Customer Reviews & Testimonials

We know you'll love the experience at Companion Animal Hospital - but don't just take our word for it - below are some reviews/testimonials from our customers.

"I have been going to this vet for almost 2 years. They are the best vets I have ever been to and I move around a lot. I believe all the vets are female. Everyone who works there is very kind and loving toward pets and humans alike. The prices are very reasonable and better than the overpriced vets in Alexandria. They never recommend excessive services and are very mindful of budgets while giving your pets the best care possible. Please give them a try!"

"A personable and highly experienced and knowledgeable vet who cares and a small office where each customer furry or not gets full attention and compassion. What else can one ask for?"

"Been taking my pups to Companion Animal Hospital for over 15 years! It's an amazing veterinary practice! Dr Kelly is a top notch vet! The staff is equally awesome! Thanks for all the years of care, you're the best!"

"BEST VET EVER! We've had both our dogs spayed/neutered by Dr Kelly and we couldn't be happier. Our male Golden had a complicated surgery with three major sutures and so far his recovery has been great. Dr Kelly gave us a complimentary check up after our boy wasn't eating or sleeping. We were really nervous so we brought him in and she assured us it was just the medication; he was ok. He's been getting better and better ever since. She's called to check in multiple times and she followed up with our concerns about the grain- free food warnings that have come out. When my emails didn't go through she called to give me the advice I needed. My husband and I highly recommend Companion Vet Hospital!"

"Always treated with respect and care for me and my pets."

"I'd only take my pet to Dr. Kelly. She is smart, kind, gentle and really loves animals. Her staff is also great. It was a sad day the other day when our kittie went to the great beyond. Dr. Kelly gave her peace--in the most kind and gentle way. She is a great doctor."

"Great service always!"

"I have been to many vets with my dog. I cannot recommend this one enough. The Doctor is smart, straightforward, and thorough. She is honest with you about treatments and their likelihood of success. She is compassionate and warm. I wish I had found her many years ago. Even if you live in the District, she and her staff are well worth the drive."

"hey are great. They remember who you are, and all of them are dedicated animal lovers. If you want a coldly professional, sterile, spotless and super-futuristic practice then look elsewhere. If you want a practice that treats you like family, and you don't mind getting to know the staff on a more personal level with their humanity intact, then looks no further!"

"Very professional and friendly as always!"

"They have been great. They know a lot about dogs/cats. The best thing about this place is the service. They are absolutely amazing."

"I take my 2 year old golden doodle to this place. He gets his annual exams and whenever he's sick, this is the only place where we'll go. Dr. Kelly is amazing. My pup loves them both. The entire staff is great too... super friendly. They're all very attentive and responsive."

"This place is by far the best animal hospital I have ever been to! The doctors and staff are simply amazing! They made my cockapoo puppy and myself feel like family! This will be my forever animal hospital. Thanks for taking care of my sweet little one!"

"Dr. Kelly and her team are amazing! From routine check-ups to acupuncture, I wouldn't trust my dog's care to anyone else. Kind, loving, compassionate and the best place for your pets' care."

"I've been taking my do to Dr. Kelly for 8 years. We have added a cat to the family and Dr. Kelly is gracious enough to see both at the same time. She and her staff love out animals like their own. If dr. Kelly ever relocates, I would follow her in a heartbeat!"

"We trust the techs and the vets and Companion implicitly with our animals. They were our cats' vets from the time we got them at 6 weeks until now. Unfortunately, last year we had to put one of our cats down at age 17, and the vets and staff there couldn't have been nicer and understanding. We've been to other vets since we moved to Alexandria, but we keep going back to Companion. We just can't see us going anywhere else."

"Five stars!"

"The doctors & staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. My pets have always received exceptional care & treatment at Companion. I have often said that I wish I could receive my healthcare from Dr. Kelly and her staff. I couldn't have a higher opinion."

"The staff knew who was coming in. The Doctor took extra time with my concerns."

"You all were very nice and welcoming seeing that it was my first time at your establishment."

"We have been bringing our cat here since last March when he was given to us from a family member who found him as a stray. Not knowing much about his previous 5 years, we depended on the Companion Animal Hospital Staff to determine his health background (as much as possible) for us. We have always gotten in and seen someone quickly when there is an urgent issue. Our boy is a frequent flyer so we have seen all the doctors and probably all the staff members. They are always attentive, listening to our concerns. The doctors explain everything clearly. The front desk has always been welcoming and helpful. Also, I just love seeing that little grey kitty when I come in!"

"I take my Pit here and they are so sweet to him. He loves them so much. Rocky (my dog) is a big teddy bear but people usually are scared of him and avoid him when they meet him. BUT all of the Companion staff is extremely welcoming and loving to him. I'm so glad there's a vet where my dog and I both feel comfortable. I've never had any issues with them and recommend them to all friends and family."

"I have been a client for over 10 years. I always feel that the staff consider my dogs as special. Not that they are, but we are made to feel that way."

"My animals became patients of Companion Animal hospital in 2008-09. From the moment we first took my cat through the doors I have been more than impressed with the level of service provided by all of the staff. Everyone has always been over the top helpful no matter what the situation. I have always highly recommended them to anyone looking for a vet, and will continue to do so!"

"You treat my dogs as if they were your own - that means a lot!"

"Where to begin my with love and appreciation to all the wonderful staff at companion. From the friendly front desk staff, to Laura who always remembers my pup and his favorite treats, and finally to the extremely knowledgeable and professional veterinarians in their staff. They are always very responsive via email and always give me a thorough estimate of cost before I schedule my dogs visit. With my previous experience some offices were afraid of a dog my size and would rush through each visit, here they take the time to answer all my questions and give us detailed explanation for any follow up we need. Thanks for the great treatment to my pup!"

"Love love love companion! I am the ultimate helicopter puppy parent with 4 in our house. Everyone at companion is super positive and helpful. I am a bit of a helicopter mom and Dr Kelly embraces it. She's able to quickly diagnose everything from a minor ear infection to severe allergy and bacterial infections. We have been through so much with companion and they've never let us down."

"My cat got sick late Friday afternoon. My current vet, whom I have seen for many years, couldn't see him until Monday and the receptionist told me to go to the (very expensive) urgent care. Instead I called Companion, even though I had never taken my cats there. They agreed to see us immediately. My cat was treated promptly, with no extra and expensive unnecessary tests. The vet and the staff were very kind, friendly and supportive, even though they had never seen us before. I am seriously considering making them my permanent vet thanks to their responsiveness. Thank you, Companion and staff!"

"A compassionate, caring staff in our hour of need! Our first time visiting Companion Animal Hospital was unfortunately when we had to put down our loving pup of 14 years, who had gone downhill fast in a matter of days. I had already called 3 other vets, who were all booked solid, when I tried Companion; and even though they had a full schedule that day too, the vet agreed to make time for us and fit us in. They could not have been more patient, kind, or caring as our entire family of 4 bawled thru the whole thing. They even made complimentary clay paw prints for our daughters - one for each of them. The handwritten and heartfelt note that we received from them in the mail a few days later just solidified their genuine caring, and the exceptional experience we had there. I only wish that we had found them sooner. Truly a special staff!"

"Companion Animal Hospital has been our Vet for more years than I can remember - and they have loved & taken fantastic care of all our fur babies! We wouldn't dream of going anywhere else!"

"Really nice people, and reasonable rates. It is convenient for me too. The Vet and the assistants are very helpful and informative. I really like this place, and so does my dog."
