A Good Place

The employees and Doctors at the Falls Church Animal Hospital are very helpful, accommodating, and caring. I have brought my cat here since I adopted her in 2016 where she has received her shots, check-ups, and dental care. Each visit we have been welcomed in a warm and friendly manner by the staff. The Doctors are great about explaining conditions, procedures, and related costs (absolutes and provisional). The Techs keep my cat calm and ensure that the all Doctors instructions are understood before leaving the facility. A good place to take you pet to get proper care and service.

A Great Visit

I felt the staff took great concern with my cat, who had an upper respiratory track infection. Very importantly, they also took great care with their other clients. Due to a possibility he could have something worse than that, and so other healthy pets were safe, we came in a back way and went immediately to a room without exposing him to any other animals. The vet tech was very good with a very angry cat. Dr. Yam came in, discussed his previous history, asked about his adoption history as well, and we talked about possible ways to prevent infections in the future. I felt her treatment suggestions were in line with how he had been treated in the past, but she also recommended an alternative to steroid shots for inflammation, which I appreciated. All in all a great visit! I was also in and out very quickly too.

Abby’s visit went very well

Abby’s visit to see her doctor at Falls Church Animal Hospital went very well. I was greeted when I walked in with Abby and the wait was minimal since I had arrived early.

Affordable Plans

Our cat was in a lot of pain, and needed dental work. Falls Church Animal Hospital worked with us to come up with a plan that helped our cat but was also affordable. Their communication was excellent – from face-to-face discussions, their detailed quote, and follow-up after the cat’s surgery. Highly recommended!

All of the Doctors are Great

I absolutely love Falls Church Animal Hospital. I have been going to them for the past 15 plus years. Everyone is very friendly and extremely helpful. Most recently I have had the pleasure or having Dr. Puentes, who is just been great with my sweet dog. Dr. McGrath has also been awesome. BUT really all the doctors are amazing! You can’t go wrong! If you’re looking for a new place to take your sweet babies, Falls Church Animal Hospital is the place to go!!!

Always been treated well

Our dog is high anxiety about getting her nails clipped, but our last visit, I couldn’t hear a single whine or wail when they had her in the back.They’ve done a good job figuring out how to work with her and keep her calm. This is a very nice vet and we have always been treated well here.

Always Pleased with this Vet

I have a cat that really does not like going to the vet. The first time i brought her here, the doctor was able to work around her viscous objections to being poked and prodded without resorting to sedation, like the vet i was seeing before required (for an extra 300 dollars!). I have always been pleased with every provider that has to deal with my hellcat and my constant apologizing. I highly recommend this office.
– Melinda P.

Always Return to FCAH

We took our animals here for years when we lived in Falls Church. Since moving to southern Maryland, we use a mobile vet for checkups, but sometimes go back to Falls Church for things that the mobile vet cannot treat. Dr. Jacobs is wonderful with animals (I think he likes them more than people, I can relate to that). And Dr. Yam is great also terrific. I saw Dr. Starke for the first time recently. She was just wonderful with our beagle.
– Jeanie C.

Amazing Vets

Amazing vets and supporting staff. All take amazing care of my furry family members. They have ruined all vets for me. This really is the best place to take your four-legged loved ones.
– Katie H.

Amazing Waiting Room

Awesome Vet with great doctors and a waiting room floor that is amazing! How can a waiting room floor be amazing you ask? By being stable for us to walk on but completely teflon like to my dog claws such that she can go nuts in the waiting room with all the other animals (because she is nuts) and still make it easy to control and guide her. I’m still amazed at the physics of this floor.
– Andrew S.

Animal Whisperer

Our rescue dog is extremely stressed when visiting the vet. Throughout the visit, the staff were very understanding and helped us to calm our dog. The vet herself was amazing, a true animal whisperer, she came over to our dog Gracie and had an immediate calming effect on her, examined her next to me on the bench where I had comforted her for 30 minutes, answered our questions and provided some excellent recommendations for helping to calm her in the future. First class experience for our dog, and for the owners!
– Michael & Maria R.

