As restrictions ease in Northern Virginia, we are committed to ensuring safe distancing for everyone. At this time, we will continue our curbside service and safety protocols to ensure the safety of our staff and clients.
For special cases like pets with extreme separation anxiety/aggression, ext. we will now be making accommodations to allow one owner into an exam room. We will be limited on the number of exam rooms, so please let us know at the time of scheduling your appointment. All elective procedures, prescription pickups, and boarding will remain curbside only at this time.
We would like to thank our valued clients for your continued understanding and embracing our curbside service. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and ease or increase restrictions as necessary. We are grateful to all the “essential” workers who have been so dedicated to their jobs through this pandemic.
For Information on our "Curbside Service" please call us at 703-360-6100.
We want to help your pet live a long, happy, comfortable life. Pets are, now more than ever, cherished family members. They need regular physical exams and routine bloodwork just as their humans do but since pets age faster, they need them more often.
Preventing disease is much easier (and less expensive!) than treating disease. Even if your pet seems healthy and has no apparent symptoms, there may be an underlying issue. By having your pet examined and running bloodwork early on, you are helping catch any signs of disease for better chances of successful treatment. Running bloodwork when your pet is healthy, also offers a clear comparison to look at if your pet becomes sick.
Please give us a call, send us an email or text, or request an appointment in person for your well senior dog (7+) or cat (10+) to be evaluated by one of our wonderful, caring doctors! Pets not experiencing any medical concerns are eligible to receive $20 off of this invaluable bloodwork. This promotion runs from November 1 - December 31.
*Symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA) is able to detect loss of kidney function at 40% whereas the traditional tests have only been able to detect loss of kidney function at 75% or greater. On average, SDMA testing allows us to catch kidney disease 9 months earlier in dogs and 17 months earlier in cats.
We hope you will take advantage of this offer and help us help your pet live a long, happy life with you.

At Fort Hunt Animal Hospital, we offer a wide range of services to our pet patients. Our first service, though, is to offer them a stress-free environment for their examinations. We go to great lengths to make our facilities inviting to the pets who visit from our carefully selected staff members to our team of professionals responsible for the care of your pets. Other services we offer include:
We specialize in fear-free services for our pet patients (and their owners) and also offer boarding and grooming services so your pets can associate our offices and facilities with good things in their lives, too.

From the first visit, your pet becomes part of our family. We’ll treat your pet like family, providing exceptional care, heaping mounds of affection upon them, and giving you, as the pet’s owner, the basic tools you need to create a healthy home for your pet.

I absolutely love this place! I can't speak highly enough - I was referred here by 2 friends and am so happy I went. I have had a handful of dogs/fosters, and many vet visits at different places but none as awesome as this place. I scheduled my pups first vet visit with them and not only was the process super easy but the Dr. was extremely knowledgeable and so nice! they were prompt, responsive, efficient and caring. I just couldn't ask for a better experience and look forward to my next visit. Thank you Fort Hunt!...
Can’t say enough great things about them! Very considerate, kind and responsive!
Caring bunch of people. They do very well with kitties.
Great animal hospital. Very friendly and helpful employees. Your pet will be in great hands.
