Your veterinarian may choose to send your pet to us for further diagnostics or overnight care. In those instances, VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital functions as an extension of your primary veterinarian, performs any necessary procedures, and communicates back to them so they know what has transpired and can keep you informed.
Just as in a human hospital, VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital offers your pets all the preventative, diagnostic, surgical and emergency services they need to share a long and happy life with you. You want to know that the hospital caring for your pet is well equipped with the latest technology and equipment, that the staff is knowledgeable and, most of all, that your pet will receive the same love and attention during their care as they would at home. Since we all own pets, we understand your concerns and take special care to treat your loved ones as though they were our own.