As always, I am completely satisfied

We have been with FCAH for more than 20 years. There are no more dedicated veterinarians and technicians anywhere in northern VA.

Care and Compassion

My 16+ yr old Lab, Bella fell victim to old age so I decided to take her to Falls Church Animal Hospital to pass gracefully. The staff was very courteous and professional and made her feel like she was right at home. The team treated her as if she was their own pet and gave my family and I all the time we needed to pay our last respects. About a week after her passing, I was surprised to receive a condolence card in the mail…signed by their entire staff. Although this was a small gesture, it meant a whole lot and truly showed the care and compassion they have for everyone human and animal that walks in their doors.
– Ryan J.

Care, consideration, and skill

The care, consideration and skill shown by the Falls Church Animal Hospital staff is superb. Dr. Jacobs carefully explained his procedure and resulting medical evaluation. I left feeling like I learned something and more importantly that our cat had been placed in very good hands.

Chocolate Incident

My beloved Lab helped herself to some chocolate unwittingly left within her reach. The team at FCAH took her immediately, got the chocolate out of her, and sent her home in a few hours. The dog is fine, the price was fair, and I am once again convinced this vet clinic is everything I could ask for. Now, if only I can convince my household to keep the candy out of reach…

Dr. Jacobs and Staff are Terrific

As always, a great experience. Dr. Jacobs and the staff are terrific, and really know how to work with my nervous little cat.
– Tim F.

Dr. Jacobs is Wonderful

We have had Boxers for more than 30 years and all of our dogs have been patients at FCAH. Dr. Jacobs knows us, has known all our dogs and is wonderful at explaining things to us. Yesterday, our 18-month old Boxer seemed to be having a reaction to the vaccinations she received earlier in the day. While dogs are usually droopy/lethargic after shots, this was different somehow. We were worried about her, so we brought her back in. Dr. Jacobs took her temperature, listened to her heart, looked at the color of her gums and determined she was OK. We went about our way — embarrassed for the nervousness, but relieved she was fine. I know he must hear whiney owners every day, but he was kind and did not make me feel ‘crazy’ for being worried enough to bring her back. Thank heaven, she is rowdy as ever today — back at work making sure our yard is a squirrel-free zone!
– Anonymous

Dr. McGrath has a Cheerful Attitude

The checkup visit for our elderly male cat was excellent and Dr. McGrath treated him exceptionally well. The staff was professional and courteous and I truly appreciate Dr. McGrath for her caring and cheerful attitude. If our cat could talk, he would probably say my checkup was purrfect!
– Anonymous

Dr. McGrath is Wonderful

Dr. McGrath is wonderful with my 17 year old furbaby! The most important thing for me is that she discusses my cats health with me instead of dictating care. The staff is always helpful and responsive.

Dr. McGrath Truly Saved My Dog’s Life

We have used FCAH for a number of years and we highly recommend them. The staff is very welcoming, caring and professional. Dr. Kimberly McGrath is excellent. She is very thorough, precise, patient and knowledgeable in answering all of your questions. Our dog is a 11 year old German Shorthaired Pointer (Beau). Beau was trembling, lathargic, not eating and grumbling as if in pain. Dr. McGrath couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary but suggested an x-ray. She found a huge mass in his stomach which had fluid surrounding the mass. She immediately sent Beau to have emergency surgery. She called ahead to the surgeons and emailed Beau’s records so no time would be wasted. We were not sure Beau would survive the surgery. The procedure that needed to be done was very delicate. Thanks to Dr. McGrath’s expertise, Beau is back home after 5 days. He’s eating, wagging his stubby tail and his eyes are bright once again. We are so thankful. Dr. McGrath truly saved Beau’s life.
– Diane F.

