Your animal hospital recs for emergencies

“Pup is great now (it was the little one sick but big brother hasn’t left her side since).”

Melissa asked “Recommendation needed for a DMV animal hospital open on Sunday or for emergencies Monday morning other than Friendship”

Your recs:

“Columbia Pike Animal Hospital in Annandale is 24/7, emergency; been using them for 17 years with 3 pups. They’re great.”

“Blue Pearl in Rockville? There is supposed to be a new one in Georgetown, but I don’t know if it’s open yet”

“I’m not sure how far out in MD but there is an emergency vet called Dogs and Cats in Bowie. We took our Greyhound to then last year and had a good experience. The vet was super nice.

Another vote for these guys. Our regular vet Atlas Vet recommended them for ultrasound. They did our pup’s abdominal surgery after ultrasound showed a squeaky!”

“Blue Pearl in Rockville is open 24/7, have had to use their services in the past. I once went to what is now Dr. Boyd’s in Rockville/North Bethesda, so can’t speak on what they’re like now…but they’re there on Sundays.”

“I saw a new emergency vet clinic-24 h, 2311 M street NW. It just opened. Called vet emergency group 202-946-6469”

“VCA in Gaithersburg has been good in the past, 24hrs too. Pricey but great.”

“Have had good experiences with my pup at both Columbia Pike Animal Hospital in Annandale and VCA Southpaws in Fairfax.”

“Veterinary emergency group on M street went with my friend for her dogs injured paw a few weeks ago they were great”

“Veterinary Emergency Group just opened on M and has great reviews so far, including one from my friend”

“VCA Alexandria was always awesome to my dog and me”

“Southpaws in Fairfax is excellent.”

“Regional Veterinary Referral Center (Springfield Emergency Veterinary Hospital) is very good, emergencies only. On Backlick Road.”

“Dr Boyd’s in Rockville is 24/7 and the best”
