  • Thank you

    -Veronica P from Alexandria, VA
    Pet Name: Biscuit

    Pet Image Dr Landis-Hanna,

    Thank you so much for all you have done for Biscuit. I love her so much and her being in my life helps me with my own pain. She is so sweet, loving and very smart. She knows when it is time for her medicine so she hides under my bed.

    Growing up I never liked cats but when Biscuit came into my life, it was love at first sight. When she was hospitalized, I could not sleep or eat because I missed her so very much.

    Thank you for the care you provided to her and for following up on her.

    Veronica P & Biscuit

  • This is the best place in town

    -Hina A. from Manassas, VA
    Pet Name: Shona

    Dr Hanna was very sweet and professional. The receptionist Melissa was the best receptionist I have met in a very long time. Melissa stayed on the phone with me while giving me directions since I was lost. Both vet tech Andrea and Ann were also very very good. They calmed my cat down and didn't force her into the injection until they saw that she was at ease and would allow them to proceed. I felt very pleased with my visit here. And also very very happy that my cat is pretty healthy. If you are looking for a vet this is the best place in town. Everyone smiles and greets you. Overall staff made our experience great!!!! Thumbs up AAA+++

  • LOVE this bunch of people

    -Erin B from Haymarket, VA

    LOVE this bunch of people! Everyone at this clinic seems to really enjoy their job. When I walk in they call my pet by name, come around the counter to give my pet attention and seem like they really care about your pet. The biggest thing was when I got home from work one evening and my dog had bloody diarrhea, I couldn't find a vet in the area to take her to. I called Healthy Paws at around 7:55pm, (they list their closing hours at 8 during the week), and the receptionist told me to come right over with my pet. I appreciated that the staff stayed after hours to care for my pet. I will continue to bring my pets to them!!

  • I am very impressed.

    -Dawn from Winchester, VA
    Pet Name: Isabelle

    My first impression was the entire staff was pleasant and caring. The staff that passed the front desk while I was waiting said hello to me and a few of the staffed came over and showed my dog attention. Nancy at the front desk made the extra effort to come from behind the front desk to retrieve my completed papers. She took the time to become acquainted with my dog. She asked me how I was today and seemed like she truly cared. I was surprised to receive a card and letter from the hospital. I thought it added a personal touch. The letter was signed by the hospital staff. I am very impressed.

  • Excellent Veterinary Service

    -Athryn from Haymarket, VA

    I have taken all of my pets to this Veterinary Office since I moved to the area, and it's the best Vet I've dealt with since I moved to Virginia. They have a very clean and spacious waiting area, with segregated access between dogs and cats, the staff is very knowledgeable and they have great customer service. They were also able to diagnose a problem with my cat that 2 other vets attributed to a behavioral problem. I would highly recommend this vet to anyone!‎


    -Vicky Schnaubelt from Centreville, VA
    Pet Name: Ginger , Missy

    My daughter, Maria & I were going thru very hard times. On Dec. 13, 2011, her tuxedo cat "MERCEDES" became very ill. After being examined by ANDREA BALLOU, DVM @ VCA HEALTHY PAWS MEDICAL CENTER in HAYMARKET, VA., it was sadly determined, she had to be put to sleep, her kidneys were shutting down, and she had pnemonia.

    I, NEVER, in all of my 70 yrs. witnessed the MOST LOVING, CARING & COMPASSIONATE, GESTURES OF MERCY, as ever so "softly & peacefully", MERCEDES drifted off, TO SLEEP WITH THE ANGELS. We had time for our final good-byes, and we were all at peace.! She had given us many "happy memories" of our 6 yrs. of love for each other.

    FACING HOMELESSNESS and going into a shelter on Jan. 18, 2012, we were faced with another sad decision, we had to give up our other "2 little girls" (felines) for adoption. Once again, we called upon MICHELE, Hospital Manager at VCA Healthy Paws Medical Center in Haymarket,VA. for her professional help & expertise to guide us in this process. The days to follow were filled with tears and sadness and anxiety. We could hardly sleep nor eat. With Michele's help, we searched out an affordable place that would accept all of us. We found this in Centreville, VA.

    THANKS A MILLION to MICHELE and her staff of dedicated, professional,loving & caring individuals.

    For all your veterinary services,including surgeries, adoption services, boarding, and all your pets care," WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND," VCA HEALTHY PAWS MEDICAL CENTER in HAYMARKET,VA. Your experience with VCA, in HAYMARKET,VA., will be "UNFORGETTABLE". Gratefully yours, Vicky & Maria.
    P.S., Love from "Ginger & Missy"

  • Thanks For Your Kindness.

    -Tim Buchanan from Manassas, VA
    Pet Name: Ivan

    Pet Image Fifteen years ago, my wife and I were sent to Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota for an assignment while I was still in the U.S. Air Force. Unknown as to what this frozen adventure would bring us, we ventured off to the local pet store and picked up the best companion a family could ever ask for.

    Ivan has been a part of our family since the frozen tundra of North Dakota, being a personal jungle gym for a three year old in North Carolina, and relaxing in Florida before moving to Virginia. He was an awesome and integral part of the family and the best breed of dog I have ever had the pleasure to care for.

    I would like to thank you on behalf of my family for the clay paw and kind words that warmed our hearts and gave us peace knowing that Ivan is not hurting any more. What you’ve done for us is more than we could have ever imagined. I’m sure he is having a blast running around the meadows and hills at Rainbow Bridge. Only in Ivan’s case, the landscape is covered in snow.

    Sincerely and Respectfully,

    The Buchanan Family

  • Thanks

    -The Schauer Family from Haymarket, VA

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done for us and our pets while here in Haymarket. We will be moving soon and will miss your thoughtful and caring nature with our pets and with us.

    You have gotten us through some very difficult situations with Millie and Frieda. We hope to find another veterinary clinic like we have had here. Thank you!

    Very much appreciated,
    The Schauer Family, Frieda and Millie

  • Thanks

    -Sissy's Mom from Haymarket, VA

    Thanks for all of the extra care you have provided for Sissy.

  • The staff are wonderful

    -Fred's Mom from Silver Spring, MD
    Pet Name: Fred

    I've been bringing my dogs here since 1997. The staff are wonderful and my dogs are always happy to go there. When we walk in, the staff immediately recognizes us, which makes me feel good about boarding my dogs there when necessary. The vets are very knowledgeable and very willing to answer any questions and address all your concerns about treatments.

    I moved to Maryland about 7 years ago, but have continued to take my pets there because I just haven't had the same good feeling about clinics I have tried that are closer. Because the vets and staff at Healthy PAWS know my pets' history, I am confident that they will get the best possible care.

    The boarding facilities at Healthy PAWS are also excellent. One of my dogs was diagnosed with cancer last year. Although it wasn't easy for me to leave her when she was sick, when it was necessary for me to be out of town, I knew that she was well cared for staying there. I called to check on her daily and the staff was always happy to let me know how she was doing. The staff and vets also kept in close touch with the oncologist in order to be sure she was getting the correct treatments.