Dr. McGraw Was Compassionate

Had just moved to the area from out of state when my cat became ill with what was later believed to be a brain tumor. Falls Church Animal Hospital was always able to fit Buddy in for an appointment as his condition worsened. All the vets, techs and staff were very caring during the last month of his life and Dr. McGrath was especially compassionate when it was time to euthanize Buddy.

Dr. Yam is amazing

All of the vets at Falls Church Animal Hospital are great, but Dr. Yam is amazing. She was the main vet that I saw the day I had to say goodbye to my beloved Golden, Maizy, last fall. I saw her for the first time since then yesterday with my new pup, Hazel, and it was bittersweet. Dr. Yam is a wonderful vet. She’s knowledgeable and friendly and great about answering my questions. It’s vets like Dr. Yam that keep me coming back to FCAH. Thank you!

Easy to schedule an appointment

It was easy to schedule an appointment and we (Skippy and I) were greeted cordially and seen punctually. Skippy can be a difficult patient but the vet’s assistant knew exactly how to handle him as did the vet. This was the most pleasant trip to the vet we’ve ever had (yearly check-up) and as I mentioned, that’s not easy because Skippy can be such a difficult patient. The check-out process was easy and everyone was very kind and caring.
– Margaret W., customer since 2009

Efficient and Friendly

Great customer service ! very efficient very Friendly went above and beyond to make sure my cat looked great and was sincerely concerned of her well being! The main reason I love the office is the warmth and the true concern of your pet they make you feel like family! the box stores that sell pet supplies that also provide medical for pets seem not to be as concerned it is a revolving door, you feel like the pets are not getting there full attention And i must say Falls Church Animal Hospital does this each time i give them a score of 100 percent A+ if you really love your pet and want the best for them then go see the great people at Falls church animal Hospital !!

Excellent Care

I stopped by to pick up a package of Dasuquin Advanced Soft Chews for my dog Annie Laurie and the Front Desk Staff had them all ready and waiting for me. They also gave me a Mail In Rebate Form which I very much appreciated. Everyone on the the Falls Church Animal Hospital Staff are exceptional. They treat all of us pet owners like members of their own family and they give our pets excellent care.

– Kerry C.

Experience Was Seamless

From the time we checked Poopus and Chunklette in for their teeth cleanings to the time we picked them up later that day, the whole experience was seamless. As always, Naomi and Corine are wonderful–so professional and so lovely. Corine sent me the appropriate forms by e-mail prior to the appointments, so that streamlined the admissions process. In the past, I have observed the teamwork that takes place behind the reception counter, as when appointments have to be rearranged because someone has called in sick unexpectedly. It is poetry in motion. Dr. Jacobs did a wonderful job with both our cats; their recoveries have been what looks to be pain-free. They are both eating and galavanting! Dr. Jacobs called me after Poopus’ extractions, filling me in on what had needed to be done, as well as assuring me that all was well and that he was recovering beautifully. We have been coming to Falls Church Animal Hospital for many, many years, even traveling from Herndon because we wouldn’t trust any other folks with our animals as we do the folks at FCAH.
– Linda F.

Expert Care

I’ve been coming here since 2002, always excellent service, staff and docs are amazing. Doesn’t matter which doc, I always have a good experience and expert care for my dogs. They even made a donation in one of my dogs name (she recently passed on at the age of 16) to a vet school, so I was pleasantly surprised by that as well….they always exceed my expectations.
– Christiana W.

– Anonymous

Extremely Helpful

Staff was extremely helpful with my puppy who was there to have his nails clipped. He was so anxious that they couldn’t clip his nails without sedation. They gave it their best efforts but they didn’t want to stress him any further. I applaud their efforts. All the staff at Falls Church Animal Hospital are very caring and helpful.
– Debbie K.

Extremely Satisfied

My wife took our newly adopted Yorkie mix to Falls Church Animal Hospital yesterday for her new patient visit and was extremely satisfied. The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Everyone took the time to answer her questions and provided good resources for services we may need outside of healthcare. We are very happy this is the Veterinary Office we chose to care for our animals.

