House Paws Summer Hours!
House Paws is excited to announce “Summer Fridays” for all of our amazing, hard working employees so they can enjoy a little more relaxation time. After this past year of long hours, hectic schedules, and curbside service, they really do deserve it!

Starting June 25th all of our hospitals will be closing at 12:00 pm Fridays and will be re-opening Mondays at 8:00 am. If you need to get a message to us during these times (or after weekly closing hours), please download the PetDesk App for your House Paws location to send us a message, or send us an email and someone will respond when we return.

If you are experiencing an emergency during our closing hours please reach out to The Life Center at 703-777-5755.

We are ever so thankful to all of our clients and hope you all get to enjoy a Summer Friday or two, or three! 🙂

Our COVID-19 Policy:
We have from the beginning implemented a curbside service policy where clients (with rare exceptions) are not permitted into our facility due to social distancing limitations. Social distancing in not possible in our exam rooms.

Please call when you arrive for your appointment time and an assistant will come to your car to bring your pet into the building. As winter approaches, we will first obtain a history via phone and then bring your pet inside from your car. The doctor will examine your pet, we will call you to discuss any findings, perform the agreed upon services and return your pet to you. We ask for your continued patience as this process takes longer than having you and your pet in the exam room with the doctor and assistant while the exam is being done.

Emergency Veterinary Services

There when you need us most.


Are you experiencing an emergency?

ABC is vital for life: Airway, Breathing, Circulation. Make sure that your pets’ AIRWAY does not appear obstructed, that your pet is BREATHING, that the heart is beating and CIRCULATION of the blood is happening.

Apply compression to stop any flow of blood.

The gums of your pet should be pink – this indicates that ABC is functioning. Lift your pet’s upper lip and notice the colors, pink is good. You should do this often to establish what is normal for your pet. In this way, you will better be able to know what is NOT normal.

For our hospital clients:

During normal business hours CALL one of our hospitals. We can handle most urgent care conditions and in a true emergency, stabilize your pet for the trip to local pet ER – getting supportive treatment started sooner is better. Call first to ensure a doctor is available and will have the time to see your pet. We are NOT a 24-hour fully staffed emergency facility. We do NOT do emergency surgeries. All surgeries are scheduled!

For our house call clients:

If you believe your pet has a life-threatening condition, call or go directly to the nearest emergency hospital, here are some in our service area.
