Ballston Animal Hospital values and appreciates the surrounding community and actively participates in a variety of ways to assist area shelters and charities.
Members of the community have shown their appreciation for our work as well, and we were proud to be the recipient of the 2009 and 2010 ABBIE award for the “Best Place To Care For Your Pet” in Arlington County, Virginia In addition, Washingtonian Magazine and its readers voted Ballston Animal Hospital one of the “Best Vets” for the Washington, DC, area in its 2008 poll.
We offer a “Free First Visit” to animals adopted through the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, and to Arlington County residents who adopt from the Washington, DC, Animal Humane Society, and the Washington, DC, Animal Shelter, operated by the Washington Humane Society.
Staff members at Ballston also work with the following community organizations: Golden Retriever Rescue, Education, and Training – GRREAT ; the Arlington Food Assistance Center ; and the Paws Program of the Doorways for Women and Families.
Our veterinarians volunteer their time on the clock, as needed, at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. On occasion, an animal requires extensive medical care, surgery, and hospital care. Some case studies we have taken on include:
"Ballston Animal Hospital is hands down the best experience I've ever had with any vet clinic. Dr. Snow and Dr. Collins are so thorough with my aging cat's needs and I appreciate their mindfulness about cost as well. All the staff from the receptionist area to the vet techs to the vets treat my little girl with the utmost respect and consideration. I'm lucky to have such a great team so close to us!
"Fantastic place - they don't hassle you to buy things you don't need and help you to care for your pet with kindness and a great depth of knowledge. We see Dr. Scher for our dog who has allergies and have only had good experiences here. It's easy to schedule an appointment and get refills. Dr. Scher also keeps up with new developments in veterinary care and the office is always quick to email receipts and vaccination records."
" They fit me in short-notice, held the appointment on time, moved thru the appointment quickly, and I was completely satisfied! My dog was happy while there, and all of the staff were very friendly. Great service!"
" Brought in our new puppy and the Vet spent a full hour with us. Covered every topic imaginable. The staff is great and very kind to all the pets that walk thru their door. "
" Ballston Animal Hospital has been my family's vet for years, and they continue to take great care of all of our pets. Recently, my kitty hurt herself and Dr. Tripp took excellent care of her, and even checked in to see how she was doing later in the evening. Prices are completely fair and reasonable. Highly recommended! "
