Dr. Lauren Ranivand and Dr. Melissa Gosline both started out as veterinary technicians and met while working at a local hospital. It was obvious early on that they shared a similar approach to working with and treating pets. They both quickly bond to their patients and want to ensure that they receive the best care and experience possible. We want bringing your pet to Fairfax Veterinary Hospital to be a positive experience for you and your pet. That’s why we have taken extra effort to minimize stress and anxiety by becoming a certified Fear-free practice and a Cat-friendly practice. Please see our Fear-free and Cat-friendly sections to learn more about what we have done to make this possible.

One of our core values is a commitment to integrative medicine. We recognize the importance of looking at the whole picture of health in your pet. This means considering physical, biological, environmental, nutritional and lifestyle factors. In addition, we are always seeking more knowledge and training for our doctors and staff so that we can provide the most comprehensive care.

Our doctors and staff are known for their emphasis on the special bond between humans and their pets. We pledge to work with you to help keep your pet happy and healthy through every stage of your journey together. Just as they are a member of your family, we want you to be a member of ours.
