Awesome! From start to finish the process was smooth. I was kept in the loop during the dental procedure.

My senior dog 161/2 had four extractions but came home in fairly good condition. She ate and went for walks pretty normal.

I thank the good Dr. Farrell for the procedure.

The quality of care at VCA has rarely been in question. The vets associated with this particular visit were quite competent and obviously quite caring. The support staff also provided their usual, excellent and caring service. To be honest, Alexandria's Animal Hospital's staffing is *the* reason that I keep returning to Alexandria Animal Hospital even though prices have skyrocketed since their acquisition by VCA.

That said, unless your pockets are *deep* I can no longer recommend Alexandria Animal Hospital to anyone for other than after-hours services. Having priced equivalent, non-emergency procedures with other vets, I've found that VCA are quite literally 2-4x as expensive for like-kind procedures performed through other providers in the DC area. And, while their emergency and after-hours fees are equally punishing, it's not exactly like most pet owners are going to be in a state of mind to try to "shop around". To be honest, the current pricing level makes me wonder how many pets have been surrendered and/or euthanized since VCA's acquisition of Alexandria Animal Hospital (due to owners thinking they can't afford appropriate care for their pets).

I came in with an emergency. The intake staff was waiting for us and took our cat right away. I waited very little time to talk to a doctor. The speed with which our cat was cared for alleviated our concerns considerably. She's doing well now and we are very appreciative of all the care she received.

VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital is a first rate state of the art facility. From the vets on the top of the pyramid through the competent staff in the reception area, this animal hospital gets 5 stars! I would recommend anyone to bring their beloved pet here. They are calm, caring and extremely competent.

Our dog was here most recently to be neutered by Dr. Suarez. She has been the main vet for all three of our dogs, and we think she is first-rate.. We also have been pleased with the other vets we have interacted with at VCA Alexandria Animal Hospital.

I was able to drop off my dog early for surgery the other day. Very accommodating - appreciated it very much.

Dr. Krochak has been treating our dogs all of their lives, and the their predecessors, to all of whom my wife and I are but staff. And the admin and techs are always firs-rate, treating the souls as well as bodies.

I have always had the greatest experiences at this hospital. The staff is caring, but efficient. I can't wait to see the newly renovated hospital.

I love the staff at VCA - so kind and always willing to help. It's nice knowing that my dog is in safe hands when we take him there.

Everyone was friendly, but there was a long wait time. I was called into one room 15 min after my appointment for a 5-min check, then back to the waiting room for 10 min before waiting to see the eye doctor for another 20 min in another room. From arriving on time to my appointment until I left was 1 hour 15 min, which is far longer waiting time than other eye doctors.
