Hometown Care at VCA MacArthur Animal Hospital

At VCA MacArthur Animal Hospital, your pet's health is our top priority and excellent service is our goal. We are located in Washington D.C. in the Palisades near Georgetown. We strive to provide the highest quality medicine to your dog or cat–or both–with a compassionate and professional approach; treating your pet as if he or she was our own. 

Our compassionate staff members believe the better we get to know your pets, the better we can provide the best possible healthcare for them. We are your partners in pet care, and are happy to provide support and information enabling you to give your pet the best possible care at home, including proper nutrition, shelter, exercise, and plenty of TLC.

At every visit, experienced and knowledgeable members of our staff will be very attentive to you and your pet's needs. Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards. Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our patients continue to receive the best in medical care.

For your convenience, we offer drop-off appointments and a Home Delivery service of food and medications. We also have a shelter partnership with The Washington Humane Society (WHS) and when you "round up" to the next dollar, your donation, through VCA Charities, helps fund the continued efforts of WHS.

The staff at VCA MacArthur is constantly seeking opportunities to serve the local community and volunteer for various projects or events. To that end, the hospital currently serves as a drop-off location for Pets of the Homeless, a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to pets of the homeless and less fortunate in local communities across the United States and Canada.

For more information on our current promotions, partnerships, or service projects, please give us a call or send us an email. We would love to hear from you. In the meantime, give your furbabies a hug for us!!
