BVC SUMMER FOOD DRIVE
Many families in our area are in the midst of planning their summer vacations, while others are preparing to struggle with shortages at the community food banks. Summer is the time, when food banks have the most need for donations. Children who are normally fed at least two meals at school per day, will be out for summer recess and will be in great need of nourishment.
The Capital Area Food Bank inventory is running dangerously low and BVC would like to help. We will be collecting non-perishable food items in the clinic from June 12, 2014 to June 19, 2014.
As a thank you for your support in this endeavor, BVC is offering 50% off a PHYSICAL EXAM for the client that donates the most food items and a FREE NAIL TRIM to the client that comes in second.

We made Washingtonian's best Vets again this February!
We take great pride in the fact that our clients have chosen us as one of the Washington D.C. area's top veterinary facilities. There are several clinics that share this honor with us, but we have consistently been chosen since 1995. This is a distinction that we cherish and we thank our clients for helping us achieve this recognition.
About the Clinic
Burke Veterinary Clinic opened its doors in 1979, just as the Burke community was beginning to develop. The practice provides comprehensive medical care for dogs and cats. We stress preventive medicine, but are fully prepared to diagnose and treat all manner of illnesses.
The practice provides complete veterinary care at no charge, and significantly reduced cost for puppies-in-training, for numerous organizations, including Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Guide Dog Foundation, Canine Companions for Independence, and Veterans Moving Forward. The doctors work closely with local wildlife rehabilitators, seeing orphaned and injured squirrels on a regular basis. The staff also provides pro bono orthopedic surgery for adoptable animals from several of the area's animal shelters. The clinic participates in community service projects including volunteering for the Route One Corridor Housing Project, and the Lorton Community Action Center.
At Burke Veterinary Clinic our mission is to treat each patient as if it were our own by providing the best medical care possible. We strive to treat our clients the way we would like to be treated: with courtesy, compassion, competence and respect.
Facility, Procedures, and Emergencies
Burke Veterinary Clinic is a fully equipped full service veterinary clinic. We have the training and experience to offer a wide variety of medical and surgical procedures. As general practitioners, we are available to manage the various medical issues your pet may experience. This includes diseases of the heart, lungs, eyes, nervous system, skin, digestive tract, etc. The doctors are able to provide quick answers for most medical conditions by conducting laboratory tests in-house including blood, urine and fecal analysis, glaucoma testing, blood pressure, X-ray radiography, electrocardiography, blood clotting parameters and much more. We are able to offer most soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries and the doctors are on call after hours to discuss any emergency that may arise with your pet. We also have a strong relationship with the local emergency and specialty referral centers in the area to be sure your pet gets the most up-to-date and effective treatment available.
