"I have been going to the vet for about 2 and a half years. The staff and vet are very friendly. They have great customer service and the facility is clean. I really" love the vets and technicians there. It is easy to be seen if you schedule a few days in advance. They are very busy, however.

-Jared B.

and his son Dr.
are both incredibly caring with our pets - and so are all of the vet techs and administrative" staff. They are friendly, upbeat, and very helpful. The vets seem very competent and honest about the treatment and care that our pets need. The other great thing is that we can call with quick health questions and the staff are honest about whether we need to monitor behavior or take them into the office.

Angie's Answers



The first answer is pretty thorough but I would like to add a few points. 

First.. the type of food you are feeding your dog may be the key.  If you are using a food that is grain, rice or corn based in the first three ingredients, please change to a food that is meat or chicken based.  Many dogs are allergic to grain, rice, wheat and corn and these things are used as primary ingredients in many well known, name brand dog foods.  Secondly, all treats that have these ingredients should be cut out.  It takes weeks to months before a food change can show results so you must be patient.  Jumping from one food to another will be counter-productive. 

Some dogs are so allergic to flea or other insect bites that one or two bites can cause a severe reaction.  Once the itching/scratching cycle begins, it is hard to stop it.  Benadryl is good but I suggest liquid form.  You can get it inexpensively at one of the dollar stores.  The pills take time to break down in the digestive system so you get better and faster results with the liquid.One tsp= 5cc and most dogs of average size can tolerate that much and more if the dog is a larger breed.  

Allergy testing is very expensive and most dogs will test positive to some things.  That does not mean that the itching is coming from those things as many things in the environment can trigger positive test results.  Breaking the cycle of itching is primary and that can be done with prednisone ( short term and last resort after benadryl and bathing), allergy shots( same deal, last resort after easier methods).   This spring and summer have been particularly hard, weather-wise.

Good luck!


After you search for the company, you should get the "no results" page. Scroll down just a little bit, and you'll see a button and a link that say "Add this provider." Click on that to add them to the List! Thanks for the great question.
I'm really sorry! It looks like we made some site changes I hadn't noticed before and it made things just a little more confusing (for me, too!). We'll have to look into this to make it easier.
In the meantime, here's what you do:
1) Look for the Submit a Report button. It's yellow and on the right-hand side of the page.
2) Search for the animal cancer care clinic you're looking for. The search box should be inside a yellow bar.
3) You should see a list of potential matches, but on top of those, there should be "add a provider to the List" text in blue, which is where you'll click to get to the add page.

Let me know if you have any trouble. Sorry, again, for this being so confusing.

My dog has been limpling so i took him there. Place smelled bad but its a
vet so i was ok with it. My dog is very friendly lab mix but they made
him put a muzzle on him...then the vet looked at him for less than 5 min
and said he has medial
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
luxation and he needs surgery. And i can
drop him off monday and he will keep him for 5 days and it will cost me
between $800 - $1000. So i said let me think and left.
Called the next day and asked if he would do a x-
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
just to
confirm that is all what is going on prior to this invasive surgery..his
response verbatim.."Thank you for the suggestion but i don't need to do
that"..i said i think its a major surgery so i would feel more
comfortable if we do some confirmatory test.."i am not here to make you
feel comfortable"...SERIOUS. I was so shocked with the response i said
forget it and hanged up.
Called another vet and explained the
issue and made an appointment. As part of that they called him to get
his records...they told the vet they don't know who i am to the
point the vet had to call me saying they where RUDE to them. I had to
explain to the other vet that he didn't take any notes or nothing for
him to provide it.
So he told me i can drop off my dog any monday and he
will have him for 5 days but he has NO records of me. I don't know what
kinda of dogs you service but i will never bring my family member
So far i have talked to 5 other vets in this area and
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
(pricing around) and EVERY SINGLE one of them say at least one

view would be good.

