As we continue to experience challenges and disruptions in our daily lives due to COVID-19, we wanted to keep you informed of possible delays in services and employee status currently at Takoma Park Animal Clinic.
First, we have not received any reports from our staff regarding any exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We have required all staff, visitors, and other stakeholders to wear a mask at all times while on the premises (inside or outside). We also require that staff and visitors sanitize their hands at the entrance and keep 6 ft distance from each other. Our goal is to provide a safe & healthy environment for our staff, clients, and all stakeholders.
Secondly, we are also making every effort to ensure we can continue to serve you and your companion during the pandemic. At this point, we have decided to adjust our operating hours given the final decision of the District of Columbia, Montgomery County, and Prince George’s Public School Board of Education’s decisions about student’s virtual learning from home. This decision has impacted many parents/guardians in our area and our staff isn’t exempt. See temporary hours below. In addition, only clients requiring euthanasia services will be allowed into the clinic at this time. Please note that we are providing curbside service and telemedicine as an alternative.
Lastly, we will continue to keep you informed of any further updates as we all maneuver through this new “norm” journey. We thank you in advance for your continued understanding and support as we strive to meet the needs of all stakeholders involved. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but please know that the decision was not easy; yet, for the best. We hope that you and your family are keeping safe. Thank you for allowing Takoma Park Animal Clinic to care for your veterinary needs.

Advanced Veterinary Care in Takoma Park
Wellness & Preventive Care
We recommend that puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with chronic health conditions have bi-annual examinations and that healthy adult pets visit the veterinarian for at least one wellness examination per year.
In addition to keeping your pet’s vaccinations and parasite prevention routine up-to-date, regular wellness examinations allow our veterinarians to establish a baseline of your pet’s health by examining them when they’re doing well. As a result, we’re better able to detect changes in their weight, appearance, condition, or laboratory results that could indicate early signs of a health problem.
Early detection is often the key to successful treatment with many chronic and age-related illnesses. Our pets can’t tell us when they feel ill or experience pain. In fact, cats and dogs instinctively try to mask their symptoms. Without regular health screening, diseases often aren’t diagnosed until they’ve progressed significantly.
Depending on your pet’s age, history, and condition, we might recommend regular health screening with our suite of in-house veterinary diagnostics. This might include blood work, urinalysis, fecal testing, and/or diagnostic imaging.
Our veterinarians are highly experienced and skilled in examining, diagnosing, and treating sick pets. Whether your pet has an acute illness or suffers from a chronic, systemic disease, our veterinarians will work with local veterinary specialists to determine the best course of treatment.
If your pet suffers from chronic pain, our veterinarians can provide relief with a variety of safe and effective pain management strategies.
