We hope you enjoy the information we have posted about our state of the art animal hospital and boarding and grooming services and we will continue to post periodic updates.

Dentistry

Regular ultrasonic dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining your pet's health. In our state-of-the-art dentistry suite we offer digital dental radiography to take X-ray pictures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissues. These pictures are available within moments on our advanced computer system to enable our staff to screen for and identify problems with the teeth, mouth and jaw including cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that can not be seen during a routine visual examination. Dental X-rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments.

Pre-anesthetic blood testing, state-of-the-art monitoring devices and modern anesthetic and pain control regimens make necessary surgeries on your beloved pets as safe and worry free as possible. Our advanced surgery suite has positive airflow to help maintain the most sterile environment for surgical procedures. Our recovery area is equipped with the latest in specialty monitoring devices and is located adjacent to the hospital treatment area to ensure your pet's post-operative care and comfort.

Hospitalization and Intensive Care

Your pet's care and comfort are most important to us. Our large hospital ward features comfortable and well equipped space for your pet to recover and receive ongoing treatment. For our sickest patients, we have intensive care and a separate isolation ward equipped with a negative airflow system to ensure pets who might have a contagious condition receive specialized care with minimal risk to other pets.

X-Rays: Our in-house digital radiology lab allows Dr. Walcoff to take the most advanced X-rays on site in our hospital and view them immediately so he can make a rapid diagnosis of your pet's illness or injury.

Digital Radiology

Digital radiology may represent the greatest technological advancement in medical imaging over the last decade. Our hospital has its own digital radiography (in addition to our digital dental radiography capability). Radiographs and specialized contrast techniques are valuable diagnostic tools and can play an important role in determining the best course of treatment and care for your pet.

Exotic Pets: Dr. Walcoff has extensive medical and surgical experience in treating all types of exotic pets. Birds, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, amphibians, guinea pigs, and all other pocket pets receive quality, knowledgeable care.

Dr. Walcoff grew up in Montgomery County and began working toward opening a new practice in Clarksburg in 2003. He and his family are extremely excited to offer the greater Clarksburg area the same high quality veterinary medicine and pet care he has been providing his clients for over 16 years.

Dr. Walcoff is a graduate of Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda and Washington University in St. Louis. He earned his doctor of veterinary medicine with honors from the prestigious Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine in New York.

Dr. Walcoff began his career in Miami, Florida at a 24-hour multi-hospital practice where he obtained extensive emergency training as well as quality medical and surgical skills. Dr. Walcoff relocated back to his roots in Maryland to a large multi-doctor hospital in Annapolis where he practiced for 4 years. In September of 2000, he and his wife, Sheila, built and opened Old Farm Veterinary Hospital, a full service veterinary hospital in Frederick, Maryland. He practiced full time at Old Farm until February 2008 when they sold the hospital.

Dr. and Mrs. Walcoff have two young sons, Skyler and Jaden. They share their home with a yellow Labrador "puppy" named Scooby Doo, and a chocolate Labrador named Biscayne.

Mrs. Walcoff is a health and science policy lawyer and the Founding Principal of Goldbug Strategies LLC . She is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ) in Washington DC and encourages friends of Bennett Creek Animal Hospital to support our national zoo and join FONZ.
