About Us

About UsOur History

Leesburg Veterinary Hospital has been a prominent fixture in the Loudoun County community for almost thirty years. From 1985-2011, our practice was privileged to grow in downtown Leesburg, where we established a loyal client and patient following. To best serve our patients, practice owner Dr. Michael Strickland envisioned and designed a new facility that would provide the highest standards of veterinary care while encompassing the true Loudoun County lifestyle. Since June 2011, we have been practicing out of a free-standing, state-of-the-art facility on Route 15, just south of town. A rustic and casual retreat, coupled with the best veterinary technology available, every inch of our new hospital was created with our clients and patients in mind.