Falls CAH is a well-oiled machine

Falls Church Animal Hospital is a well-oiled machine! We brought all 8 cats in; Dr. Rogers and Cynthia were fabulous–they had everything prepared down to a gnat’s heel!

FCAH did a great job

We have an old dog with a tough diagnosis and Falls Church Animal Hospital did a great job pinpointing what was wrong and working with us until we got to the right answer. Very happy with the quality of their doctors and the friendly helpful manner of the office staff.

FCAH does it well

I am always made to feel special when I come to the FCAH. Yesterday I noticed at least one family there with a very sick dog and I really gained an appreciation for the delicate dance the doctors and staff must do each day to be kind and sensitive to ALL clients. From one minute to the next, they are dealing with people full of great expectations for their new pets as well as those with pets nearing the end of their lives. Not easy, but FCAH does it well.

– Elizabeth G.

FCAH is Terrific

We have taken all our pets, dogs and 2 cats, to Falls Church Animal Hospital since 1985 on the recommendation of our neighbor, Audrey Snell.She had high praises for Dr. Rogers’ care of her cat. All the doctors, care attendants, and office staff are terrific; plus they all love their patients. My two Llasa Apsos have never been afraid when we go there for appointments.
– Mary M.

FCAH is the best

Gave my pup plenty of love as well! Great service, friendly ladies who helped find a solution to my problem of need medication on short notice.

Gentle Treatment

I can always count on seeing a vet close to the appointment time, so little waiting is involved. Dr. Wolfe examined my cat and discussed her special diet and her weight gain thoroughly. In addition, she recommended a supplement for my cat’s arthritis. Ricki was treated gently and affectionately.

Genuine Care

If I were to create an animal hospital, it would be just like this one. We’ve taken numerous pets there for twenty-some years. They genuinely care.

Genuinely care about their patients

My dog has been a patient of FCAH for years. The doctors and the staff are professional and polite, and most importantly, they genuinely care about their patients. ​

Glad to Have Found Them

I am new to the area and just visited Falls Church Animal hospital with 2 of my pets. The staff could not have been nicer to me or my four legged friends. Dr. Jacobs did an exam on each of them and the only thing I was charged for was my dogs Bordatella vaccine. I look forward to bringing my other 2 pets to see them in a few weeks. So glad to have found them.

– Susan T.

Going out of their way to keep me informed

Buster was badly injured while I was away but he got excellent care and was recovered by the time I got home two weeks later. I was in England and would have cut my vacation short but for the updated info and pictures that were sent to me. I felt reassured that Buster was in the best of hands and was able to enjoy the rest of my stay. Thanks so much to Dr McGrath, Mary Ann and the entire staff for taking such good care of my boy and going out of their way to keep me informed.
– Margaret H.

Good experience and service

Good experience and service. Dr. Rogers was calm and reassuring and explained everything well. He called back with test results the next morning. We brought Charlie in because of a change in activity and behavior.
– Sandra G., customer since 2001

Good people

Everyone in your office was very helpful and accomodating. Dr. Jacobs took excellant care to minimize the stress on our puppy and was very gentle with her. Kudos to the entire staff! Good people!
– Richard E., customer since 2001

Good Recommendations

The exam was through and complete. Both Dr. Puente and the veterinary technician were easy to talk to and made some good recommendations. Most impressively, they both were able to put my dog at ease, and he does not/not like visiting the vet. He was quite relaxed. The team at the Reception desk was quick and thorough, as they always are. Good job Everybody.

Good Value with Wellness Program

Unrushed. The staff and doctors take the time I need and that my dogs need! The staff are so good and on-the-ball. And I feel like my dogs are getting the best care available. With the wellness programs, I’m getting really good value.
– Jan R.