is a good solid vet practice. There is a high turnover in vets, and it can be very busy. However, their pet wellness plan makes it easy to budget for pet care. They also have really extensive evening and weekend hours, which is great for someone who also works.
The vets at
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
also have been very open to discussing the costs and benefits to various treatments as my cat has gotten old and sickly. I probably could spend a small fortune on diagnostic tests, but he is a 17 year old house cat, and the tests won't really change anything about how to treat him. I've had experience with other vets who want to do everything you can do best because knowledge is better.
In general, I have been happy with the care, but it is not a high touch, fancy practice. It is basically retail vet care.
- Katherine W.

Great experience. I was able to get a Saturday appointment the same week I called. They called me the Monday after the appointment to give my my dog's lab results and to ensure he didn't have a negative reaction to his vaccinations. The facility was clean and the staff was friendly. I will definitely use Atlas Vet again.
- Lauren B.

My cat Loki was tagged in the left eye by another feline member of my household. I took him to Union Vet, our regular clinic, but after three visits with no improvement, his vet strongly urged me to take Loki to a veterinary ophthalmologist and gave me a list. I had heard of South Paws and so called there first. I called on Tuesday morning and secured an appointment for the next morning. Every contact with South Paws from that first phone call was incredibly pleasant and professional. Their facility is beautiful. Dr.
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, the veterinary ophthalmologist, was reassuring and just exuded competence. We rolled in at 8:45 AM and were back home by 2 PM. Loki made a full and uneventful recovery. His left eye may always have a little cosmetic defect (only visible if you know where it is) but he can see and he is pain-free.

After the consultation with Dr.
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
but before the procedure, I was presented with an estimated bill and expected to pay it in full. I had dome some research and so was not shocked to see an estimate of $1100. I know this is the kind of thing that causes people to wrote bad reviews but that really is not fair. South Paws is a specialty care facility so it will cost even more than a regular vet clinic. And I don't blame South Paws for expecting payment in advance. This not a charity, it is a business. As it happened, the cost was $300 less than expected and my credit card was immediately refunded. I have pet health insurance which paid the full amount of this procedure less the deductible. I received the check for $700 this week.

They are very caring towards my cat and they are always available to answer questions even over the telephone. I can take appointments whenever my cat is sick or in an emergency within a short notice. It’s clean, well organized and well run. They are little expensive.
- Ellen C.

My dog was getting close to her end of her life and she died. That had nothing to do with the
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
’s care. They were good, competent, professional and very timely which is really important. The only drawback is that they
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
’t have parking. Parking is a challenge. That was the only disadvantage. I was very happy with them. It is a nice, clean clinic. They have multiple vets on staff. I saw the medical director she examined my elderly dog. She reassured me and gave me a medication refill. So she took care of that. I will use this facility in the future.

I can't say enough good things about
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Vet Clinic. The administrative / front desk staff is friendly and efficient. The vet techs clearly love animals. My vet, Dr.
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
, did an absolutely fantastic job on the spay and neuter of my two kitties. I was worried about how much recovery my female would need, but her incisions were tiny. Dr.
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
also is very common sensical and always explains the ups and
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
of procedures / tests. Clearly, the clinic is not out to charge you as much as possible.I was surprised to see some of the online negative reviews about the clinic. A friend of mine has been using them for 25 years and couldn't say enough good things about the clinic, which got me to go.Price is probably a little high, but aren't they high everywhere in DC?

We have been taking our Golden Retriever to
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
Veterinary Clinic since he was a puppy -- almost 5 years now. We have worked primarily with Dr.
Washington Veterinarians Provider Name Locked
and Dr. Mulbacher, and both are very professional an knowledgeable. They clearly care about their patients. The tech staff similarly are gentle and caring. For this particular appointment, I was seen within minutes of my scheduled appointment. I appreciate that they remember us, and they call to check in to make sure our dog is doing okay after a our dog's rabies vaccination.
