Dr. Frederick B. Jones
Owner and Medical Director

Frederick B. Jones

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. While there, I gained experience in emergency medicine and was able to perform many different types of surgery, which is one of my professional interests. 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, three children and their cat, Dante. I have always enjoyed running, reading, photography, travel, and automobiles.

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.

Dr. Bharathi R. Jones

Bharathi R. Jones

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 loves 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 keeps busy taking care of their 3 children and 19 year old cat, Dante. I do find some free time for my other interests, which are running and reading.

Dr. Christopher M. Loss

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.

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.

Dr. Jacob London

Jacob London

I grew up in the Northern Virginia area surrounded by pets. My grandfather was a local Veterinarian which allowed me to become immersed in the veterinary field very early in life.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at Virginia Tech and then earned my Veterinary degree at St. George’s University, completing my clinical year at the University of Georgia. After graduating Veterinary school, I completed a one year rotating small animal internship in Springfield, Virginia at the Regional Veterinary Referral Center. My professional interests include surgery, cardiology, and preventive medicine.

When not working I try to be outside as much as possible. I enjoy being on the water and really enjoy wakeboarding and boating. I am also a huge college football fan and do my best to make it down to Blacksburg to watch the Hokies play whenever possible.

Practice Manager



I joined Arlington Animal Hospital in April 2016 as the Practice Manager.  My background started in 1990 in the Hospitality Industry and moved to the Pet Hospitality Industry (luxury Dog and Cat Boarding) in 2006 and then on to the Veterinary Field in 2010.  Originally from Germany, throughout my career I have lived and worked throughout the US and Caribbean.

I share my home in Springfield, Virginia with my husband and young son; presently no furry children but planned again soon after having a house full; 4 dogs and 3 cats, for 5 years.  I hold an A.S. ad B.S. in Hospitality Management from Johnson & Wales University.

I fell in to the pet industry in 2006 and I will never go back.  I enjoy working with our clients as well as the time I get to spend with the furry babies.  I will frequently pet sit and foster as time allows.


My goal for Arlington Animal Hospital is to be able to provide the best care possible for our extended pet family as well as their parents (our clients).

I joined the team at Arlington Animal Hospital in the summer of 2016.  I started off as a High School student exploring the Veterinary Field.  While working with the Veterinarians I realized I wanted to be part of the team!  I started working as a receptionist, greeting and petting every pet as they arrived.  After a couple of months, I was trained to work as a Veterinary Assistant.  With my passion for animals, I knew at a young age that I wanted to work with animals hands on.

When I'm not working, I enjoy trail hiking with my puppies or cuddle time with my bunny.
