    Pet and Home Care
    Great - really good group of pet loving staff. I have used them for over ten years and they have cared for my pets like they were their own. Very responsive and reliable. Highly recommend!

    Shroeder Shearing
    I’ve used Shroeder Shearing at least 2-3 times a year for the past 8 years. Twice a year she shears my goats and then a couple times a year she’ll stop by to trim their hooves. She always does a great job. Could I trim the hooves myself? Sure. But I value having an experienced shearer looking at my animals and offering advice or support. I’ve learned a lot from Anne over the years. She always puts the welfare of the animals first. Highly recommend her. I have a couple animals that are pretty unruly. She never lets it faze her.

    Horners Corner Pet Salon
    Several years ago, one of our neighbors who owned a labradoodle, mentioned that she had used Kelli Horner for years, and was delighted with her service and expertise. Not long after this recommendation, the groomer we were using became ill and would be out for a number of months, providing an opportune time for us to make an appointment with Kelli. On grooming day, I arrived at the shop slightly after 8:00 am with Cleo and some sample pictures showing what we were looking for (there is no standard grooming protocol for labradoodles). Kelli looked at the pictures closely, asked many detailed questions, and made notes on her client card. Needless to say, I was impressed with her desire to provide the grooming we were looking for. When Cleo was picked up a few hours later, she looked beautiful, and had clearly enjoyed her stay. (Well-behaved dogs are allowed to socialize). At this point, our labradoodle has had 23 groomings with Kelli, at 9 to 12-week intervals (starting 5/14/15). Kelli is an unusual groomer in that she keeps detailed notes on her clients, allowing her to produce consistent and exceptional groomings each time Horner’s Corner moved in 2018 to her current location at 370 Maple Avenue West, Suite #3, Vienna VA 22180, (across the street from Amphora); there is plenty of parking in the back of the building complex). We are so grateful that a labradoodle-owning neighbor recommended Kelli, and we have been so delighted, we recommend her whenever possible. Thanks Kelli!

    Hometown Veterinary Clinic
    We've been taking our cats and dogs to Hometown for more than twenty years, and are very happy with the care our pets receive from them.

    The Pet Spa at Barkley Square
    I was a regular customer of Barkley Square for several years. Then I starting taking my dog to a groomer that was much closer (blocks instead of miles) and less expensive (about 2/3 the cost). I noticed that the grooming wasn't as thorough and figured it was a fair trade off for convenience and savings. It wasn't until my Vet noticed that several of the promised services weren't being performed that I decided to start going back. Ultimately, my dog is healthier and I'm happier.

    COMPANION ANIMAL CLINIC
    I had been to Companion once before to have my 18-year-old cat, Babe, groomed. It is difficult to find a groomer who will accept cats, keep cats separate from dogs, and accept rabies and distemper waivers. Due to his liver condition, Babe has a rabies exemption from the VA Dept of Health and a distemper waiver from his Vet. The groomer we had been seeing could no longer accept waivers due to changes in their insurance policy at the beginning of the year. Companion came through for us in all areas: accepted both waivers, kept Babe in the cat boarding area away from dogs, and did a great job grooming him. Recently, we had an emergency which turned out to be a seizure. He had been doing just fine that morning, had eaten, was in an active mood, I was petting him as he sat on a chair when he suddenly was wide-eyed, pupils dilated and just fell over, shallow breathing, not moving, staring. He did not respond. That was when I called the Vet we had been seeing since Babe moved from my mother's in Baltimore in October 2017 to live with me. The Vet is only 5 minutes from my house. They would not be able to see him for another 3 hours or more. I decided to call Companion Animal Clinic since we had been there once before. I was told to bring Babe right in. They are only a 12-minute drive from my house. As I walked through the door one of the women at the front desk got up immediately, came around the desk asking if this was Babe, and then took him back to a tech for some initial tests. After a short time, the tech came out to ask questions about Babe's activities that morning and to get additional info on his history. Not too much longer after that I was taken to one of the exam rooms and met with Dr. McGrath. She said they were running full blood tests, asked me a series of questions, and then said Babe most likely had a seizure. Dr. McGrath said a seizure would generally be due to some other underlying cause like liver, heart or kidney problems. His liver results came back greatly improved over the March reading (they had gotten Babe files from his previous Vet while I was there). Although he has a heart murmur results from his cardio and lung x-rays a few months earlier were all good. Dr. McGrath said sometimes this is a one-time occurrence with a pet, so we hope this won't happen again, but if it does to bring him back immediately. She recommended an MRI but that requires putting the pet to sleep. Babe can't be anesthetized due to his liver condition. The blood tests also showed Babe is slightly anemic (I was told not unusual for older cats), and has low potassium so a med was prescribed for that. Dr. McGrath called the compounding pharmacy we use near Baltimore to request his Potassium med be put in capsule form (our preferred form of meds for Babe) rather than a gel. Dr. McGrath also gave us ear drops for a slight ear infection. A tech cleaned his ears and then applied the first dose to show me how. In just two hours Babe had been given a very thorough exam. It was later that day after getting Babe home I realized just how much had been accomplished during our visit. What is really nice about Companion, in addition to being very responsive during an emergency, is that it is a one-stop clinic. They provide a wide range of veterinary services, offer boarding and grooming, and have an on-site laboratory so you get lab results within 30 minutes rather than having to wait 1-3 days for results to be sent to a lab and returned to the Vet. So, Companion Animal Clinic is now Babe's Vet.

