  • What a Blessing

    -Debbie Canady from Chesapeake, VA
    Pet Name: Layla Bandit Temple

    I have 3 pets that are treated at VCA Airline Boulevard Animal Hospital in Portsmouth, VA. I just love everyone that works there. When my family was considering adopting a 2 1/2 year old doggie from the local shelter, we learned that she had heartworms. We knew that if we did not adopt her, they would euthanize her. I could not let that happen. We adopted her, and VCA and the local shelter took care of her heartworm treatments. Our sweet doggie's name is "Layla" and she is now 4 1/2 years old, and is GREAT! Thank you so much VCA for your love and kindness! We also adopted a puppy. Well, he's a very wild child, and has the perfect name to fit his personality "Bandit". Bandit is great with our family, but no so much with other people. After a very rough day at VCA, I just knew they would NEVER EVER want to see him again. But they forgave him for his extremely bad behavior and continue to welcome him with open arms (as long as he's muzzled--heehee). We love the staff at VCA and I recommend this animal hospital to all of my family and friends! Thank you VCA Airline Blvd. Animal Hospital for all you do!!!!

  • My experience

    -Carole Garrett from Portsmouth, VA
    Pet Name: Savory

    When you take your beloved pet to this caring group of professionals you feel like you truly matter.

    Dr. Carpenter operated on my Min Pin when she was very young and I have been a patient since then, approximately 15 yrs.

    When my precious Savannah could no longer survive I was treated with the utmost sympathy and compassion. Now I have a 3-1/2 year old Pug-A-Poo and, of course he, too, will always be their patient.

  • Peke Blessings

    -Jane Garrett from Portsmouth, VA
    Pet Name: Gracie Lu

    Pet Image If you are fortunate enough to have VCA Airline Boulevard Animal Hospital as the primary care giver for you pets, you are blessed.They attended my Katee and Murfee during very serious illnesses. While each little one was hospitalized, I made daily visits and received daily updates. The entire staff worked diligently to save them but when the end was obvious, I was allowed to hold each one of my little Pekes as they crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. The staff grieved with me. For their caring and their love of Murfee and Katee I shall always be grateful. Fortunately through the efforts of the Potomac Valley Pekingese Rescue, I now have Gracie Lu, a six year old Peke. When we went for our initial visit, the staff celebrated with us and made Gracie feel so loved. Upon arriving at the hospital, both you and your pet are greeted by name.You are enveloped in an atmosphere that instills confidence---confidence that your pet will receive the very best medical treatment available, confidence that, if hospitalized, he will be cared for in a loving manner, confident that you will be kept informed of the ongoing medical status and confidence that, if necessary, additional referrals can and will be made. GRACIE AND I GIVE VCA AIRLINE BOULEVARD ANIMAL HOSPITAL A FIVE STAR RATING. JANE GARRETT AND GRACIE LU
