We hope everyone had a fabulous and fun New Year’s Day, and that your 2017 closed out well with the holidays.  Family, friends, food and festivities are a great way to celebrate.

Ready or not, 2018 is here! We’ve got lots of things going on at Veterinary Neurology and Imaging of the Chesapeake. In the coming months, we’ll be bringing you news, information and some entertaining stories on these pages.

Update on our new facility and new technology

The new CVRC-Annapolis building is well underway. The exterior is nearly completed and our team is finalizing the interior plans. The building will be 28,000 square feet, with VNIoC occupying over 2,800 square feet of dedicated space.

We will be bringing in a 16-slice Toshiba CT to complement our 1.5 T Phillips MRI. Pet Cure Oncology will be adjacent to our “wing,” providing stereotactic radiosurgery as well as conventional radiation treatment.

The likely date for occupying our new space is currently September. More information will follow! [#wearesoexcited]
