Meet the Staff

AVC has five dedicated veterinarians and more than 20 support staff consisting of credentialed veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, kennel assistants, receptionists, and administrative staff. With this highly skilled and caring staff, we can care for all of your pets' needs from laboratory to surgery as well as radiology and basic grooming. In addition to our own “in house” doctors, our veterinarians also have available to them an internet-based network of other practicing veterinarians across the country.
