Description

The Vienna Animal Hospital, conveniently located in the Village Green Shopping Center at the junction of Maple Ave and Nutley, has been providing the highest quality companion animal health care for over 50 years. From the very beginning we have strived to offer the very best and up-to-date care possible to our patients, while trying never to forget the art of medicine as well as the science. To this end we have been a certified member of the prestigious American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) since 1959. This is a voluntary organization which sets high standards for membership, and which conducts stringent triennial inspections to insure that its standards are maintained and continually upgraded. Fewer than 17% of Veterinary Hospitals nationwide are certified as AAHA hospitals.

In addition to our AAHA membership, the Vienna Animal Hospital has been honored by being named a Merit Award Hospital by Veterinary Economics. Only eleven Animal Hospitals nationwide earn this recognition each year.

The Vienna Animal Hospital is a full service facility offering dentistry, surgery, nutritional and behavioral counseling, microchipping, x rays and ultrasound. During the evenings, and on weekend hour and holidays when we are not open, emergencies involving our patients are care for by the Hope Center for Advance Veterinary Medicine on 140 Park Street SE, in Vienna.

.The professional staff of this hospital actively participates in veterinary continuing education so that your pet can benefit from the most recent advances in veterinary knowledge and care. All of our full time professional staff attend both monthly local, and yearly national continuing education meetings.

Dr. Eric Chafetz

Dr. Chafetz, born and raised in New York City, graduated from Cornell University in 1976, and received his D.V.M. from Cornell in 1980. After practicing near Albany, New York, he joined the Henry Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital of the ASPCA in New York City in 1981. At that time the Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital was the fourth largest hospital in the country. In 1985 he became head of medicine and staff surgeon at the hospital, and remained there until 1989 when he joined the Vienna Animal Hospital. In 1987 he sat for, and passed his board exams, and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, a level of expertise attained by less than 800 of the 75,000 veterinarians practicing in the United States and Canada. Unlike other specialty boards, the ABVP required recertification every 10 years, and Dr. Chafetz has resat and passed in 1997 and 2007. He has also been an editor for a prestigious national veterinary journal, The Compendium of Continuing Education for the Practicing Veterinarian. Dr. Chafetz, his wife Diana, a pre-school teacher, and their 2 children, Aaron and Emma have lived in Vienna since 1989. Currently their house is ruled by their 9 years old mixed breed dog Tikka. Dr. Chafetz has been active in youth sports in Vienna, serving on boards in Little League, Babe Ruth, and the Vienna Baseball foundation, as well as coaching baseball, basketball and lacrosse. His hobbies include, obviously, baseball, as well as reading and politics.
