Colonial Animal Hospital is a full service medical and surgical veterinary hospital located in Midtown Springfield, VA, limited to dogs and cats. Our practice philosophy is preventative health medicine which we individualize based on the animal's age and lifestyle. An annual examination is recommended for all patients. With the annual exam other preventative health measures are discussed based on the patient's needs. Colonial Animal Hospital believes in lifestyle vaccinating. Vaccines are divided into core vaccines and optional vaccines. Optional vaccines are decided based on the pet's lifestyle. During the annual exam the patient's dental health is evaluated. We provide full service dentistries at Colonial Animal Hospital. Home care for the teeth is demonstrated at discharge. We can perform most necessary blood work in the hospital. Annual blood screening is recommended for all animals over 8 years of age. Other laboratory tests are sent out to a nationally recognized veterinary lab. Colonial provides most routine surgical procedures for its patients. We use the safest anesthetic protocols available and customize them the patient's needs. Pain management protocols are incorporated into all surgical procedures. Colonial offers on site radiology and ultrasound. X-rays are taken and developed by our trained veterinary assistants. We provide the AVID microchip identification system to our clients. Medicated and regular baths are available for both dogs and cats.
