About Muddy Branch Veterinary Center

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited clinic since 1994, our team of veterinarians and support staff adheres to the highest standards of facility and pet care. Only 15% of all practices are AAHA certified (re-accreditation takes place every 3 years). However, our greatest source of pride is found in the praise of our clients and the satisfied purrs and wagging tails of our patients.

Get to know your veterinarian

We have found the key to quality veterinary care is a combination of medical competence, empathy for pet owners and compassion for our animal companions. Our veterinarians will listen to your concerns, diagnose any medical conditions, help you understand your options and work with you to make the right decisions for you and your pet.

At Muddy Branch Veterinary Center, our team is made up of a diverse group of veterinarians and support staff professionals who bring their love for animals to work with them everyday. Our veterinary team comes from all backgrounds, and they have joined Muddy Branch Veterinary Center because of their desire to make a difference in the lives of animals, as well as the people who love those animals.

Our Animal Hospital Offers Cutting Edge, Affordable Care

Muddy Branch Veterinary Center is an animal care facility equipped to handle all medical and surgical needs. From preventive health care services to advanced diagnostic and surgical services, our doctors and staff are trained to manage all of your pet's needs. We are continually updating our equipment and educating our team to the latest medical information. We know that everyone has a budget and we will work within the confines of your budget to get the best outcome for your pet.

Our Clients say...

The second you walk in it feels different than every vet I've been to. It smells good, they've got coffee, snacks and a friendly atmosphere with plenty of bright pictures and a super friendly staff. Dr. Katz is amazing! He really took the time to explain the treatment options and seemed to really care about how to proceed cautiously.

Ryan Smith

All of the staff were wonderful and so helpful with my very skittish new rescue pup. Dr. Katz and Katie sat on the floor with him feeding him treats while they did his exam. It set my dog at ease and made me realize this was clearly the right choice for vets in the area.

Katie Geoghegan

I don't think we've ever waited longer than 5 minutes, they always send reminders when our dogs are due for anything, and they clearly love what they do.

Joe Schauder

All the Drs at Muddy Branch Veterinary Clinic have always shown my pets the greatest kindest and have been gentle (even when one of my dogs is not) and the care they get has been superior. Options are always presented as such - no pressure to do optional things.

Karen Lefkowitz

I love this place. Such friendly and caring staff members from the moment you walk in the door. You can tell everyone there really genuinely loves animals and is concerned for the welfare of your pet. Dr. Challenge is my favorite because she takes a modern and holistic approach. She is a traditional vet but also offers services like acupuncture and laser which have been vital for some of my dogs injuries. I have a husky who LOVES TO RUN and as a result has had muscle strains which have responded wonderfully to acupuncture.

Amira Z

Pleasant & caring staff. Fit us in with urgent visit for our ailing cat.

Theresa Clark

Today was our first visit and I am pleased with the service and time taken.

Rachel Ramirez

Thank you so much for taking great care of Fluffy! She's friskier than ever thanks to the great care you provided.

Jane Smith

I love this practice! I have taken all my pets there for years and they always provide exemplary service. The entire staff is professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. They really care about my family. I highly recommend them!

Rose Quintilian

Dr. Katz and his staff are the most caring and kindest people. They really do love on your pet as if they were their own pets. The doctors take the time to listen and provide solutions to help your pet feel better and live longer. When we had to have our dog put to sleep, the staff was so caring and gave us space to grieve and were so gentle with us. I drive all the way from Falls Church because I love this place so much. They take such good care of my dogs and I recommend them to every single pet owner I know.
