My cat was injured right before Xmas. The staff here were wonderful. They took my cat in for emergency surgery and were able to save her eye without issue. The vet was also kind enough to work with my schedule for my cats follow up appointment. I appreciate all of the hard work and level of dedication to my animal. I will definitely refer anyone in need for their animal to this facility.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Heather, she was phenomenal and the surgery plus the after care was a fraction of what I had paid to my vet for 6 visits that didn’t work. Dr. Heather is caring and called to follow up- great Dr that I highly recommend. I wish I knew of them prior to so many wasted visits to my regular vet. I even sent my sister and her dog there, I just recommended my coworker as well. My sister had the same great results! Very happy family! I can’t say enough about the fantastic service and value of Animal Vision Center and Dr Heather. Starfire has recovered and has no issues- totally healed and healthy! Thanks so much for helping my baby.

I came here with my grandmother & her dog & the experience here exceeded my expectations. Everyone was so kind & friendly & informative from the minute we pulled up til the time we left! The staff is seriously amazing & loved our dog as if it was their own. The communication was also amazing. Will always refer people to this place!! Great experience and amazing staff! Huge thank you to all the ladies here!

When I started coming to Animal Vision Center it was last year after my dog had undergone a routine cataract surgery at a different clinic that left him blind. The clinic that performed the surgery was terrible with follow ups and the surgery caused him to have glaucoma and he was in so much pain his blood pressure was high. He developed a terrible ulcer on his left eye as well. We were so frustrated until we found Dr. Heather and Animal Vision Center. This was all during Covid but when we had an appointment I had an ipad so I could participate in the exam, this was soooo helpful!!! Dr. Heather switched his medicines, and got his left eye to heal (we were looking at complete removal surgery) she saved his eyes, got him comfortable and pain free again, also he no longer needs high blood pressure medicine. I am so glad I switched to this practice, and I would recommend them to anyone with a pet that needs specialty eye care. They are very professional and caring.

Absolutely impressed with this place. First I want to say, I was like 15 minutes late, and OMG I'm so sorry. But they still worked me in and I didn't have to wait long at all! I saw Dr. Heather and she was great, friendly, professional, and thorough with her explanations. I really wish she was my dog's general vet. Also, her staff were really friendly as well. I don't know what receptionist I talked to but she was absolutely friendly and sweet. I needed her to repeat a couple things and she was just patient and great. When you bring your pet here, they have you sit outside in your vehicle and they bring you an iPad and Dr. Heather calls you during your pet's examination. You not only get to talk to her, but you get to watch the examination. My Pug is naturally skittish around strangers in strange places and the gentleman who was holding my dog was absolutely awesome. If you are referred to multiple eye specialists that you can choose from, go here!!

Can't say enough positive things about Dr. Brookshire and her team. Friendly, knowledgeable, and of course, gentle and caring with their patients. I've seen a few people already say this but I'll repeat it - wish AVC could be my regular vet!

I did a road trip from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, to have my dog eyes checked for possible surgery. Doctor Heather and her staff were very professional and took care of my doggie so good. They answered all of are questions before and after the procedure. I'm looking forward to seeing them again, during the follow up visits.

Dr. Brookshire and the entire team at AVCV are blessings for me my pup's glaucoma struggles. I drive there from out of town and would do so every day if I had to because there no other medical practice that even comes to close to these guys. They are always available when you need them most and when it comes to the urgency or timeliness of many interventions for our pet's eyes- I can't express enough how grateful I am to have had them come through for us in the past and made both dog and human as comfortable as possible in the process. Anyone who can should come here for everything preemptive, diagnostic and treatment related for your pet's eye health. Thank you, AVCV!

Couldn't have been happier. My cat has had recurring pink eye his entire life. I noticed it starting up again one night so I called after hours, left A message asking if by some miracle they could see me the next day as I am not a client and this wasn't a referral. The office called me first thing in the morning, told me I could go to the office and get squeezed in! WHAT?! I hopped right in the car and drove over to the clinic in Suffolk. FIRST thing I noticed- that clinic is part of a 24 hour place and BTW that staff was incredible. Very kind, kept the place moving and clean. Now... The staff at the animal vision center- SAME THING. Super friendly. 2 techs and the vet got me in quickly. She took a look at his eye, said she could get him fixed up. He got his meds, suggested some over the counter stuff to keep the pink eye at Bay and sent me out at a very reasonable price in no time FLAT. Couldn't believe how good this visit went and I don't have to run all over the world for meds. Nor did she make me feel like I'm a bad cat mom. So I give this place 5 stars! ????

Great place to take pets in need of help for their eyes, clean professional atmosphere; staff is not only nice, but they are compassionate and attentive as well. So glad I took my new vets reccomendation to come here for my cats eye treatment.

Dr. Brookshire is amazing! I have a 14 month old Shih Tzu (Molly) that had her eye scratched by a cat. She needed surgery to repair the eye and I needed reassurance that my Molly would be ok. She went above and beyond with both. The same day I took Molly to be seen by Dr. Brookshire, she performed surgery that evening. Molly is 100% back to her normal self and will be forever grateful for the compassion and love Dr. Brookshire has for animals. Now if she could only teach Molly to not play with cats:) Many thanks to her!

