SERVICES

Our veterinarian team at Fairfax Animal Hospital provides high-quality pet care services for dogs and cats including boarding, wellness programs, and general care.

General Services

We offer the following traditional services here at Fairfax Animal Hospital.

PET DENTISTRY

We provide pet dental exams as a part of our annual physical check-ups. Depending on what we find during our exams, we may prescribe a professional dental cleaning that includes scaling, polishing and extractions as needed for diseased teeth. We recommend continued at-home dental care for your pet year-round. For your convenience, we sell oral care products at our clinic and offer more tips on pet dental care at your visit and through these helpful videos.

PET SURGERY

We are capable of providing a variety of exceptional veterinary surgery procedures at our state of the art facility in Falls Church. We provide traditional soft tissue pet surgeries such as spays/neuters and mass removal, orthopedic surgeries, and some emergency surgeries.

DIGITAL RADIOLOGY (X-RAY)

X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, heart, bladder, and prostate.  At Fairfax Animal Hospital we are proud to offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film). This state-of-the-art technology allows us to provide you with a quicker diagnosis for your pet. Plus, it uses less radiation than traditional x-rays.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool that uses sound waves to produce images of the body’s internal organs. Abnormalities of the heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, bladder and stomach can be detected using ultrasound, often saving the animal’s life as a result. Fairfax Animal Hospital is an Oncura Partner – a certified pet oncology specialist.

EMERGENCY & URGENT CARE SERVICES

Call Us  Our veterinarians, technicians, and staff are available during business hours to help you get your pet the medical attention it needs. We can accommodate same-day appointments in most cases, depending on the urgency of the situation.

Consider the Symptoms

If you suspect your pet is undergoing an emergency, consider their visible symptoms.

Orient:  Focus in on the primary symptom(s)
Decide:  Contact us immediately!
Act:  After speaking with our staff, follow our timely triage process and recommendations to get your pet the care it needs.

If your pet is experiencing any of the symptoms from this list, they should be treated immediately.

Questions about your pet’s symptoms? Contact us immediately! We’re here to provide assistance to you during your pet’s emergency.

In some cases this may recommend that your pet be transferred to an advanced specialty/referral center based on the severity of their condition.  No matter what, we’ll be here to guide you through the process.

If your pet has ingested something that is potentially poisonous, call the 24/7 Animal Poison Control number – (888) 426-4435

Wellness Services

We understand that the most effective means of providing your pet a long and happy life, while minimizing the lifetime cost of care, is through preventive medicine. This is why we highly recommend regular wellness exams, appropriate vaccines, dental care, and proper nutrition.
