About Kenwood Animal Hospital
About Kenwood Animal Hospital
Kenwood Animal Hospital is a full-service dog and cat veterinary hospital located in Bethesda, MD. Dr. Kathleen Dougherty and the entire staff of Kenwood Animal Hospital are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality of care, and our services are geared to suit our clientele's busy lives. We're a practice driven by service - not policy. Each day, we endeavor to merge high-tech and highly personable service in order to offer you and your pet the best experience possible.
The hospital has a long history in our community. Dr. Raymond Currey opened the Washington Veterinary Clinic in the 1930s on Wisconsin Avenue in Friendship Heights. He retired in 1986 and sold the property to the developers of the Chevy Chase Pavilion. His son, Dr. Gordon Currey, who had been working with his father, opened the Currey Animal Clinic at the present location. Upon his retirement in 2001, Dr. Gordon Currey sold the practice to Dr. Kathleen Dougherty, who renamed the practice Kenwood Animal Hospital. Dr. Dougherty has since renovated and expanded the practice to include a number of complementary services.
The committed, skilled staff at Kenwood Ani...mal Hospital offers full medical and surgical services, an on-site laboratory and pharmacy, pet transportation, boarding, training, doggy daycare and grooming services. We work with several local animal rescue organizations to assist in providing continuity of care and guidance for newly adopted pets. We also work to help the individuals who serve our community, offering discounted services to our area's police, fire and rescue and military servicemen and women.
At Kenwood Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on the scope and quality of the services we provide for our clients and the pets entrusted into our care.
