★★★★★ Daliah fine a** gave excellent service with a great smile! We love her everytime we come.Domonique B.Domonique B. ★★★★★ Dr Makhijani and Carly were amazing! My cat and I came in as a new patient and she can be very challenging with anyone except me. We were able to do the full exam, shots & bloodwork while keeping my girl as happy as possible. Dr Makhijani spent so much time explaining all the treatment options, pros & cons, and answering my questions. So glad I switched to District Vet Brookland!Cait O.Cait O. ★★★★★ My wife and I recently moved to DC and needed to find a new vet.

They are always so friendly and knowledgable - no question is too big or too small! Garbanzo (our dog) is always hesitant to go in with all of the other animal smells, but once he's in, we can't get him to leave! He loves hanging out with the staff there.

Our cat was seen by Dr Makhijani and Technician Andrew.

Dr. Hassell and the nurses seem to genuinely care about their furry patients- I always felt my cat was in good hands. The front staff are usually friendly and proactive- meaning they make sure all customers have been taken care of or they’re cleaning the hospital. By the way, the hospital is always clean and in good condition. When I email them, they always respond. I never had an issue with them. If I ever get another pet again, I’ll definitely go back to them. They even work with the cremation place so you can pick up the ashes there instead of driving 2 hours way.r ng L.r ng L. ★★★★★ We've been coming here for years and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. My dog doesn't like vet visits and resists going to get his shots but the staff exercise patience and extreme care with him. Thank you.Pamela M.Pamela M. ★★★★★ Phenomenal first-time experience. Picky about vets, been spoiled with good ones in the past and was told there are not many to choose from in this area. So happy and relieved to discover District Brookland. Was struck by the combination of two things -- sincere kindness and clear expertise, exhibited by both Dr. Jordan and LVT Anastasia. Genuinely kind people, lovely with our cat, with a high-degree of well-communicated proficiency. Also, refreshingly transparent about pricing and necessity treatments versus "lifestyle" luxury treatments -- no up-selling and clear distinctions made. Grateful to have found our new vet!P WP W ★★★★★ Timely, caring service for our pup. They’ve been fantastic.

Amazingly smart, she takes the time to explain complex medical issues and has earned our trust.Clayton FClayton F ★★★★★ We’ve been going to District Vet for many years and every time I feel so much love, but we’ve just moved to Brookland and started going to the brookland location and it feels like your walking into a dear friend’s house- every single person there welcomes you with a smile, and our vet tech Kristen truly made the visit for me and my elderly, very nervous dog. I can not sing any more praises for District Vet, the whole team, Dr. Dan, and Kristen being two major rock stars!Lauren G.Lauren G. ★★★★★ Very clean space, super attentive and helpful techs and vets.Christopher E.Christopher E. ★★★★★ I brought my newly adopted kitty here and the staff were great.

COVID policies feel extremely safe.Reece F.Reece F. ★★★★★ My two dogs go here. One of them is named Abraham, he is a three year-old Redbone Coonhound. He had heartworm and was treated here very well. Thanks to District Veterinary Hospital, his heartworm is now gone and he still loves to run and play! My other dog is named Stork, he's a sixteen year-old maltese and is very strong.
