General Info
Best Friends' Veterinary Hospital, Gaithersburg, MD was started in memory of the best friend Dr. Hollifield ever had. She believes that regardless of species, there is a connection we all have with some animals that makes them part of our chosen family. They give us never ending love and we want to do the best we can for them in return. That belief is how she runs her hospital. She treats your pet like her very own. Every procedure, preventive, or service needed is available for every species. No unnecessary procedures or medications will be prescribed, only just what will directly benefit their health so they can live a long full life with you. There is a long list of credentials and services for you to read, but Dr. Hollifield would like to meet you in person, so call and stop by sometime. Your direct impression is the best way to decide if we are worthy of your trust to take care of your Best Friend's health and well being.

A Review by Barbara Haslam & "Darwin"

Best Friends Veterinary Hospital has cared for my dogs since 1996. This care over the long lives (14 years, 12 years and currently, 5 years) of three dogs has been excellent! One of the reasons for the long lives is the vet care they receive(d) from Dr. Victoria Hollifield and her staff at BFVH. Dr. Hollifield is a wonderfully skilled, compassionate, caring and conscientious vet - caring for my animals as if they were her own. She as well as her staff takes the time to get to know my pets thoroughly and therefore well enough that their judgement on any services needed would be as my own. I have had routine services (e.g. vaccinations, annual exams, teeth cleaning), surgery services and end-of-life care provided with economic mindfulness, friendliness, courteousness and gracious warmth. I strongly recommend BFVH, Dr. Hollifield and her staff to anyone and everyone with any type of pet!

Joni Rainbolt and "Sparkle"

My Quaker Parrot "Sparkle" and I have had the opportunity to benefit from the experience and expertise of Dr. Victoria Hollifield and her staff at Best Friends' Veterinary Hospital, Gaithersburg, MD, since 2003. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank her and her loving staff for their loving support and outstanding assistance/efforts with "Sparkle". I feel that "Sparkle" and I have benefited from their knowledge as well as their quality of work performed.

Additionally, the staff is always professional and courteous and has always gone out of their way to assist me with any question or need. The staff's willingness to provide "Whatever is necessary" is characteristic of the outstanding professionalism they all exhibit in their daily duties and I appreciate this opportunity to bring this to your attention and that I would never trust anyone else with my precious baby. May the doctor never retire!!
