Location as of November 2015: http://districtvet.com/dr-dan-teich/
(Previously of www.dchomevet.com, and he was also at City Paws at least in 2013 and 2014)
Prior recommendation from Denise on P St NW: “I just had a home visit by a vet (I adopted a stray kitty) and I would recommend him.”

Recommendation in April 2014 by Nina: He is an excellent vet! He is very fair and does not over charge. He is also very knowledgeable and makes a great vet for your pet! I really enjoyed taking my dog Ginger to him specially he is relaxed and his personality puts you at ease.I can’t stand hyper doctors! They make me tense:-)

Pet Sitters

Royal Pedigree
Recommended in October 2015 by Britton Davis from Truxton Circle on Nextdoor Truxton Circle: I have used Royal Pedigree for a few years now. My old sitter from there followed me when I moved to Truxton Circle, but unsure if our neighborhood is typically in their service area. I imagine it is. They were very reliable. The sitter sends me text updates (w/ photos) and seems to be very good with the cats.

AnytimeK9
Recommended in October 2015 by Lydia La Motta from Bloomingdale on Nextdoor Truxton Circle: I would recommend AnytimeK9. When they do dog-sits, they have an app that requires the sitter to check-in everynight before a curfew, so they are definitely reliable!

 Sit A Pet 
http://www.sitapet.com
Recommended in October 2015 by Catherine Chandler from Bloomingdale on Nextdoor Truxton Circle: we’ve been working with Sit A Pet since we moved to bloomingdale. they’re very thorough in their hiring, most of their employees are actually vet techs! they visit you at home ahead of time to learn the ropes and meet the kitties and leave a detailed note for your return. real animal lovers and very reliable!

Recommended in November 2015 by Saranah Holmes from Truxton Circle on Nextdoor Truxton Circle: Sit-A-Pet is great. I used to be a sitter through them and the owner is OBSESSED with proper care of ALL pets http://www.sitapet.com

Celendra Williams
Self-referral in October 2015 by Celendra Williams from Bloomingdale Nextdoor Truxton Circle: I provide services for cats. Taken care of quite a few in this and surrounding areas. I have references and I’m more than likely cheaper than the others. I’ll provide references if you’re interested. Celwill85@Gmail.com is my personal email. Good luck

Simmy Singh with Rover and DogVacay
Self-referral in November 2015 from Simmy Singh from Bloomingdale Nextdoor Truxton Circle: Hi, I work with Rover and DogVacay. I would love to watch your cat! I have over 7 years of working experience with pets. I currently work for WWF – I am truly an animal lover! You can book me through their site if you prefer. Let me know if you are interested and I can send you my links. Simmy

Saving Grace
Recommended in November 2015 by Matt Brennan from Eckington Nextdoor Truxton Circle: I had good luck with Saving Grace. Their online scheduling system assured me that everyone was on the same page for visit days. I switched to Tails of the City because they have a sitter who is able to do Sub-Q fluids. They’ve been good, but I miss the online system.

Prior recommendation from Caryn: Mimi is like the dog whisperer with my big boy Sage.  She knows how to handle all sorts and sizes of dogs and makes sure they get exercised. Mimi will also board in her home.
