The doctors at Dupont Veterinary Clinic are not part of a large corporate entity. In fact, they live and work in and around the Dupont Circle community—just like you do.
Dr. Jan Rosen, our Medical Director, attended Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. She has over 25 years of experience, practicing in a small animal hospital for 16 years, then working for the Washington Animal Rescue League, and serving as Medical Director. In her spare time, she loves reading and gardening and has a beloved and perfect shelter dog, Ruby, and two beloved shelter cats, Hattie and Footie. Dupont Veterinary Clinic is extremely proud and lucky to have her knowledge, surgical skill, and leadership qualities guiding our team of doctors.
Dr. Jenna Randall-Smith earned her undergraduate degree in animal bioscience at Penn State University and graduated from Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She has worked in a variety of veterinary settings, including private practice, emergency service, and shelter medicine, which helped her hone a diverse skill set that serves our patients well. Dr. Randall-Smith is USDA Accredited and Fear Free Certified. She has two children, a rescue dog named Skellar and a rescue “pirate” cat named Alastor.

We are unsure of Chloe’s age, but she is a swinging senior gal. Chole came to us in September 2022 and became part of the Dupont family. Chloe is our stress reliever and morale booster for the team. In her spare time, Chloe likes watching YouTube videos of Birds and Squirrels or hanging out with Dr. Rosen’s dog Ruby. She takes her job as a seat warmer seriously, and always keeps our doctor’s chairs warm until they return.
