At Fort Hunt Animal Hospital, our veterinarian team has been proudly serving the Alexandra and surrounding areas since 1985. Our goal is to provide your pet with the highest possible level of care, all while ensuring that both you and your pet always feel welcome and comfortable here in our office. We understand that your pet is a member of your family, which is why we go out of our way to treat your pet as one of our own.
Our focus is on preventative care to maximize your pet's overall health and wellness. We believe that in order to provide the best veterinary care, we also need to have the best of the best of professionals on our veterinary staff. You can rest assured that our staff of doctors, licensed veterinary technicians, veterinary technician students, veterinary assistants, and client care specialists all have one top priority: your pet's well-being. Whether you're bringing your pet during an emergency situation or for a routine wellness exam, your pet will always receive the compassionate care that he or she deserves.
We also understand that coming into the vet's office can be an inherently stressful experience for many pets; this is why we are utilizing Fear Free techniques in order to create a stress- and anxiety-free atmosphere for patients, clients and staff.
No matter what your pet's needs may be, we're here to help with a wide range of animal care services offered right here in our office. In terms of preventative care, we're happy to offer wellness exams, which we typically recommended once to twice a year (depending on your pet's age and current health). We also administer vaccinations and immunizations to protect your pet from diseases and conditions such as rabies and distemper. Furthermore, our pet dental services are great for helping your pet maintain a healthy mouth.
Our full, in-house laboratory allows us to conduct any number of diagnostics right here in our office; this means a shorter wait for results, since we don't have to wait for another lab to send us a report.
