I have trusted this crew with my critters' health care for many years. They are wonderful people which shows in their love of all their "guests". I can always in quickly when needed. Seeing a different vet is never a problem because their record keeping is excellent. They always make me feel like their second patient, good news for a nervous furmom! See More

I have always had great service here, but Dr. Moneyhun has elevated it to a new level. I have always struggled with my little exotics, and she has gone above and beyond to help me save my guinea pig. She is truly about the animals, and I would recommend her to anyone.

We took our daughters Chinchilla here with a broken leg, which unfortunately ended up needing to be amputated. Dr. Bellows was incredible. She called us multipl...e times before and after surgery updating us on how Chilla was doing. She was very friendly and did a fantastic job. All of the staff was super nice. They took wonderful care of our Chilla, and we are glad he is recovering well! See More

Since my dad, sister-in-law, and brother are all veterinarians at our family practice, they're typically my go-to team for veterinary care. But since they're al...l in Michigan, I was searching for an AAHA-accredited practice I could take my pet down here in Virginia. I've brought my cat here twice so far, and I've had nothing but pleasant, friendly, and personable experiences. When I had to take my pet into an emergency animal hospital one night, I called Charlottesville Veterinary Hospital the next day for a follow up exam. Not only were they able to get me an appointment within an hour, they had already received all the paperwork from the emergency hospital and happened to be looking it over when I called! I saw Dr. Bergstresser, who was able to articulate everything going on in layman's terms and his recommended course of action. I left with a treatment plan and feeling of confidence that my pet was receiving the same veterinary care that he would've gotten back in Michigan with my family. The staff is very helpful and knew my pet by name when I went back to pick up some prescription food they were nice enough to set aside for me.

The price is very reasonable for the level of care you get here. When looking for a veterinary hospital, I always look for AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) accreditation and also happened to notice they're also AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) accredited. So, again, I couldn't be more confident going to Charlottesville Veterinary Hospital. Absolutely top-notch.

We sought help after our beloved dog suddenly has seizures. The front desk team got us in ASAP. Dr. Luzaich was warm, compassionate, thorough, and knowledgeable. Though, after another visit, we didn't get good news, it was delivered with empathy and warmth. Thank you, Dr. Luzaich and Team

Here is the update on Cooper! He's saying hello to his new family & saying goodbye to Dr. Betts & Carolyn! We are so happy that Cooper has found his new home!!!

The HOWS Project added 9 new photos — with Ginger Brown Hanssen.

UPDATE JAKE (Now named Cooper) ADOPTED 🎉🎊👍💕👏😍🐾

Jake (Cooper from here on out) was adopted on Sunday by a wonderful couple who also happen to be dear friends of ...ours! He hit the jackpot and will be very well cared for and loved the rest of his life. Cooper has a new brother named Duke. They look very much alike but Cooper is half Dukes size. They are getting along wonderfully. We want to give a big thank you to Dr Betts and Carolyn Foreman Betts for fostering Cooper and donating his Vet care since he was their care. This was a very generous gesture and The HOWS Project appreciates it very much! Thank you to the amazing staff at VETSS for his initial emergency care. We would also like to thank the little girl who found Cooper laying on the side of a dirt road in Louisa gravely injured and went to get her mother for help. We want to thank this mother who called animal control, called The HOWS Project, and then drove Cooper to the Emergency Vet in Charlottesville. This mother and her child saved his life for sure! We also want to thank ACO Duke Grady for helping us work with the family to encourage his surrender.
Yay for Cooper! Thank you Ginger Brown Hanssen and Pat for adopting this sweet boy and giving him a second chance at life! We’re HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY 😍🐾😍🐾
