VCA Annandale Animal Hospital

New Clients

Dear Pet Parent,

Thank you for choosing VCA Annandale Animal Hospital. We look forward to meeting you and your pet. Together, we'll make sure they stay healthy and happy throughout their life.

As a VCA hospital, we are a member of the largest provider of veterinary health care in the country. This gives our veterinarians access to over 200 board-certified specialists should your pet need specialized care. It gives you access to over 500 nationwide locations that offer the same level of care should your pet need attention while you're traveling, or if you happen to move within the United States.

Being a part of VCA frees our veterinarians from the administrative burden of running a pet hospital. Our veterinarians are able to spend their time doing what they love - practicing medicine. VCA veterinarians have the time to give you and your pet the personal attention you deserve.

Before your first visit, please gather any previous medical or adoption records you may have for your pet. Your VCA veterinarian needs this information to get an accurate record of your pet's medical history and to create the best treatment plan for your pet.

When you visit the hospital, please bring your pet in a carrier or on a leash. This will prevent any incidents with other animals that may also be in the lobby.  We also ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we may review any records you are bringing with you as well as allow you time to complete the paperwork required for each patients file.

When it is time for your appointment, one of our Veterinary Technicians will escort you and your pet to an exam room where they will ask you some questions regarding your visit. Weight, temperature, and a quick check of your pet might happen at this time as well.

When the veterinarian examines your pet, they will take the time to listen and ask questions so they can understand your concerns. They will also perform a physical examination of your pet - checking its eyes, ears, and mouth and listening to its heart - and will ask you questions about their habits and activities.

We are excited about meeting you and your pet. We will always strive to provide the level of care that you both deserve.

Should you have any questions about your upcoming visit or procedure, please do not hesitate to call us.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