Extremely courteous and prompt service, with reasonable fees. As with any veterinary specialist, I braced myself for hearing the total owed on my bill, and was relieved when I realized I wouldn't have to take out a second mortgage! Especially when the cat I was getting seen didn't even belong to me, but rather to a neighbor that was just letting his condition go til it looked like a dead fish eyeball. Animal Vision Center is getting him back on track and I won't have to rob a bank to pay them!

I could not believe how quickly they were able to get me in less than 24 hours. They explained so much to me took their time with my pet. The receptionist was awesome too. They printed out my meds in a chart form with directions. Then they followed up with me the next day early afternoon and again later that afternoon with the blood results, then forwarded the results to my local vet for follow up. They are awesome.

My 10 year old Newfoundland dog developed cysts around her eye and we were referred to the Animal Vision Center. I easily made an appointment and saw Dr Berkshire at the COVE in Suffolk where they have an additional Friday clinic. Dr Berkshire and her tech were terrific. They assessed Harriet and gave me a diagnosis, treatment plan and price. They were able to use cryotherapy to remove 3 cysts. They provided anti-inflammatory medication and antibiotic ointment. The price was very reasonable and my lovely girl is doing great. I am so glad they were able to help us so quickly, easily and professionally. Thank you so much!!! I highly recommend Animal Vision Center. ????

Professional, quality care. My dog had cataract surgery in both eyes and the care was excellent. He still goes for check ups, and it has made a huge difference in his life.

Dr. Brookshire is wonderful. Very compassionate to pet and owner as well as extremely knowledgable about my shih tzu 's corneal ulcer. She is very patient with my iuncooperative 2 1/2 year old dog. I am so grateful that Chryssi is healing. The staff is great too. I highly recommend Animal Vision Center for any of your pets eye care needs.

Amazing experience with this team. My baby, also know as Jett the wonder dog, was diagnosed with diabetes. He’s a mini schnauzer and got cataracts very quickly. Within 3 weeks he was totally blind. Our vet recommended that we see dr. Brookshire ASAP. Got him in immediately and had his surgery a few days later and he can SEE! Really see - no more running into the wall - he can run down the stairs without falling. Here’s the best part - this team communicates better than any doctor I’ve ever been to - human or pet. There have been no miscues, bad information or unanswered questions. They are amazing communicators. If you have a dog with eye/vision issues go see Animal Vision Center. It’s well worth every dime!

We are so happy to have found the Animal Vision Center of Virginia. We traveled from New Jersey with our Lhasa Apso to be seen there. We have gotten the best care. Our blind dog can now see again. They are so compassionate and are top notch professionals. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Brookshire, Melissa, Veronica, Emily, Ashlyn, Allyson & Amari. Thank you so much for everything.

First visit, took my Yorkie in to get her eye examined and confirmed she had dry eye. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes, armed with a full diagnosis, treatment plan and all my questions answered. It was all affordable and well worth the cost to know my Yorkie is getting proper care for her eye based on an assessment by an eye specialist. They were very gentle and sweet with my terrified Yorkie, and got the exam done quickly.

I have an older dog named Anji San who required cherry eye surgery in both eyes (separate instances) and Dr Brookshire handled my geriatric fellow with compassion and professionalism. She provided me estimates for both surgeries as well as …

I took our German Shepherd, Bella, who is my husband's service animal, to AVCV for extreme of redness in both eyes. From the very moment we walked in the door, we were greeted with such kindness and compassion - not the kind that you receive when the front desk employee is treating the customers like cattle and has that "Next" attitude. Both Bella AND I were treated as family and it was genuine. Dr. Brookshire came in the room promptly and was so gentle and kind to Bella as she examined her eyes. Bella, who is sensitive to them being messed with, was very comfortable and allowed Dr. Brookshire to perform the exam rather easily. The DX was determined and clearly explained, the RX was prescribed, and we were able to go. With the very first dosage of the drops, Bella's eyes cleared up and she is doing just fine. Even though we live in NC and do have an animal eye specialist closer to our home, we will make that trek when Bella needs a check up as Bella is comfortable and that is a major priority for a dog who is so important to my husband's needs and my peace of mind. Thank you and God bless you, Dr. Brookshire and your entire staff.

5 stars doesn’t feel like enough stars! I can hardly express how wonderful our experience was! We were greeted and welcomed by a friendly staff, the office is clean and features attractive decor- most importantly the doctor was knowledgeable, explained multiple options for my dogs treatment and supported my choice for treatment fully, and to top it all off it was beyond affordable! Making health decisions for pets can be very stressful, that was not the case here! I am so glad my dogs cornea ulcer is all better now, but I honestly kind of miss going! I smile when I drive by, and I am so blessed Tootsie was treated here!

Dr. Brookshire is amazing. Last year they saved our Johnny’s left eye. At 16+ years old, he recently had a very rapid infection that pierced his right eye making removal necessary. He has limited vision now but has made a quick recovery. We are so grateful to Dr. Brookshire and her team. Marty and Neil

I couldn't say enough about Dr. Brookshire, both as a veterinarian and as a person. She is a pillar to our community providing services to those pets that live in Senior Living, she serves to bring the veterinary community together on a regular basis, she is always welcoming to our crazy ocular emergencies that we encounter during general practice, and her staff and cute clinic are fabulous! She is willing to travel around the area and come to you or make arrangements to have a pet travel to her if needed. She is so accommodating and knowledgeable and we could not practice our general practice medicine or emergency medicine without her!
