April is Heartworm Awareness Month
Mosquitoes can spread heartworm, a harmful disease that affects both dogs and cats. As its name implies, heartworm lives in the blood of a pet's heart and blood vessels. We recommend annual screenings for both dogs and cats, even if they are already on heartworm preventatives.
April 2018 is Heartworm Awareness month here at Ashburn Village Animal Hospital, and we are offering 50% off canine in-house heartworm testing when you purchase 12 months of Heartgard (also comes with $12 rebate) and 10% off Proheart. We are also offering 50% off in-house feline heartworm tests with the purchase of 12 months of Revolution.
Prevention is the best approach in protecting your pet against deadly heartworms. Call us at (571) 252-8544 today!
Save On Your Pet's Lyme Vaccine this March
Spring is officially here, and now is the time to have our pets protected against the rise of disease-carrying ticks.

It is also important to make sure that your pet is on the best flea and tick prevention for his or her needs. We offer a topical product, Vectra, a Seresto collar, and a chewable option (Nexgard). Ask us for more information and about some rebates that come with each.

AVAH Partners with the Animal Behavior College
Ashburn Village Animal Hospital recently worked together with the Animal Behavior College in training a student for their Veterinary Assistant internship. The student came well prepared in knowing what skills they had to practice and they also had a good basic knowledge of how a veterinary clinic works. It was a great opportunity not only for the student to learn but also for our team to get to help shape the future of an eager veterinary assistant!
Are you or someone you know looking to become a certified veterinary assistant? We highly recommend this program to anyone! This program is comprised of a 90-hour internship during which they learn various skills in a real world setting. We look forward to hosting other students in the future!
Free Cuddle Visits
Is Your Pet Afraid of the Vet? Bring Them in for a Cuddle!
We know that having a pet that is afraid of the veterinarian is stressful for both the owner and the pet! Our veterinarians and staff want to try something new and need your help. We are now offering free cuddle visits to help promote a better relationship between doctor and patient.
These visits are 5-minute slots that allow fearful patients to come just to be cuddled. By doing this, we hope your pets will begin to associate our hospital with a "good place" rather than a place where they get nail trims and shots! This service is especially good for puppies in between their vaccine series and for those pets that are already fearful and aggressive.
