We Love Them
Like You Do

The Regional Veterinary Referral Center is located in the heart of the Northern Virginia – Washington, DC metropolitan area. It is a comfortable combination of both old and new. The Emergency Service Department has been well established (since 1985) in the community and is the central connection between you, your pet, your primary veterinarian and the other specialists within the Center. Our facility is well over 9500 square feet and still growing. The Center boasts some of the most advanced diagnostic/treatment modalities offered in veterinary medicine today. We are one of only a few facilities in the mid-Atlantic region to offer an on-site MRI and CATScan service, radiation therapy via a linear accelerator and the presence of a Board Certified Cardiologist, Clinical Pathologist, Dermatologist, Internist, Medical Oncologist, Neurologist, Radiation Oncologist, Radiologist, two Surgeons as well as a Rehabilitative Therapy program complete with underwater treadmill.


The Regional Veterinary Referral Center is also the home of Radiocat – the leading practice nationwide in the treatment of feline hyperthyroidism with radioiodine (I-131). Our state-of-the-art diagnostics, coupled with an in-house laboratory and well trained and dedicated staff, provide the foundation for an extremely effective self-sufficient Referral Center. We are devoted to providing a caring compassionate environment that treats people and animals with dignity, kindness and respect.

While we pride ourselves on our technical advances, we are continually brought back to the human side of veterinary medicine, making the distinction between treatment and care. Not only for our patients but trying to care for our patient’s owners as well. We have made special accommodations such as our “family room” where a client can visit with his/her pet in a quiet atmosphere away from other hospitalized patients during their hospital stay.

The Regional Veterinary Referral Center is a place where you can go in a time of need and be assured that every effort will be made to make sure that all your needs will be seen to during these difficult times.
