Careers for Doctors

CVCA began as Chesapeake Veterinary Cardiology Associates (CVCA) with a single cardiologist in a small strip mall location in Glendale, Maryland in 1987. Our residency program was founded in 1995 to train future cardiologists, all of whom still practice with us today. As our company grew, we geographically distanced ourselves outside of the Chesapeake Bay region, and thus we changed our name to the acronym CVCA. Through CVCA’s dedication to a high level of care and service to the community, we have grown into the nation’s largest veterinary cardiology group with 14 board certified cardiologists and one resident in 12 full-service locations. We pride ourselves in ensuring an excellent quality of life to all team members and work every day to maintain our exceptional reputation.

From the beginning, our focus has always been on creating the best possible experience and outcome for cardiac patients and their families. We know that first-rate service and care can only be delivered through the best people, and we have focused on creating an optimal work environment with team members who share our core values of compassion, excellence and integrity. This is how we built a team who is committed to offering excellent patient care and superior service to our patients, clients and referring veterinarians. It is our privilege to partner with primary care veterinarians throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to offer the highest level of care for pets with cardiovascular disease.
