Welcome to the Animal Clinic of Clifton.
In July of 2011, I reopened the Animal Clinic of Clifton, with the goal of providing compassionate and individual care to the dogs and cats of Clifton, Fairfax Station, Fairfax and surrounding areas. If you and your pet haven’t had the opportunity to visit the Animal Clinic of Clifton, you will be happy to see it’s new appearance, updated medical equipment and expanded hours. I grew up in Northern Virginia, graduated from Princeton University in 1991, and attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1996. After graduating from vet school, I moved to Boston and completed a surgery and medicine internship at South Shore Animal Hospital, a large specialty clinic. I returned to the area in 1997 and accepted a veterinary position at Burke Animal Clinic. Most recently, I also practiced at Companion Animal Clinic in Fairfax Station. I am married, and my husband Robert and I live in Fairfax Station with our crazy cat Dumbles. I hope you will find your way to the Animal Clinic of Clifton and its small town feeling and personalized care. I look forward to meeting you and your pets in the near future and to being part of the Clifton community. I welcome both returning clients and their pets, as well as new patients.
Sincerely, Dr. Ylva Bostrom (Ylva Bostrom Ihrig)
