Local Medical Issues
Our pets deserve the best medical care, whether it is preventative, treatment for existing issues, or searching for new solutions. We perform thorough exams on your dogs, cats and pocket pets and then carefully explain the findings to you. A goal of VCA Old Town is client education, so you will become more knowledgeable about the issues that affect your pets, such as illness, parasite control, weight control, aging, and skin and ear allergies. When we bathe dogs and cats we are careful to clean ears, eyes, anals and trim nails - all in a safe, loving environment. We never rush the bath because most dogs and cats really like the extra attention! Our pets need quality care whether they are young, middle-aged, or older. and we are committed to being experts on all aspects of medicine so that you will know that you are getting the best care possible.
Parasites don't take a vacation, so make sure you keep the preventatives going all year round! And be sure that you dogs are protected from airborne contagious diseases such as influenza and kennel cough by asking for the full protection vaccines. Cats at home? Many indoor cats never come to the vet. So many issues can be detected with early testing which keep Fluffy and Sniff safe and healthy their whole lives.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) represents practitioners in the veterinary community who are passionate about the care of cats and supports its members in improving the health and welfare of feline patients. With a reputation as a leader in the field of feline medicine, the AAFP helps veterinary practices establish a feline-friendly environment that reduces stress for cats during veterinary visits.
We harness the scale and strength of our global network while acknowledging each individual's contribution. We work locally to improve the lives of all who interact with our brand.

Homeward Trails Animal Rescue
Homeward Trails Animal Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides pet adoption in Virginia, Washington, DC and Maryland. They find homes for dogs and cats rescued from low-income, rural animal shelters or whose owners can no longer care for them; abandoned hunting dogs who are dumped in woods or left at shelters; owned pets whose owners can no longer care for them; and animals who have been injured, abused and neglected. They actively seek to reduce the rate of euthanasia, support proactive spay/neuter practices, and educate the public about how to care for their animals in a humane way. They facilitate adoptions from local shelters and support a large network of foster care providers who take homeless dogs and cats into their homes, care for them, rehabilitate them when needed, and prepare them for their permanent adoptive homes.Visit Homeward Trails Animal Rescue