    COLUMBIA PIKE ANIMAL HOSPITAL
    I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CLINIC. I only continued to go because I am partially disabled and couldn't deal with starting all over with a new clinic. My kitty was elderly and just passed two weeks ago. I don't blame the clinic for his passing but dealing with these baboons was horrible. Example: my cat had several bad teeth that needed to be removed. I took him in for an examine, waited in the parking lot (Covid) and when the doctor brought him out I asked how many teeth needed to be removed, he said (wait for it) "I didn't look in his mouth, he may bite me" and I was handed a bill for $300.00 for the visit, vitamin and antibiotic shots. This is only one example, I could go on. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

    COMPANION ANIMAL CLINIC
    Wish I had found Companion Animal Clinic Grooming two years ago. For the 12 years my mother's now 18-year old Persian cat lived with her in Baltimore we never had a problem finding a good groomer. That was not the case when Babe moved in with me in late 2017. It was as if Northern Virginia groomers, at least the three I took Babe too, had never groomed a Persian cat before. It was difficult to find a groomer who would even take cats, who would groom cats and dogs in separate rooms, and who would accept vaccination waivers. Since 2013 Babe, due to a liver condition, cannot be vaccinated for both rabies and distemper. Babe is an indoor cat and does not have any interaction with other animals. Starting in January 2019 the groomer we had been using in Virginia could no longer accept waivers due to changes in their insurance policy. After spending some time searching, Companion Animal Clinic was the only groomer I could find that agreed to accept waivers. Through our Vet we were able to get a Virginia Dept of Health rabies exemption and the Vet provided a distemper waiver. We recently had our first grooming appointment with Companion. Wish I had found them in 2017. This was by far the best grooming Babe received since moving to Virginia. They definitely have experience with Persian cats. There were reasons why I had to delay taking Babe to the groomer so by the time of our first appointment his fur was very long and I was unable to remove the heavy mats that had formed under the top layer of fur on his hips and hind legs. I asked that he be shaved leaving a light layer of fur all over, boots on his lower legs, and had his teeth cleaned. When I picked him up and was told the cost I was very surprised (more like shocked). Not only had Babe gotten his best groom in 2 years, the price was lower than the other groomers we had taken him to or had gotten estimates from. Even though they groom dogs and cats in the same room they did leave Babe in the cat boarding area so he would not hear dogs barking. Babe was there 5-1/2 hours, which was a long time for him so he could not wait to get out of his carrier. Once home he was fine, just very thirsty (he drinks a lot throughout the day and night probably due to his liver condition). I won't have to wait as long to make the next appointment so he won't need as much work. I am so grateful to Companion Animal Clinic for the beautiful groom, for accepting waivers, accommodating Babe's fear of dogs, the amazingly low price, and the absolutely wonderful, and very patient staff. I most definitely highly recommend Companion.

    Maple Shade Animal Hospital
    I followed Dr. Learman when she started her own practice in 1999. Her care and concern for her patients shines like a halo around her. The other doctors and staff are equally caring. The hospital has many accreditations and Dr. Learman practices alternative medicine as well as traditional. Sometimes appointments can run a bit behind because of a previous more complicated problem or emergency. This is balanced by the knowledge that I know if I need the extra time, then I will receive it also. The staff keeps you apprised of such events and does their best to alleviate any issues involved. Their pricing is in the moderate range. I cannot say enough good things about this practice. If you want a veterinary hospital that is focused on the overall well being and good health of your animal , this is the place to go.

    KENWOOD ANIMAL HOSPITAL
    By all means DO NOT take your pet to Kenwood Animal Hospital or Kenwood Canine Clubhouse! I recently went out of town for four days and used Kenwood’s boarding services for the first time. When I went to retrieve my dog on the fourth day, he came out looking like this! (pics attached). No one from Kenwood even NOTICED that both of his eyes were severely red and bulging out more than usual – I only had him in my possession for a few seconds before I realized that something was really wrong. Before I even left the parking lot, I had him examined by Kenwood’s vet (Dr. Cathleen Ciampa). She assessed that he presented bleeding around the eyes and under his eyelids, most likely a result of a subconjunctival hemorrhage – the causes of which can include anything from blunt trauma to the head to excessive choking of the leash. Even in her own notes she described this may be the result of unsupervised trauma!!! The next day I took him to see my primary vet at CityPaws and she assured me my concerns were valid. She dismissed that this could have been the result of an underlying health issues, such as seizures, since he’s never experienced these before, and concluded that the bruising around his eyes indicated that he experienced some type of trauma to the head while in the care at Kenwood. I’m both furious and sick to my stomach thinking about what my poor dog went through. I was a new client, trying out Kenwood’s boarding services for the first time – I hate to think what they do to the animals they treat on a regular basis! Never did I think that this decision to send him to Kenwood would result in this. I chose Kenwood because unlike a lot of the boutique boarding facilities in the DC area, this one was connected to a vet hospital and this would be the safest option should there be an emergency. I understand that accidents happen and DO happen. However Kenwood’s lack of transparency in this situation is absolutely unacceptable. Still to this day, they do not know what happened to my dog, which either indicates 1.) they are understaff to properly care for the pets they receive or 2.) the staff they do have are not properly trained — I’m not sure which one is worse. I implore you to not make the same mistake I did and look for other options for you and your pet.
