“I love working with a colleague on a regular basis.  Having a group of cardiologists to discuss cases with is an enormous benefit of working for CVCA.”


“I feel respected by all my coworkers and our administrative team. CVCA treats their employees with respect and makes everyone feel important.”


“I am happy to be part of a team where every member's voice is heard, where we take time to evaluate how we can improve our company and offices through regular meetings, and where we do our best to maintain a positive attitude throughout the day. “


"From a resident's standpoint, I like that with all our doctors involved, I have such a wealth of knowledge and experience available, which creates a diverse learning environment. Having a mentor is good for consistency, but also experiencing the different styles and opinions of the other doctors really helps with the process as a whole, and has helped me to be incredibly successful."


Who We Are


CVCA’s humble beginnings started as a single location in a strip mall in 1987. Today we are the nation’s largest veterinary cardiologist group in 14 locations (and growing!) with 23 board-certified cardiologists and eight residents.  We work with each doctor to ensure their success, encourage collaboration, and seek new ideas from outside and within to improve the company.


Culture and Work Environment. Our culture is unsurpassed in the veterinary industry. Every member of CVCA is committed to offering optimal patient care and superior service to our referring veterinarians and associated departments.  Our focus is on excellence, continuous improvement, and fun.  CVCA is a values-driven organization committed to an exceptional work environment with all team members dedicated to personal and organizational development. Our exceptional culture has allowed us to retain all of our doctors throughout our long history.


Collaborative, Expert Care.  Our team approach to complicated cases allows for ample time off to support interests outside of veterinary medicine.  CVCA is an ACVIM-approved residency training program. We strive to maintain academic standards with weekly journal and case rounds; as well as didactic instruction of our residents. All 14 CVCA sites are located within a multidisciplinary specialty and emergency practice, allowing for collaborative and optimal care of patients.  The expertise of our cardiologists is supported by Philips Epiq CVX echocardiography units, cath lab, and digital radiography.


Relationships with Referral Community and Clients.  With a 30-year history of strong partnerships with primary care veterinarians, CVCA enjoys an exceptional culture of referral.   Our clientele is committed to offering the highest level of care to their pets. CVCA actively contributes to our communities through educational programs, volunteer efforts, and support of local organizations.  Our leadership and marketing teams partner with each doctor to ensure their success.