Got us in right away

Great! Got us in right away and puppy is feeling so much better today!

Grateful Owners

We have been taking our cats here for years. The doctors are always caring and compassionate and take time to understand not only the needs of the cat, but the needs of the owner. Recently, we had taken our cat to a dental specialist, who removed a number of his teeth and gave us a pain medication we were supposed to put into the inside of his cheek. When we had trouble giving him the medication, the specialist was very condescending and unhelpful. We brought him to Falls Church, and Dr. McGrath told us that there was a version of the same painkiller that could be given as an injection in his scruff that would last 3 days. We were very grateful, and so was our cat.
– Amy B.

Grateful Visitors

Our bichon needed to see a vet while we were traveling. Falls Church Animal Hospital was closed to us and we took a chance. From the initial phone call, where they worked him in during a booked day, to the wonderful treatment our dog got from them, and the free first visit (unexpected!), this was a quality experience. My husband commented, “Can they be our vets from now on?” (Wish they weren’t hundreds of miles away.) We recommend Falls Church Animal Hospital highly. If they treat clients half as great as they treated us (strangers), this is a place you can trust with your pet. We’re grateful for their caring treatment, exceptional care and superior-quality service.
– Sue P.

Great annual exam

Dr. Jacob’s gave my dog a great annual exam and the veterinary tech was also so helpful providing me with information about the care of my dog. ​
– Anonymous

Great Annual Package

Absolutely love this clinic and the staff. I’ve always felt like family here and they go above and beyond to make sure your furry one is cared for. Even after moving away from Falls Church to Gaithersburg, MD, I STILL make the drive to this vet for my dogs because they are so wonderful and have a great annual packages that I haven’t been able to find elsewhere. When you have an appointment that day, they write your animal’s name on the cute light up board near the front desk with some kind of drawing– small touch, but makes it more homey and personal! Without a doubt the best vet I’ve taken any of my dogs to in 25 years.

–  Taylor H.

Great as always

Great as always. Dr. Murphy has done a wonderful job in dealing with my cat’s skin issues – exploring all possibilities and never rushing in to anything. I’ve taken my pets to Falls Church Animal Hospital for over a decade and always had great doctors.
– Heather M.

Great Boarding Experiences

We use Falls Church Animal Hospital to board our dog when out of town. So far we’ve had nothing but fantastic experiences (over 10+ weekends of boardings so far). We plan to use them for boarding as long as live in the area.

I Love Both of The Vets

Great Grooming Experience

I took my cat into the groomer. She was very helpful in answering my questions.

In understanding when I asked so many questions about my cat.

Great Staff

Staff are all great to work with however Naomi makes the trip totally worthwhile. Miss the days when Falls Church was just a little town and people were warm and friendly. Naomi is that warm person who always makes the visit feel personal. She really cares about the customers and the pets. Helpful and open, Naomi always recognizes customers and makes it personal. What a relief from the dry, dull impersonal interactions I suffer the rest of day. In addition to the good services here, Naomi keeps me coming back.

My dog had a very, very thorough exam. Had a chance to talk about a few challenges she has (frequent upset stomachs) and some things to try to help her. Great visit.

Great Walk-In Experience

Everything was great. I came in without an appointment and a doctor was available in just a few minutes. The doctor was great – had my dog diagnosed and scheduled for surgery right away. She called me early the next morning with results of his blood tests as well. Overall it was a great experience.

Happy Pup

Cooper came in for a routine procedure with the vet tech. He was seen promptly and returned to me a happy pup.

– Kaye & Bob R.

Happy with Dog’s Care

Our visit for our dog, Rylee, was great. Rylee experiences extreme anxiety at the vet in anticipation of having her temperature taken. During this visit, I was very happy that the doctor (Puentes) said that Rylee would not need to have her temperature taken at this and future visits unless necessary to asses symptoms of an illness. The doctor explained that Rylee would have blood work, in addition to her annual vaccinations. Rylee has an ear infection, so the doctor provided instructions on treatment, and I received the ear cleaning solution very quickly as I was checking out. I am very happy with the care Rylee received.

