Home Veterinary Care in Maryland and the District of Columbia
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 doctor is always accompanied by a veterinary technician on appointments.
In 2015, the doctor and technicians underwent intensive online training to become certified in low-stress handling techniques through Dr. Sophia Yin’s Low Stress Handling course. Dr. Tanouye has also completed and maintains her Fear Free Certification. This allows them to provide a more relaxed and positive experience for both owners and pets.
Since opening in 2012, we have been consistently recognized as one of the best area veterinary practices 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.
