Small Door Veterinary Opens 3rd DC Practice 

Small Door Veterinary expanded its reach in Washington, D.C. with the inauguration of its new facility in Spring Valley neighborhood, marking the third practice to open in the city this year.  

Their unique model redefines pet healthcare, offering membership at $169 per pet annually, incorporating perks like free exams, immediate appointments, round-the-clock telemedicine, extended consultation time, and facilities. Dr. Kristen Fischer and Dr. Jake London lead the Spring Valley practice. 

With ten locations spanning three markets, including five in New York City and two in Boston, “The DC market has proven to be a population of pet owners who value a more modern, personalized and thoughtful model of care. As Small Door continues to expand in the DC market, Spring Valley was an ideal neighborhood to serve our target customer,” said Josh Guttman, Co-Founder and CEO of Small Door.
