Yong Chang, DVM, Associate Veterinarian


Dr. Chang joined the VCA Annandale team in the Spring of 2013 from Atlanta, Georgia.  He was educated as a Veterinarian at the Kangwon National University in Chunchun, South Korea and is accredited by the Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates, licensed in South Korea, Pensylvania and now Virginia.

The love of my pets is what brought me to Veterinary Medicine. My lovely dogs; MD, BaDoongE and my cat Monariza led me to become a Veterinarian. Though the time with them was far too limited, that are still on my mind and in my heart.

Working at VCA Annandale Animal Hospital is great because I have the opportunity to meet a new group of pets and clients everyday. Though I sometimes face difficult cases, it brings me great joy when the pet begins to heal and feel better.  That's what makes my heart beat alive.

I am now living with my cat Samdol and my wife. My cat understands commands like sit, stand up, high five and Food (Bob).  It was my wife who trained him as a dog because she has only known dogs in her life. She loves cats now too.

I am very happy to be a part of VCA Annandale Animal Hospital as an Associate Veterinarian. I look forward to meeting all of out clients and pets in the near future.