– Margaret S.

Happy with our Decision

We found Falls Church Animal Hospital when our beloved basengi became very ill and had to be put to sleep. They were so kind and we knew when it came time to find a new dog that they would be our new vet practice. We now have two dogs and could not be happier about our decision.

– Tammy J.

Highly recommend

Have gone to this clinic for 16 years for both my doxies. Excellent staff and quick attention. Dr. Rogers and his staff have their acts together. They will be upfront and factual and yet very caring with your pet. Highly recommend. Can’t go wrong with them.

– Frances A., customer since 2001

Highly recommend this establishment

I would highly recommend this establishment! I had a last minute cat emergency and I called in as a new patient/walk-in. The staff was very accommodating and flexible to work with my availability. I was able to have him seen the same day! Also, during the visit the doctor and staff were very helpful and informative and I will definitely be making this my new official vet. 5 stars all the way!

Home very drowsy and goofy

Louie came in for a bath and had to be sedated. Home very drowsy and goofy, as expected! He also came home looking and feeling very nice. He was well bathed, smells great (probably not to him!), has beautifully cleaned ears, nice short nails, and is shedding less. Thanks you so much for the attention this guy received. I have recommended FCAH to several people, and in fact one, with her poodle and cavalier, is now a client of yours. See you in a few months for the next bath!

– Cecilia C., customer since 2011

I always have a good experience

I had a wonderful experience

I had a wonderful experience. The staff fit me in for an appointment at the last minute and the doctor was able to assess and correct the issues my dog had been struggling with. I would and have always recommended Falls Church Animal Hospital to my friends.

– Barbara A., customer since 2001

I have never been disappointed with them

My recent visit with my 9 year old cat for his annual examination and necessary inoculations was pleasant, very professional and complete in every way. I have been bringing my pets to FCAH for over 30 years, and I have never been disappointed with the care they have received. The people manning the front desk, the techs who work in the back, and the outstanding vets have always been competent, friendly, helpful and kind. I continually recommend FCAH to anyone who asks me where they can find a good place to treat their pets.

– Shirley R., customer since 2001

I have recommended FCAH

As a long-time patient/client (30 years!) at Falls Church Animal Hospital, I have always felt that my pets (from gerbils to cats and dogs) are given the best care and concern. As long as I have a pet, I will come to Falls Church Animal Hospital. I have recommended Falls Church Animal Hospital to several families in Arlington and Falls Church.

– Barbara W., customer since 2001

I Highly Recommend This Vet

We had a wonderful experience with this vet. Everyone was always friendly and provided good service to us and our dog. Just recently we had to make the difficult decision to euthanize our dog. They made the whole experience as easy as possible every step of the way. Highly recommend!

– Kate K.

I love this vet

I love this vet. It’s small which is great because I know Penelope will get the one on one treatment. At times it can be a little pricey but knowing the extent that these doctors go to make sure every pet is healthy makes it worth the money.

I recommend FCAH

I totally love all the people at FCAH

I totally love all the people at The Falls Church Animal Hospital. Cheryl, Brooke, Kristin, Jessica, Naomi, and all the others have been so pleasant and helpful. It is obvious how much they all really care about the animals and their “humans”. We have been coming to The Falls Church Animal Hospital for the last 15 years. Dr. Rogers and Dr. Michelle Kelly helped us raise and put down our first two dogs-DJ and Stella. Gigi is our newest puppy and Dr. Rogers and the entire staff welcomed her warmly. I trust Dr. Rogers implicitly. He is kind, compassionate and gentle.

– Susie L., customer since 2001

I Trust This Vet

I love this Vet, having animals all my life. This vet has everything you would need in a vet. The customer service is exceptional.

