Client Testimonials

Michelle B.

A wonderful vet clinic. Have been attending them for 9+ years since they were at Zillmere. The vets, nurses and customer relations team are all so beautiful and knowledgeable. Very grateful to have them looking after my pups, and for their kindness and compassion when we lost one of our babies.


I chose this vet about a year ago because it’s fear free certification. It has lived up to that and more! The vets are absolutely amazing, so caring and are always willing to try anything I suggest to make things less stressful for her. Today she had a procedure with them and they could not have done better. They loved and cared for her like she was their own and she woke up so smoothly and without any stress. I will continue to take the long drive out to them as they are without doubt, the best vet clinic I have ever known!!

A++ 10/10 Great vet!! We have been to multiple vets in the area trying to find one that we can trust and also has reasonable pricing. And we found it here at Virginia Family Vet. Not only is all the staff super friendly but their vets are extremely knowledgeable. I feel so safe knowing the service and advice our animals receive is nothing but top shelf! Thank You Virginia Family Vet. We look forward to many many years of service here.
