VCA Annandale Animal Hospital

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.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
