James River Veterinary Surgery was founded on the belief that healing comes not only from the finest surgical care, but also from honest communication and genuine compassion. A premier veterinary surgical service in central Virginia, JRVS offers each of these qualities when treating your companion animal. We are a cornerstone partner in the treatment of patients suffering from trauma, cancer, developmental and acquired orthopedic abnormalities, and other surgically-related diseases affecting the gastrointestinal, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive tracts.

We believe that providing cutting-edge surgical, regenerative, and medical therapies to improve your companion’s quality of life while delivering honest and compassionate communication with you and your veterinarian goes hand in hand. The JRVS team is dedicated to thinking outside the box and always going the extra mile for your beloved pet.
