Dr. Davis Hall is the founder and patriarch of Columbia Pike Animal Hospital and Emergency Center, founded in 1974. Our actual roots were planted in 1974 when, after serving in the military, Dr. Hall acquired Town & Country Animal Hospital in Fairfax. The practice treated both large and small animals, as Northern Virginia was still richly rural. Through the years, Dr. Hall organized and nurtured a growing staff of veterinary professionals, all embracing his philosophy of expert treatment delivered with compassion. He also serves as a touchstone for our veterinarians, as his wealth of knowledge and experience will always help to ensure the best outcomes for all pet patients. Most of his clients consider him part of the family, having cared for generations of pets, some traveling many miles for wellness exams and treatment. Both hospitals have grown to include full-service kennels and grooming facilities with more than 150 staff members. Dr. Hall graduated from Texas A&M University in 1969.
