Care, compassion, community – Friendship

Established in 1936, Friendship provides quality, lifelong health care for dogs and cats in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Over the years, Friendship has developed into the most trusted animal health care facility in Washington D.C., providing primary, emergency and specialty care to more than 60,000 dogs and cats each year.

We provide compassionate, individualized health care for each patient 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We pride ourselves on patient care and client communication. Our team is distinguished not only by the skill with which we provide outstanding animal health care, but also by the compassion and empathy with which we deliver that care.

If an unexpected emergency arises, take comfort in knowing the same hospital you trust for wellness care is here for you any time of day or night. Our newly renovated and expanded facilities also enable us to offer state of the art specialty care including MRI, CT, and hydrotherapy – all under a single clinic roof.
