Mount Vernon Animal Hospital

We're here for you and your pet through the COVID-19 crisis and beyond!

We're located at 8623 Richmond Highway, Alexandria, VA 22309

Phone (703)360-6600 Fax (703)360-9339 

PLEASE SEE OUR NEWS SECTION FOR BREAKING INFO ABOUT SERESTO COLLAR SAFETY AND RECOMMENDATIONS!

We are still offering telemedicine appointments to help you keep your pet healthy without having to leave home! 


You can access these services by calling and arranging a phone appointment, or by setting up a video appointment using Zoom, a free service that allows us to communicate with you via videoconference, so we can see your pet and do an accurate assessment. We WILL be able to prescribe and treat your pet after such visits!


If you opt for a phone appointment, you must email us IN ADVANCE any photos, videos, etc that we may need to make our assessment. We may ask for additional information at the time of the phone call. We may need you to drop off a sample of some kind, which you can do by leaving it in a labeled bag on the south side of the building (on top of the laboratory sample boxes) DURING BUSINESS HOURS ONLY and alerting us via phone that you have done so. Payments may be made over the phone for appointments and lab fees. 


If you opt for a videoconference appointment, please make sure you have registered for a free account with Zoom. You can use your phone, PC or tablet, but make sure you have enabled the audio and video and ideally, practice before your appointment time, so no time is wasted that could be used examining your pet. You can access Zoom via the website or by downloading the app. We may need you to drop off a sample of some kind, which you can do by leaving it in a labeled bag on the south side of the building (on top of the laboratory sample boxes) DURING BUSINESS HOURS ONLY and alerting us via phone that you have done so. Payments may be made over the phone for appointments and lab fees. 


We also offer online consultations for general answering questions and offering general advice. These will not count as an exam and we cannot diagnose or treat based on these consultations. They are for information purposes only and details are available on the consultations page. 

We've been open in South Alexandria, VA since 1972, and we'll be here when you need us. We understand how much your pet means to you; we have beloved pets of our own. Come meet our doctors and find out about the pet care services we offer. 

We're proud to offer complementary and alternative medicine treatments, such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, therapeutic laser treatments and much more. 

In the most recent Washington Consumer Checkbook, we were one of only two animal hospitals in Fairfax County to receive a check for quality and value. We can provide the level of care that works for your family situation.

WE WILL BE OPENING UP FOR CLIENTS​ TO COME INSIDE ON MONDAY, JUNE 7! 

We appreciate your patience while all our staff got their vaccines. We're excited to welcome you back inside. 


Our mask guidelines have not changed, however. 


-Masks will still be required by all for the time being.

-One person per pet can come in (exceptions made for euthanasias only).

-Please call and check in over the phone to minimize the time you will be inside.

-We will still be happy to offer curbside service, if you are more comfortable with that.

-Please do not come in if you are sick.

-Our team members will continue to wear masks for the time being.

-Enhanced sanitation will continue to be done.


We know it's confusing with the new CDC recommendations, but for now, we feel that continuing to wear masks protects everyone.  We understand that many people prefer not to wear them, and for those people, we are happy to continue curbside service.


YOUR HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF YOUR PET IS OUR TOP PRIORITY.  



We also used the last year to give our hospital a little facelift, we hope you like it!
