Meet the Vet! Dr. Arzhang Ashkan (we call him Dr. AJ) graduated from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech in 2014. He has lived in Northern Virginia since 2003. He started his career with animals at the age of 16 in a grooming salon. He later became a pet groomer. He worked as a veterinary assistant and a groomer while attending vet school. He lives in Sterling with his wife, two cats and a chinchilla. Dr. AJ has an interest in dermatology and dentistry. 



Malina is currently owned by 2 dogs, a German Shepherd and a Belgian Malinois 2 cats, and a coupleof aquariums. She likes working with her dogs in her free time. She grew up with countless animals as well as a brother and sister. Her pets have included a hedgehog named Puppy, multiple chinchillas, rabbits, parakeets, snakes, hamsters, a gerbil, and a turtle she snuck into the house and had fully set up....without her mother's knowledge. The past few years she has been working doggie daycare because working with critters is in her blood. Malina has known Dr. Ashkan since he was a junior in high school, and she was even littler than she is now. She is looking forward to the opportunity to help care for all your furry friends.
