allergic reaction. They were so kind and caring, even right before closing on a holiday! The visit was quick and the vet was thorough and answered all my questions. Thank you so much for helping us out!
Response: Thank you for the review!!! We’re glad it was an in-and-out emergency!!!

VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital: what do users think?


chelsea gadiano: Got our appointment for Ridley’s yearly exam! Service is always great, ladies at the reception area are helpful and nice! Techs are very sweet and gentle with Ridley. Our vet is amazing answered my questions and explained stuff very well!
Response: It was a pleasure to assist you and Ridley, Chelsea. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to help and for sharing this positive experience. We'd be honored to help with any future pet-care needs!

Presha Poudel: This review is for Dr. Janice Baxter. I came in with my adopted cat, Buttons from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue for our first vet visit. The moment Dr. Baxter saw me coming in she commented on the size of my carrier. Not a hello or hi, but the first thing she stated was her disapproval for the size of Button's carrier. I let it be thinking that things would get better, but it DIDN'T!!! She was very RUDE and one of the most unprofessional Vets I've encountered. I've never adopted an animal before or had a cat, (grew up with dogs) so I came equipped with questions. Dr. Baxter disregarded all my concerns and anything I had to say. It's unfortunate that Homeward Trails has a partnership with VCA Animal Hospital and as a Foster I would not have came here had it not been that they offered a complimentary visit. I've never been spoken down to like this and would hope that the staff here does something so that no other customer feels or is treated the way I was!! On top of this, I was charged $91.00 for the Vet visit even AFTER Dr. Baxter refused to conduct an exam on Buttons!!!! She told me that we would have to make another appointment after she's been given Gabapentin seeing that Buttons was not cooperative during the visit. WHY were we charged $91.00 for a Vet Exam when all Dr. Baxter did was take Buttons weight!? When I vocalized my concerns at the front desk, I was told that it is at the discretion of the Vet to determine what was considered an Exam. Needless to say, I am very disappointed and believe that Homeward Trails should reconsider their partnership with VCA Animal Hospital.
Response: It's unfortunate to hear about your negative experience, and we apologize if you were spoken to in a way that made you feel uncomfortable. That is never our intention and doesn't align with our team's commitment to providing professional service. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention, and if you would like to discuss them in greater detail, you are welcome to email our hospital manager at reviews.vcaalexandria@vca.com. Thank you.

Tara Jeanne: Doctors are great here. Fabulous. But the Management and reception communicate so poorly that it isn't worth it. My dog was just neutered and I received 3 different promises for quotes. If you must go here, I recommend recording every conversation you have. Neutering a 13 pound dog ended up costing close to $700.
Response: Tara, communicating with our clients is very important to our team, so it's discouraging to read your feedback. We hope you'll give us an opportunity to go over these concerns with you by emailing us at reviews.vcaalexandria@vca.com.

Emily Larson: I have only been here with my dog and we love it. She is high energy and hard to handle but they always help me contain her excitement and take her in a timely manner. All of the assistants are so friendly and helpful. My dog went through a few months where we had to go in every 2 weeks to get her foot looked at and every single time they were so helpful, respectful, understanding, and took the time to explain everything. I have also called just to ask questions to get some advice without going in and they happily answer. Highly recommend!
Response: Emily, thank you so much for the wonderful show of support. We love being here for you and your dog, and we are so glad you can always count on our team for helpful and professional care.

Elle Scott: We’ve been living in the area for a little over a year and wish we would have found this place sooner! We showed up a few minutes before closing time when our dog unexpectedly hurt her foot on our evening walk, and the reception team graciously accepted us for a walk-in visit. The team was so kind to us and our dog, and our vet was very thorough. We will definitely be back!
Response: Elle, we're so glad we could help with your dog's needs, and we appreciate you sharing your experience. Please reach out if you need us in the future!

Erin Albuquerque: They say they are open until 6pm online but the vets seems to come and go whenever they please so make sure you don’t go here if your pet needs urgent care. They claim to have urgent care hours but never have a vet when I’ve gone in twice now. This last time my dog was steady bleeding from the mouth and there was a vet on location who refused to treat him without an appointment so they sent me 20 minutes away to their Fairfax location which is just as awful. They are not sympathetic to pet owners and just say over and over that their hours change daily and not to come without calling …..not what I’m think about while my dogs bleeding from the mouth, you’d think they would at least pretend to get that. Overall, there are better vets who actually care about the animals they treat. The one non emergency appointment we had here the vet wouldn’t even acknowledge my puppy so it’s was miserable for us all as my puppy tried to get to the vet across the exam room just to say hi (as puppies do), incredibly odd to be a vet but not like puppies. I had to stop the appointment and ask the vet to just pet the puppy so he would calm down and I could focus on what the guy was saying.
Response: Erin, we are disappointed by your comments, as we make every effort to be there for our clients when they need us and strive to offer a positive experience. It's unfortunate that you've reached out when we haven't had the bandwidth to meet your needs, and we can assure you our team does everything possible to assist as many pets as we can. Please give us an opportunity to address your concerns with you personally by emailing our hospital manager at reviews.vcaalexandria@vca.com. Thank you.

