About Animal Place Veterinary Hospital
Small animal veterinary hospital which practices both traditional and Chinese Medicine in the Aspen Hill area of Silver Spring. We see all small animals--dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice and just about anything else with fur. Our motto is "Compassionate Care for pet and owner" and we follow this motto on a daily basis.
Two and a half doctor practice (owner is the half--but always around), we bounce ideas and things off each other and respect each other's ideas. Still learning--we believe change is good and are always looking for ways to improve and be challenged.
Respect is the cornerstone of the practice--respecting not only our clients but our staff and fellow doctors. Utilizing as much fear free methods as possible we work to minimize the trauma our patients may feel when walk in the door.
Animal Place Veterinary Hospital opened it's doors in 1997 and we have enjoyed the community's support every since that first day. Located in a strip mall off a busy intersection allows our clients to "pop" in to just say hi at times--as well as go shopping while we treat their pet.
Using both our full in-clinic blood chemistry as well as digital radiographs, allows us to dia...gnose problems rapidly and get our patients the care they need and deserve. We have great specialists close by and refer to them as often as needed. With NO after hours calls and a rotating weekend schedule, our doctors are able to maintain a good balance between home life and work. APVH prides itself on being a family friendly practice!
