Animal Vision Center of Virginia is a progressive, rapidly-growing multi-specialty practice in the heart of Coastal Virginia. Our core values center on staff happiness and fulfillment, and high-level individualized patient/client care. We strive for all of our employees to feel both a strong sense of purpose and passion in what they do, creating an unparalleled work culture.

In addition to a generous compensation and benefits package, you will have the added benefit of the opportunity to live in one of the most beautiful cities on the East Coast – Virginia Beach, named one of the best places to live by USA Today Weekend. You’ll find cool neighborhoods, fantastic restaurants, a lively arts scene, state parks and the famous oceanfront boardwalk and beach! It’s just a short drive from Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and the Outer Banks.

You’ll also find the area to be very animal-loving, with the presence of excellent animal advocacy and wildlife rehabilitation groups, as well as home to the Virginia Zoological Park, Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, Virginia Living Museum and more.  We provide ophthalmology care for many of these organizations. Our practice is also very active in the community, providing free or reduced-cost services to local service and therapy dogs, K-9 police dogs, mounted patrol horses, therapeutic riding horses, wildlife rehabilitation organizations, SPCAs and rescue groups in our area.

Come find the positive team experience and quality of life you deserve!
