Frederick B. Jones

Dr. Frederick B. Jones
Owner and Medical Director

I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree from the College of William and Mary in 1994 and my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. I then went on to complete a one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine.

From August 2001 until August 2009, I worked as a day veterinarian at a 24-hour animal hospital in the northern Virginia area.  In October 2009, I became the new owner of Arlington Animal Hospital. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the clients and pets of the practice.

I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, and am USDA-accredited.

I knew at a young age that I wanted to be a veterinarian, having grown up with Labrador Retrievers. When not at Arlington Animal Hospital, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. I have always enjoyed running, reading, photography, travel, and automobiles.

Kay Young

Dr. Kay Young
Associate Veterinarian

I received my Bachelor of Science degree and my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Tennessee.  I joined the Arlington Animal Hospital family in 1988 and have loved being a part of that community.

My interests include small animal medicine and surgery as well as veterinary acupuncture.  Outside of the hospital, I volunteer as a primate education interpreter at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, endeavoring to educate visitors and raise public awareness about the crises facing these critically endangered species today.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, skiing, cooking and running.  I live with my husband and two extremely cute dogs in Alexandria.

Bharathi R. Jones

Dr. Bharathi R. Jones
Associate Veterinarian

I grew up in Western Maryland and fell in love with the woods and the animals who lived there. I decided I wanted to become a veterinarian in the 3rd grade so I could combine my love for animals with helping people. I did my undergraduate studies in Chemistry at Georgetown University, and then obtained my DVM degree from Cornell University in beautiful Ithaca, NY.

I enjoy building long term relationships with clients and their pets, and helping them strengthen their bond with each other. My special interests include internal medicine, senior care, and preventive care. I love that veterinary medicine is continually challenging and never boring.

During veterinary school I took a fateful trip to a student conference, where I met soon to be Dr. Frederick Jones whom I eventually married. I worked at Friendship Hospital for Animals in DC for about 10 years before joining Fred at Arlington Animal Hospital. I work part time and when I’m home I keep busy taking care of our 3 children and 19 year old cat, Dante. I do find some free time for my other interests, which are running and reading.

Christopher M. Loss

Dr. Christopher M. Loss
Associate Veterinarian

A native Washingtonian, I received my DVM from Oklahoma State University in 2000 after completing my undergraduate education at Virginia Tech. In 2001, I began working at Arlington Animal Hospital as an Associate Veterinarian, until 2008 when I embarked on a new venture at the Food and Drug Administration as a regulatory veterinarian evaluating new animal drugs for companion animals. I enjoy the camaraderie of the Arlington Animal Hospital patients and clients, and I continue to work on a part time basis.

My wife and I reside in Alexandria, VA with our two sons, two dogs, and cat. In my free time I enjoy running, playing with my boys, being a Cub Scout leader, and woodworking.

Julie  Duerler

Dr. Julie Duerler
Associate Veterinarian

I joined the Arlington Animal Hospital team in 2013, after more than 10 years at Woodbridge Animal Hospital. I grew up in Grove City, Ohio and received my undergraduate degree from North Carolina Wesleyan College, where I double-majored in biology and chemistry, and enjoyed playing four years of soccer.

I earned my DVM degree from Ohio State University. My interests include general medicine and client education. I share my home with my husband and daughter, and we have a Siamese-mix cat named Sabi. Outside of the office, I enjoy any outdoor activity, especially walking and hiking.