TRUST is important and I trust this vet very much. They treated my pets as there own. Thank you Falls church Animal Hospital for all these years and love. And the Lady that grooms my cat, she’s wonderful, always comes to get the cat and smiles and polite!

I was very pleased with my first visit

I was very pleased with my first visit to FCAH. The reception staff were all very nice and attentive. Both check-in and check-out were very quick.  I really appreciated the time Dr. McGrath spent with Lucy going over her history and current issues and how she really considered all of her symptoms together instead of as separate issues. I look forward to future visits!

– Anonymous

I would refer FCAH

We’ve received quality care from FCAH the past four years. We appreciate that appointments are serviced on time, the facility is clean, exams are thorough, and the staff is professional. Our dog recently had an appointment with Wally and Dr. Jacobs. They were friendly, answered all our questions and provided a comprehensive exam while demonstrating obvious care and love for animals. We have visited other vets in the past that are closer to our house or open longer weekend hours, but are routinely reminded that other facilities don’t offer the same care. I would refer FCAH to any of our family or friends.

Kind, professional, and efficient

Staff were kind, professional, and efficient. I brought my dog in with a serious skin problem in a sensitive area. Besides providing a diagnosis and prescriptions, Dr. Murphy spent some time removing all the matted hair in the area. Not an easy task for this breed. I’m happy to have my dog on the path to recovery.

– Kevin H.

Kind, Professional and Helpful

Our cat was sick and Dr. McGrath made time to fit her in between other appointments. She always remembers us and our cats and is kind, professional and helpful. The front desk staff and vet techs are also always friendly and professional.

– Ali & Jason MH

Kind, professional, and welcoming

The Silver Whiskers program really paid off for us today. I brought two cats in and was not charged anything for one because it was just a quick exam. For the other, Francesca, we were only charged for the grooming, sedation and medicine to treat her skin condition. There was no charge for the visit. I always sort of wondered if that Silver Whiskers program was worth the expense. Today I found out that it was!! I didn’t know FCAH had a groomer on site and, wow, she was great! She had to cut all of Francesca’s fur off, but she did it in a way that makes here still look good — not bald. She actually looks cute with her new cut. Everyone at the FCAH is kind, professional and welcoming.

– Elizabeth G., customer since 2001

Kind, Thorough, and Accommodating

Our cats both had a couple health issues which turned out to be minor, but they got us in the same day and worked with me on diagnosing the problems without it costing a bundle. The veterinarian was kind, thorough, and accommodating.

Kudos for Drs Jacob and McGrath

Like Family

I have been going to Falls Church Animal Hospital for several years with multiple animals. They are always kind and care for their patients like they were family. They were there for us when we had to make the hard decisions of putting our animals down when their time had come. They offered their thoughts and prayer and made donations to training programs and research in our pets name. We just had to take my girl in for a knee problem and they were so good with her and reassured us that she was going to be okay with some TLC. I recommend them to any of my friends and family that need a good vet who will care for and love their pets like family

Mandy was Gentle and Kind

I had a great experience at my grooming appointment. I was a nervous cat mom bringing in my long haired himalyan for the first time to be de-matted. Mandy, my groomer, put my nerves at ease as her love for animals was obvious. She was gentle and kind with my scared cat, who came home looking fresh!

– Jaymie T.

Naomi is Wonderful

Falls Church Animal Hospital is the best veterinary care my dogs have ever received. They’ve used routine exams, immunizations, and boarding. Both dogs are 14+, one dog, Fred, is ill, multiple problems, and he’s stable on daily care, but I have their back-up when I need them.  The other dog, Maggie, is pretty good but stubborn. I must say that, in particular, Naomi has been wonderful for me and my dogs. She remembers us each time we come in, and she remembers to ask kindly about a recent family tragedy. She’s wonderful, really wonderful.
Thank you for your care.

– Margaret B.

