At Animal Vision Center of Virginia, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality ophthalmic care for both our pet patients—and those of our referring veterinary partners, like you. To help make referrals and consultations easier on your end, we are launching a mobile-friendly Referral & Consultation Request Form especially for our referring veterinarians. Please see the instructions below on how to add a shortcut to our mobile form (much like other apps) on your mobile device for quick access.

With this mobile rDVM form, you may request a quick consultation, mobile consultation or submit a patient referral with the convenience of being able to upload photos taken directly from your phone to include with your request. We will respond to requests within 24 hours. Please call our office at 757-749-4838 if your request is regarding an urgent case.
