"Everyone was super nice and informative. Hunter is really a great girl with humans, and she enjoyed all the attention she received. Brandi and Dr. Stallings were very thorough, kind and professional. We just need to figure out what will be best for Hunter going forward. Finding out about the heart murmur was a little shocking but so glad we now know. You all do a wonderful job and our family is very thankful!"

"Neyland is home!! He is doing great. Back to his goofy self. He has to be on meds long term and see his vet in a few weeks. But he is doing well, he is very happy to be home. Thank you to The COVE for taking great care of my precious baby."

— Jordan Harness



"The team was thoughtful and patient with Jackson. The entire experience from when I contacted The COVE to the aftercare instructions provided were great. I would definitely use services again and refer family and friends."

"If you have a pet that is sick and you want to receive the best care in a spotless facility at a reasonable price please go to the Cove. For the Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Greenbrier resident might be a little bit far. The reality is you should spend the gas driving there because the care is awesome. They are compassionate, caring and they will treat you and your pet with dignity and will listen to your concerns."

“Brandy was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and genuinely cared about Fury and I. This is my first experience with an injured pet and I was scared and very worried about taking care of him the way he needed to be taken care of so that he could become well again. Brandy put my mind at ease and walked me through the entire process and answered all the questions I had for her, even the stupid ones. She is a valuable part of Fury's treatment and I am so pleased that she is so kind and patient. Thank you, Brandy. Love, Fury & his mom”

“Always greeted with friendly and pleasant smile. Our wait is very minimal and Dr. Small is very informative and complete. She always has time to answer our questions. We do feel we have our baby in qualified caring hands. With the care from her primary care physician and Dr. Small we feel we have the very best available for Madison's care.”

"The staff at The COVE are AMAZING! They were very friendly and explained EVERYTHING. Words don't express the expertise from the dr who calmed my thoughts and worked out a plan for my dog so he can have a good quality of life for the remainder of it.

Thank you,too, to a very special person who made it possible for my Rocky to see the cardiologist. I'm forever in your debt and overwhelmed with your gracious donation for testing and evaluation of him."

— Darlene Trudeau



"For emergency pet care, I highly recommend The COVE. They greeted me at the reception desk, immediately took my dog, Sandy back and began emergency care. During the 48 hours Sandy was with them, I was kept informed on her status, and the care she was receiving via phone calls. I was encouraged to call, no matter what the hour, if I wanted to check on her. The COVE provides compassion, care, and professionalism."

— Beverly Judkins



"The COVE was the absolute best vet experience I have ever received. They kept my 10-month-old lab puppy in the hospital for 3 days. During this time, they always kept me informed on her status and let me know results and progress along the way. Following her discharge, they have remained in contact to check up on her. The staff was very helpful and always so loving towards my girl. Highly recommend this facility."

— Courtney



"First of all I just can't thank you enough! I know without a doubt in my mind that without The COVE and their staff, Harmony would not be here right now. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. All the nurses put up with me coming to feed her all hours of the night once we finally got her eating food when she was in ICU. No one ever rushed me and always answered any questions. Honestly the whole time she was there was like a blur because it's so emotional thinking you are about to lose your baby. So the staff being so welcoming and informative really eased my mind. I knew when I couldn't be there with her that she was recieving the best care possible. Harmony is still improving and almost back to her old self. Thank you so much and everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving!"