K. R.: The facility is clean and staff are friendly. Dr. Chiang is excellent! She explained what is needed why and when, answered all my questions, my puppy didn't feel pain from his shot, received lots of attention and treats, and was very comfortable being there.
Response: Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're so glad you had a great experience, and we'd be honored to assist with any of your future pet-care needs.

Em Whitworth: EDIT: One year later, we're healthier and happier than ever – and still happy patients of VCA. ### I adopted my cat, Vision, three weeks ago. He has had a host of health issues that the shelter did not detect or alert me to, so we've been running from vet to vet trying to get his various ailments attended to. I came in with a laundry list of issues today and Dr. Chiang and her technicians handled all of them with courtesy, kindness and genuine care for my little guy. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Chiang's bedside manner – she asked follow-up questions, showed care and concern for Vis, and patiently walked me through options without rushing. The price point is fair considering the level of care and professionalism we received. Vis and I will be back for future appointments! Photo of a happy, soon-to-be healthy little patient. :) EDIT: Also shout out to Tim for checking us in with such a positive energy, and to the whole team for how you are handling the COVID-19 protocol. We waited for 5 minutes before we were seen, and were out within an hour.
Response: Emily, thank you for sharing all of the things you enjoyed from your experience with our team! We're proud that you have a high level of trust in us when it comes to Vision's care. We're happy to know that we have been able to help the both of you, and we promise to always do whatever we can to ensure you feel completely taken care of.

Kristen Kabay: I have nothing but fantastic things to say about VCA. My dog Reign, had an emergency and we ended up at VCA. From the person answering phones, to the vet techs, and Dr. Galvan, every staff member I spoke to were the nicest, most compassionate, and professional people. They treated my pup with the best care and found the issue fairly quickly after a thorough examination without charging me an arm and a leg for unnecessary tests. Thank you all again so much! I would definitely recommend VCA with all your pets needs.
Response: You're very welcome, Kristen, and thank you for bringing Reign to us. We're proud to hear that everyone provided kind, professional, and compassionate care, and we're grateful for your recommendation.

CiCi Chindamo: The staff was friendly, well informative, and accommodated our dog who isn’t well with other dogs but loves people! I love using VCA as I have used Herndon location, and Centreville due to relocating but I never had a bad experience. VCA Is always such a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them!!!
Response: We love working with you and your dog, CiCi! Thank you for your support, and please know we're always here to provide professional and informative service.

Clarendon Animal Care North Arlington: what do users think?


Andrew Hart: The staff are friendly and the vet I saw seems very knowledgeable but I do get the sense this clinic is more focused on money. A first visit for my elderly cat was cut short due to the 30 min window. My appointment felt rushed and we didn't even get to all of my cats health issues during our appointment. If you have plenty of money to shell out then by all means come to this clinic. It is clean, professional, and comfortable. But if you are a regular person who needs affordable care, this isn't the place you should go.
Response: Hi Andrew, we are sorry you felt that your appointment was rushed when you visited recently. We definitely strive to answer our client's questions and address their concerns as best we can in the time we have with you. I am happy to get you a call or telemed appointment with the doctor to finish discussing what you felt wasn't addressed. I know we were able to send you an estimate for the dental procedure that was recommended and I can assure you that our practice is not money-focused, but patient-focused. We strive to ensure our staff is highly educated, certified, licensed and confident with the procedures and information utilized in taking care of our patients. That does come at a cost to a certain degree because the most highly-trained people aren't always cheap! We appreciate you recognizing our team for their knowledge and friendly approach - that means a lot!

Ellen V: We’ve taken our golden, Tucker, here since he was 2 months old. We always leave feeling loved and cared for by the amazing staff.Dr. Plough is the best and we’re so thankful to live just a couple of blocks away!

Carly G: Clarendon Animal Care North is absolutely incredible. I recently moved to the area and needed to find a vet for my cat who was due for her yearly check-up. Finding a new vet is stressful because you of course want to be choosing the best care provider for your pet(s). Despite being nervous to take my kitty for her appointment, it couldn't have gone better. Dr. Valentine and staff were incredible. They were so patient and caring with my cat - she didn't even flinch when she got her shots! Dr. Valentine sent me a very thorough follow-up, and I know that with Clarendon Animal Care, my cat is in the best possible hands. Yours will be too! :)
Response: This is SO thoughtful, Carly! Thank you for taking the time to recognize our team! We will ensure Dr. Valentine and crew know! We're also happy to hear your kitty felt safe and comfortable with us, too (one of our biggest goals!).

