About Us


Home Veterinary Care in Maryland and the District of Columbia

Gunnar grows up with RCHV

 

Rock Creek Home Vet was opened by Dr. Daphne Tanouye in the spring of 2012 with a goal of spending more time with clients and patients in a more relaxed and personal environment than is typical in a clinic setting. In order to practice at a high standard of care, our doctors are always accompanied by a veterinary technician on appointments.

In 2015, the doctors and technicians underwent intensive online training to become certified in low-stress handling techniques through Dr. Sophia Yin’s Low Stress Handling course. This allows them to provide a more relaxed and positive experience for owners and pets alike.

Since opening in 2012, we have been nominated three times for Washingtonian Magazine’s Top Pet Care. We are proud to provide excellent medical care to our patients through all life-stages, and when a patient needs more intensive care than can be provided in the home, we have good relationships with area referral hospitals.
