Eric Langfitt, DVM, Practice Limited to Emergency & Critical Care

Staff Veterinarian

Emergency & Critical Care

I am originally from Jacksonville, Florida. Spent some time in Colorado and New York before settling to the DC area. Enjoy running and swimming and other outdoor activities, but also enjoy the museums and other indoor amenities that DC has to offer.

Clinical Areas of Interest

I am interested in emergency focused veterinary medicine and dealing with critically ill patients. Such areas include transfusion medicine, metabolic diseases and sepsis.

Why Do You Work at Friendship?

Chose Friendship Hospital for Animals due to its varied caseload and high quality medicine. It is a very busy emergency hospital in the DC area and also has multiple trained specialists leading to a large variety of cases and case management strategies.