New Client

My recent experience at Falls Church Animal Hospital was extremely positive. I am a new client and Dr Wolfe was not only extremely friendly and professional, but patiently explained her diagnosis and worked with me to develop a great plan for my Dog Kyna’s continued care. I look forward to continuing to work with FCAH and Dr Wolfe!!!

– Woody H.

New Patients

FCAH was fantastic. We are new patients and we couldn’t be more pleased. The staff was friendly and helpful in scheduling. The tech went above and beyond to help carry our dog’s crate back to my vehicle. Dr. Wolfe spent so much time with our dog, answering all of my questions, and providing lots of extra information. We will be recommending this facility to all of our friends!

– Tracey V.

Nice,friendly, and calming

Outstanding as Always

As always, FCAH was outstanding. Naomi was as supportive as ever and got our Jack Russell in and out quickly. Dr. Jacobs is fantastic. He and Dr. Rogers (since retired) have taken excellent care of our canines for the last 26 years. That says it all!!

Over 50 years of satisfaction

“I have been going to Falls Church Animal Hospital since I was 8 years old. I haven’t even considered another veterinary practice. I have had just over 50 years of satisfaction with this practice.

– Sharon S.

Personal Attention

My dog was hurting. Naomi was able to get me an appointment same day. Dr. Wolfe was delicate and concerned about my pet and helped comfort while diagnosing him. He’s resting well with meds right now. Hopefully heading toward nothing worse. Thanks for your personal attention.

– Christine R.

Personal care

Dr. McGrath (with the assistance of Faith) helped Albert and Isaac gently through their kitty anxiety during a regular checkup.  We got information, with professionalism, that reassured us that our kitties’ health was good for another year. The Playful Paws program seems well worth the insurance it provides, with many “free” options. We look forward to many more checkups with Dr. McGrath, despite my cats’ case of the “wriggles.” It amazes me of all the many situations she faces while caring all sorts of animals, and of the personal care she gave our cats. We hope to see her into the cats’ older age.

– Loren B.

Pet Care Program Saves Money

We have always received prompt, considerate care for our Goldens at FCAH. The doctors and techs have been responsive to our questions and listened to our concerns and observations. We have never felt pressured to purchase the pet care program but have found it to save us money. If I have a concern, I don’t have to worry about the cost of an office visit. We are preparing to relocate and I sincerely wish we didn’t have to leave FCAH

Dr. Rodriguez, is a wonderful Vet and I look forward to seeing her, the assistant and front desk :)

Rambunctious Shadow was back

Shadow was scheduled for a dental visit, but had been acting odd over the weekend. It was determined that he was experiencing back pain, and out of concern due to his age we decided to postpone the dental visit and give him a dexamethasone injection. Shadow was back to his normal rambunctious self that evening, and his dental visit has been rescheduled for next week.

Responsive Staff

My 6-month old kitten was choking badly and I called to say I was bringing him in. When I got there, there was a team waiting. I could not have been more impressed with the responsiveness or professionalism of the staff. It turned out that whatever it was got swallowed just before we arrived, so the result was somewhat anticlimactic. However, I could not have asked for more from people that obviously care as much about my pet as I do.

Responsive to Special Needs

I’ve been able to make appointments on a same-day basis for issues of immediate concern (on a regular business day) which is a very positive point.  I’ve found that the staff is very responsive to special needs for my dog, and I like the vet I have been working with, who tells me in plain language what is happening, and goes over the meds and dosing very clearly. So far, so very good!

Sensitive and Kind Staff

My wife has been bringing her pets here for over 51 years! I have been coming here for over 20 years.

We will continue to use FCAH for our canine family members. Staff kindness and sensitivity mean a lot to us.

So grateful to them

I usually have Dr. Rogers, whom we’ve had for 30 yrs. and treasure. He was out, today, and Cleo had to be treated for an ear infection. Dr. Sachs Yam cared for her and her treatment was super. I’m so grateful to Fall Church for all of the superb treatment they administered to our dogs, over the years.
