Our Mission

We are committed to providing the quality care that your pet deserves. We understand that your pet is a very important member of your family, which is why we treat your pet as if it was our own. We are AAHA-accredited, have Fear Free Certified Professionals on our team, and are a Certified Cat Friendly Practice by the AAFP. Our goal is a stress-free visit for every pet, every time. We are primarily a small animal veterinary hospital. We see dogs and cats most often, but we are also happy to see your exotic pets--birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, and others--so keep Fort Hunt Animal Hospital in mind when searching for a veterinarian for all of your furry family members! We also provide boarding services for pets while their families are away. Boarding pets have immediate access to health care if needed, as well as a trained and experienced staff to keep your pets healthy and happy on a daily basis. Let us know how satisfied you are with our services by reviewing us on Yelp or Google! Or, send us an email to let us know if there’s anything we can do better.

A note of recommendation and public thanks: We lost our darling Irish girl today and I want to publicly thank Fort Hunt Animal Hospital for their care during this time. We moved here just months ago and our girl was leaping with joy to move to Fort Hunt. We had found her quite the yard and she approved. She had three months of lovely walks here, playing in all the landscaping and exploring the backyard that though well landscaped she claimed as her own personal jungle. She began to act unwell just a few weeks ago and Fort Hunt Animal Hospital treated her as though she had always been a patient and at age 13 and a half gave us all the option that were before us. She was diagnosed with advanced Lymphoma. She has been home with us and today to minimize suffering we made the heart breaking choice to let her go knowing that she was so stubborn and willful that she would never want to leave us. Often people ask about vet recs and I can't recommend Dr. Erin Phoenix or Dr. Christine Bradley as well as Nikki who was with us today as we said goodbye. If you are looking for a good practice, look no further. We don't deserve dogs. Our Bailey had done 6 PSC moves, lived in 3 different states, spent summers in Missouri and Kansas with family, raised 3 fine children (I was only the helper), and was the one stable thing in a Mil family that has constant change. We are so grateful to Fort Hunt Animal Hospital for walking us through this time and the compassionate care they gave our girl.
