Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Local Medical Issues

There are several local environmental risks endemic in our metropolitan area. Because of our mild winters, year-round prevention against fleas/heartworms and intestinal parasites is critically important. Our suburban living allows for great experiences for our pets to interact with each other and the community in many ways, but also contributes to the spread of diseases at parks, neighborhood common grounds, pet-friendly businesses, and sidewalks. Local wildlife has thrived in our area, and Lyme disease (spread by deer ticks) and Leptospirosis (spread by water contaminated by wild animals), among other risks, are widespread. Our comprehensive prevention, testing and vaccine protocols are designed to protect your family and your pets alike.

New to VCA?

In addition to the traditional services you'd expect from a veterinary hospital, we offer pets and pet parents a selection of specialized veterinary services.

Each of our doctors are trained in using our laser surgery equipment that helps to promote quicker recovery times for your pets. We are advocates in pain management for all surgical procedures.

We are also an AAHA-accredited hospital, and passed our most recent inspection with exceptional ratings.

We offer early drop-off times during the week to help those who commute to the Washington, DC, area to work.

If you aren't sure if we offer a specific service that's important to you, please ask us. If we don't already offer it, we can refer you to one of our sister animal hospitals in the area or to one of our veterinary hospitals.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Chancellor Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission, the hospital team relies on several individuals, each equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

And if things get complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists. In a word: TEAMWORK!

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From check-in to check-out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.

Stop by any time! We want you to be a part of our VCA Chancellor family!
