Let’s face it: We love our pets better than some people. And some of us love our pets more than most people.

So animal hospitals are a big deal. Since 2014, this animal hospital headed by the husband-and-wife team of veterinary doctors, Heather and Anthony O’Sullivan, has been earning major votes in this category.

“At River City Veterinary Hospital, we strive to ensure every client is extremely well-informed and comfortable with every step of their pet’s care,” says office manager Stacey Turner. “We are always there for our patients and have a wonderful team that works together to ensure the best approach to every situation while maintaining that family feel our clients always appreciate.”

She notes that recently the hospital has have added another associate veterinarian, a brand new, state-of-the-art ultrasound, a new dental machine and dental X-ray unit.

Among its veterinary services: X-ray and ultrasound diagnostics, an in-house lab, surgery, dental, immunizations, senior health care and yes, even acupuncture in the hospital or at home. The hospital also helps with animal rescue by working closely with groups such as the Richmond SPCA, Henrico Humane Society, River City Bulldog Rescue and the Richmond Wildlife Center among many organizations.
