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.

At Mount Vernon Animal Hospital, we're passionate about caring for your pet's health. In fact, that's our only focus. We don't sell toys or treats, or (nonprescription) food; we're all about helping you provide the best possible veterinary medical care for your furry friend! We'd love to meet your dog or cat, and partner with you in helping them lead their best possible life.


NEW! We are now offering anesthesia-free dental cleanings for pets who are not ideal candidates for anesthesia, due to age or other medical conditions. Pets must be of a temperament that allows us to work on the mouth while awake, and while the cleaning may not be as thorough as a sedated dental cleaning, we can remove a large amount of tartar and polish the teeth, reducing gingivitis, dental odor and pain.


Did you know that we offer boarding? Our dedicated staff will make sure your pet is healthy and happy. We'll make sure that your pet gets any medication or treatment needed. We leash walk dogs at least 4 times a day and give cats special attention, too. We can also do nail trimming, baths and are happy to do any needed vaccinations at the time of boarding.
