Dulles South Animal Emergency and Referral Hospital is dedicated to providing emergency and critical care services for your companion pets. We are located within the new Dulles South Veterinary Center.

We will partner with both you and your primary care veterinarian to provide overnight observation, after-hours emergency services, rehabilitation & laser therapy, emergency surgery, as well as critical and intensive care to meet your pet’s needs.
From admission to discharge, we keep your veterinarian informed so your follow-up appointments with them are seamless.

Dr. Drew Luce knew he wanted to be a veterinarian since he was twelve years old. He has spent his life around animals by growing up on a small farm with dogs, cats, horses and sheep. Dr. Luce attended Virginia Tech where he majored in Animal Science. Subsequently, he received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. Dr. Luce has been recognized, by his peers, as one of the Top Veterinarians in Northern Virginia and voted publicly voted as the Best Veterinarian in DC Suburbs. In addition, he serves on the Animal Advisory Committee for Loudoun County Animal Services.
Dr. Luce worked for two other mixed animal practices before establishing Aldie Veterinary Hospital in 1998. Since that time, Dr. Luce saw a need for a free standing building that was dedicated just to pet?s healthcare; one location for every service. It took almost 20 years, but in 2015, he opened the doors to a state-of-the-art facility, he named, Dulles South Veterinary Center. Aldie Veterinary Hospital immediately relocated to Dulles South Veterinary Center to continue providing excellent veterinary care. In addition, Dr. Luce established Dulles South Animal Emergency to offer emergency veterinary medicine. Presently, Dulles South Animal Emergency is the only pet emergency hospital on the southeast side of Loudoun County.
In addition to veterinary anatomy, Dr. Luce enjoys the anatomy of a Corvette engine. During his free time, he takes on the role as mechanic to numerous Corvette enthusiasts in our area. When pets and vettes are not occupying his time, Dr. Luce? has plenty activities to keep him busy between his wife, three children, and Doberman, Phebe.
