Thank you for making us one of the highest-rated veterinary hospitals in CHESAPEAKE, VA.

Barker Animal Hospital staff is exceptional! When we took our cat Sophia there a few years ago, Dr. Barker was able to calm her down in 2 minutes! Sophia fought us for a good hour prior to the appointment. Dr. Barker was the one who helped us when our pit mix Maggie had to go to sleep due to cancer. Today, we brought our newly adopted pit mix for a check-up. Dr. Shields was very thorough and helpful. The vet assistants were very patient, friendly, and caring. I highly recommend this place for your pets. The staff shows compassion and kindness to pets and their humans.

Dr. Barker and her team are amazing! I recently adopted a new dog and she was having a lot of stomach issues. The former vet the rescue was sending me to was doing nothing to settle the problem. When we decided to go see Dr. Barker for a second opinion she was so sweet to my puppy. Her whole team is inviting and makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in the front door. From the receptionist to the Vet herself and all the techs thank you for everything you have done for my new four-legged baby. She is doing so much better and it’s all because of you!! I highly recommend everyone take their animals to Dr. Barker and her team of amazing techs.
