  • Mattie's Laser Treatment

    -Bill and Penny from Manassas, VA
    Pet Name: Mattie

    Our female Boxer Mattie tore her ACL in her left leg and required a $5,000 surgery that included a six month recovery. Immediately after the recovery period she injured her right ACL. The Manassas Vet wanted to do the same surgery on her right ACL. We decided to get a second opinion, so we contacted Dr. Jackson. Dr J recommended laser treatments at a substantially less cost. We are happy to say Mattie is now running and playing with our other two dogs with no limp or discomfort. Thank you Dr. Jackson and VCA University staff for your kind and professional care!

    Dr. Jackson and VCA Staff,

    Thank you so much for your excellent care of "Buddy" after his scary encounter with another dog. At all times we understood how to care for him, what was happening and really appreciated your willingness to answer any questions that came up. I would not hesitate to receommend your VCA team to anyone who loves their animal. Buddy is on his way to a full recovery thanks to you folks. We feel that your caring and concern were genuine and that meant so much to our family! Thank you again!

  • UVC is the best

    -Teresa Hanula from Fairfax, VA
    Pet Name: Leroy

    Pet Image My dog Leroy has a tendency to break frequently ..whether he drinks too much water while swimming or chips a tooth on a stick, the staff at UVC have been there to fix him back up. One day I was in a panic and called Dr. Jackson's cell phone. I was not sure whether to rush Leroy to an emergency clinic or not but less than a minute later Dr. Jackson called back and met me at the clinic when I needed him the most. To him medicine is a 24 hour job without complaint. What other clinic goes that far to help :)

  • Thank You

    -Dixie's Mom from Arlington, VA

    Dear Dr. Jackson and Staff,

    I just want to thank you for the gift that was given to the Virginia Tech Veterinary Memorial Fund in memory of Dixie. Thank you all for taking care of her and me.

    Tears are still there. God will bring the right dog to me before long.

  • Thank You

    -Lynn Taylo from Alexandria, VA

    Dear Dr. Jackson and Staff,

    Thank you for the considerable kindness you showed our family when our much loved dog, Oliver, died. You were so very kind to Doug and me when we brought him in for euthanasia, and your consideration shown to our daughter has been invaluable.

    As you know, we were quite worried about our daughter's reaction to Oliver's death. The "I Remember My Special Pet" book that you gave us for her and the angel pin were exactly what she needed to work through her sadness. Because of the book, the pin and the grief materials, we were able to help her celebrate Oliver's life and come to terms with his death fairly quickly and in a positive way. She began to work on the "I Remember" book as soon as we returned home from your office and worked on it while wearing the pin. The morning after Oliver's death, she got up bright and early and finished the book before she even had breakfast. She shared the book with her class that week in school. Similarly, she wore the angel pin every day for a week straight. While we all still miss him, she is no longer tearful and can remember the happy times rather than just the suffering and sadness of his final week.

    Thank you again,

    Lynn Taylor
