  • I couldn’t have asked for a better job. I love what I do and look forward to coming in to work each and every day. Seeing our pet patients, meeting their owners and conferring with their family veterinarian are the most gratifying aspects of owning and operating Animal Vision Center of Virginia. It’s hard to

  • Have you ever streamed the ’90s television series, Frasier? Do you remember Eddie the dog, the perky Jack Russell Terrier? The feisty little canine was known for snubbing the show’s namesake, Frasier Crane, while proving a devoted and loving companion to Frasier’s elderly father, Marty. It made for great comedy, but perhaps producers knew a

  • We didn’t think it would ever appear, but spring has arrived in Coastal Virginia! Finally, we can get out and about with our pets without slipping on ice or shivering in the cold. The change in the seasons has us thinking about getting a number of things back in order – our yards, homes and

Between wellness eye exams, surgeries, off-site visits and the many tasks associated with running an ocular care facility, there’s hardly a minute to oneself.

  • Are you enjoying the summer weather with your pets? This is a great time of year for our furry friends; especially for dogs who get to swim, eat frozen treats, dine alfresco with us at pooch-friendly outdoor cafes and take long afternoon naps (they don’t call these the dog days of summer for nothing!).

For a second year, our team will soon go on location to provide free ocular screenings for the City of Virginia Beach police dogs and patrol horses. We conduct these exams in May, which happens
