Our team is committed to bringing you and your pet better health by practicing the science of veterinary medicine. We strive to provide welcoming, informative, and supportive services to our clients, while maintaining a top quality working environment for our employees. CSVH offers the Richmond animal community medical, surgical, and dental veterinary care, as well as canine rehabilitation and acupuncture. Our in-house pharmacy, lab, and digital radiology enable you to make one stop for your pet's medical needs.
As a convenience, we offer boarding to our clients. One of the biggest advantages of boarding with us is the onsite medical team. Not only do we offer preventative care such as vaccine updates while your pet is staying with us, but should an emergency arise during boarding, you can be assured that your pet will be promptly and properly attended to.
We are now certified in Low Stress Handling! Our goal is to make every visit an enjoyable one for your pet. Beula is a very nervous dog, but she did well having her nails trimmed while we distracted her with treats. We have a lot of tricks up our sleeves to make every visit with us a happy one!

Pack your bags. Pack your car. Pack your sleigh. But don’t let your pet pack on the holiday pounds. Schedule your pet’s yearly checkup today. Holiday season is upon us — a busy time of year for festivities, family and of course, lots of eating! Did you know that if a ten-pound cat ate just one ounce of cheddar cheese from your hors d’oeuvres, it would be the same as if a person ate three and a half hamburgers or four chocolate bars? Gaining those “holiday pounds” is not just a problem for humans, but also for our four-legged friends. Research shows that pets are more likely to gain unwanted pounds during this holiday period than any other time of year. What pet can resist a potato chip, onion dip or chocolate? (Wait, you know better than to feed them that!) Obesity is the leading medical problem in pets. When a pet is too chubby, not only may they have little energy to walk or play, but also studies have shown that pets who are overweight may have a shortened life span. How can you tell if your pet is at the right weight? It can be hard to know because for many pets, they don’t get a big round belly. Instead, the extra fat is well hidden inside your pet’s body, tucked between their vital organs. So let us check! Our veterinary practice team has a trained eye to best assess your pet’s weight. Bring your pet in for their yearly exam and we’ll take a look at their body condition and nutritional needs. If we determine your pet needs to lose a few pounds, don’t worry. We’ll come up with a plan that will keep you and your pet sailing through the holiday season. Call us today to schedule your pet’s yearly checkup. Happy holidays and remember, pack your suitcase. Pack a trunk. It’s even fine to pack a sleigh. But don’t let your pet pack on the pounds!
