Dr. Luce knew he wanted to be a veterinarian when he was 12 years old. He grew up on a small farm with dogs, cats, horses, and sheep and has spent his life around animals. He majored in animal science at Virginia Tech, and received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990.
Dr. Luce thinks progressively and is dedicated to improving veterinary options available to pets. His special interests are breed-related diseases; ultrasound; emergency medicine; surgery, especially orthopedic; and endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures.
Dr. Luce established Dulles South Animal Emergency to offer emergency veterinary services. When not helping pets, Dr. Luce enjoys the anatomy of a Corvette engine. During his free time, he takes on the role of a mechanic to numerous Corvette enthusiasts in our area. When pets and Vettes are not occupying his time, Dr. Luce has plenty of activities to keep him busy between his wife, three children, and Doberman, Phebe. Dr. Luce has been recognized by his peers as one of the Top Veterinarians in Northern Virginia, voted the Best Veterinarian in the DC Suburbs, and has served on the Animal Advisory Committee for Loudoun County Animal Services for the past four years.
Dr. Luce worked for two other mixed animal practices before establishing Aldie Veterinary Hospital in 1998. Since that time, he saw a need for a free standing building that was dedicated just to pet’s healthcare; one location for every service. In 2015, almost 20 years later, he opened the doors to a state-of-the-art facility he named Dulles South Veterinary Center. Aldie Veterinary Hospital moved to Dulles South Veterinary Center and continues to provide the highest standards of patient and customer care.
