★★★★★ The only place I take my dog. I trust them to take good care of him from routine appointments to one-off events, District Vet staff are the best!Irene C.Irene C. ★★★★★ I’m truly grateful for the wonderful culture and care staff show at District Vet Brookland. Our cat was seen by Dr Makhijani and Technician Andrew. Both of them were very gentle with our 5 year old cat.I’ve had not-so nice experiences with other vets in DC, but this team has made my heart feel at ease. And I know my cat is also more willing to participate in the examination.Pamela C.Pamela C. ★★★★★ This vet always takes great care of my cat, and when he is extra sick (upper respiratory infection) they always find a way to get him in, even if they are very busy. We have been going to them for a year and a half and no complaints.Olga F.Olga F. ★★★★★ I took my cat Shiro for her digestive issue. The vet tech, Dr. Raftery was incredible. She gave me plenty of time to address all of my concerns and took time to explain everything to me, including suggestions on my cat's diet and treatment plans. Dr. Raftery has strong professional skills, is knowledgeable, and offers detailed advice on future preventive care. Great experience! I look forward to my next visit. Thank you, Dr. Raftery!FanFan ★★★★★ Great service, highly recommend!Amy F.Amy F. ★★★★★ Anastasia, the vet tech who was there to help us during our cat Moo's recent dental surgery, deserves a glowing review. From the moment we arrived at the clinic, her warmth and professionalism put us at ease. She patiently and thoroughly answered all of our questions, alleviating any concerns we had about the procedure.Anastasia kept us updated on Moo's progress and made sure to follow up with us afterward, providing essential information on post-surgery care. Her communication and genuine concern for our pet's well-being were truly exceptional. Her dedication to her work and her compassionate approach made a challenging situation much more manageable for us.We can't thank her enough for the care she provided to Moo and the peace of mind she gave us. Her professionalism, expertise, and genuine kindness make her an invaluable asset to the clinic. We are grateful for her outstanding service and support during this time. Thank you, Anastasia!Montana M.Montana M. ★★★★★ Dr. Nichols is very attentive and spending enough time to understand patients needs/concerns. She is great!Mia T.Mia T. ★★★★★ Great care of my dog for over 7 years.Anthony A.Anthony A. ★★★★★ Love the professionalism and services that they provide for my domestic family members.veronica A.veronica A. ★★★★★ From the 1st visit (after I adopted my cat) to the last visit (when my cat passed away), District Vet has been very helpful, professional and responsive throughout the 7 years I dealt with them. 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. Highly recommend.Eric G.Eric G. ★★★★★ Really friendly with my dogsLove this pace for my doggiesCandida D.Candida D. ★★★★★ Always great care and friendly staff!!Katie R.Katie R. ★★★★★ they were so great with my cats uzi and jade, they gave us our own room and everything was quick and easy. they also send a follow up email checking in!xx ★★★★★ My two cats just had their annual well check here and we had an absolutely wonderful experience with Anastasia and Dr. Raftery.

They are like family and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for Luna’s care.Amy D.Amy D. ★★★★★ We’ve had dogs since 1996, and I rate Dr. Lin and District Vet at the top of the pack. 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. He has had his teeth pulled out because they were rotten as he was a stray for a very long time, he has had two intestinal blockages, multiple tumours, has been run over by a car, and is a cancer survivor! He has been in remission from cancer for about a year and a half. District Veterinary Hospital has given him checkups and helped him a lot. He is very happy now and loves to cuddle.Jacobine W.Jacobine W. ★★★★★ We’ve been coming to district vet since we moved about a year ago, and they have been fantastic.

Highly recommend this vet practice.Daniel F.Daniel F. ★★★★☆ The doctors are great. Technicians are hit or miss, possibly overwhelmed. Parking at the Brookland site can be very challenging.Diana O.Diana O. ★★★★☆ I come here a lot and the staff and the doctors are really nice and take good care of my cat. Where they can improve is their organizational skills. I sometimes come in and no one notifies the vet techs that I’ve arrived after I check in. Sometimes no one responds to my emails. Sometimes multiple people respond to my same email. Other than that I am very happy.Olga FOlga F ★★★★☆ My Wife and I took our Foster Animal here, the Staff at the Front Desk were very personable and thorough.
