Who We Are

Who We Are

Friendship Hospital for Animals is an exceptional provider of pet health care.  Our team provides a wide scope of services using a collaborative approach to best medicine.  We have over sixty veterinarians in areas of primary care, emergency, and  advanced specialty care. We also partner with many local and regional referring veterinarians to offer state of the art health care.

As an independent hospital not associated with a national chain, Friendship has been family owned for over eighty years.  We are able to respond quickly to changing healthcare needs and provide the highest level of care.

Friendship is open 24 hours every day and has been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association for over sixty years.  We serve the greater Washington community and receive specialty referrals from veterinarians up and down the east coast.

Friendship provides state of the art, comprehensive services for our clients and patients. But, more than that, we provide a caring team who understands the unique human-animal bond. View Our Services