Piper Akol: The best vet experience I have had! I am in DC but it is easy to take the metro (with my kitty) to this office. Cat is way less scared and tense with the fear free practices, and I have never felt rushed or unheard. They are also helpful if you call with a question, which is helpful so that I can get an answer without having to get my cat in the carrier, etc. for an appointment. We love Dr. Tanner but have had good experiences with all of the staff!
Response: Thank you for the kind words, Piper! We love seeing Tony and Cleo and working with you in their care.

Alexa Alice Joubin: They now allow people (wearing face masks) go to inside with their pets which is good. Very nicely decorated and comfy space. See my new photos. ::::: This clinic is conveniently located in Clarendon; staff are cheerful and friendly; above all they are very responsive on emails and phones; we especially appreciate how Dr. Adkins even responded to an email about illness on a Saturday. Due to COVID, they practice social distancing and do not allow clients in their lobby. We had to wait outside, call them, and they came outside to meet us. Overall the best part about this clinic is their responsiveness.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, Alexa! As you stated, we are currently not allowing clients in the building, however, we are making plans for our policies to adjust as COVID-19 and phases of reopening evolve, but social distancing will remain a large part of our efforts to keep everyone safe! Stay tuned!

Matt Budek: These people are horrible! I lost my dog a couple years ago and gave up hope. They called me to tell me they found my dog. They got my info off of her chip. Thank god i had one implanted. I explained the situation to them and that i would love to get my dog back asap. We were willing to come get her right then and there. They said they had to call me back. Well they didn't. I called them the next day to find out what was going on. They sent my dog to the animal shelter! What the heck. Now i have to call them to try to get my dog. The animal shelter charges and boarding fee every day she is there. I live in a different state and have a full time job and kids that makes it hard to get 1.5 hrs away. The day they called would have been perfect. Now i have to pay a bunch of fees to get her back and on top of that they require a rabies vaccine that the shelter refuses to do there. now i have to drive there, give them a deposit, go to another vet to get the shot, then go back there to get my deposit back. such a headach after thinking my poor dog was gone forever when that could have just given me my dog back the first day. i hate you people.

Melanie MacDonald: As a new pet owner (puppy), I've pulled between viewpoints of breeders, groomers, trainers, and other vets and it's incredibly frustrating to prioritize which health and behavioral problems to address and when. Among them all, this vet is the only pet service that I come out of the appointment feeling at peace that I know the way forward with all of my puppies issues. I don't feel judged or shamed for not knowing things or purchasing the right things and they enable me to form my own conclusions. While my puppy is still on the struggle bus with food, socialization, and acting out at least I know they will help me through it.
Response: Thanks, Melanie! We're here for you!

Sandy PBrown: These folks, from the front desk to the techs to the vets, are ABSOLUTELY unparalleled in their intelligence, their kindness and their compassion. I found them 3 years ago when I moved to Arlington from Denver, and I cannot say enough great things about them. Recently, I had to let my sweet Grimley pass over, and they were so lovely and present and understanding. I moved to Fairfax and still use this vet clinic. These are skilled animal lovers and fantastic doctors.
Response: We're so sorry about Grimley, but so appreciative of these kind words regarding our team! They will be shared with everyone. It's our goal to ensure everyone feels empowered to play an active role in the health of their own pet along with our team! Thank you again!

23 silver: Not a cat clinic. Please do not waste your money on this clinic. They complained about my cat's personality that she hissed at them. What? The vet does not seem to be knowledge about a cat. Did not explain enough about the next treatment plan. She does not seem to care about my cat. Maybe she does not like a cat. I want to work with a vet who treats my cat like their own cat. Waste of time and money.
Response: Hey 23 Silver! I'd love to chat a bit more with you directly in order to better understand your perspective of this experience. To connect with me privately please email me at sara@clarendonanimalcare.com. I can assure you our aim is not for you to walk away with this taste in your mouth. All of our veterinarians care deeply about cats - and dogs too! It's hard to hear your statement about "not being knowledgeable" which is what I'm assuming you were getting at, or even "not liking" cats. We not only care about our patients, we care about our clients which is why I'd love the opportunity to speak further! Hoping you reach out from behind the tag name!

Hannah Magoveny: I really cannot recommend Clarendon Animal Care - North enough. Every since we adopted our sweet girl, an 8 year old cat, we have had some ongoing health issues with her. We continued going to CAC as that was where she had gone her whole life, and we couldn’t be happier! Dr. Plough is simply fabulous- she is so thorough, helpful, and explains everything in detail so we know exactly what is going on! I highly recommend her. Every single vet tech and front desk/admin employee we have worked with have also all been amazing! They are super responsive, which I love. I really appreciate their kindness, especially since our sweet girl is apparently not so sweet when getting any vet exams, lol. Any prescriptions we’ve gotten have also been filled quickly, which is a huge plus. I highly recommend CAC!!
Response: Thank you, Hannah! We're sharing this with Dr. Plough and our team! We're elated to be able to be your choice for your kitty's care provider!
